I got into really looking at the 8520 tonight. The more I looked at it the more I was drawn to it. Then I started to see something. I started to see a bit of the Storm 2 in this Curve. Now obviously, this is no where near the Storm 2 but there's one thing that really makes me see a little bit of the Storm 2 in it. Let me show you.
Do you see it?
Now? One more.
Now? If you take away the keyboard and remove the optical track pad, you got yourself the Storm 2 screen. May just be a coincidence but I personally think the 8520 may also be helping RIM out with how the public adapts to the screen which is on the Storm 2. Only assumptions but I think there is more behind this phone then we are made to think. It may be a lower end BB but I think it also is providing RIM some much needed feedback for their Storm 2. I could be wrong.
I can easily see a Storm 2 screen.
