On Monday, ZDNet UK had the chance to check out Research In Motion's latest BlackBerry, the Curve 8520.
The smartphone is the first in RIM's line-up to use an optical trackpad for input, and the first to include dedicated media playback buttons.
Although pricing has not yet been announced, RIM has said the entry-level handset is intended to be its cheapest yet.
The 8520 has softer curves than other BlackBerry smartphones. That gives it a feel that is more in line with modern handsets such as the Palm Pre, compared with other RIM handsets.
The picture above also shows the BlackBerry's 3.5mm headphone jack and USB connector.
