Orange and Research in Motion have joined forces to release the new BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone in Spain, although customers in the UK can own it via Vodafone.

As well as a full qwerty keyboard, the device also has a touch-sensitive trackpad that is said to provide a “great navigation experience” and easy access to a wide range of applications.

The BlackBerry 8520 also has media keys to enable users to control their music and video while on the move and could appeal to those planning to sell their used mobiles and upgrade to something more cutting-edge.

Each handset has a number of features that are increasingly becoming standard on smartphones such as built-in Wi-Fi, quad-band world phone and Bluetooth support for devices such as headphones and hands-free headsets.

There is also an onboard two megapixel camera with zoom and video recording and a media player that enables content to be synced with iTunes or Windows Media Player as well as support for up to ten email accounts.
