Research In Motion's new smartphone, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 includes both business-oriented functionality as well as several consumer-friendly features, such as music and games. On the workday side of things, users can perform light editing of Word and PowerPoint documents, support up to 10 email accounts, and connect to the Web via WiFi and T-Mobile's mobile network. Our review found that the device managed to straddle both worlds effectively, giving something to both enterprise users and those who want a smartphone to better manage their off-time.
