The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8520 is making the rounds. First debuting with T-Mobile and recently announced for Sprint and Verizon (as the Curve 8530), the Curve will now also be available at AT&T in the coming weeks for $99.99 with a two-year contract and a mail-in rebate.

While more of an entry-level device, the Curve 8520 has integrated Wi-Fi and includes access to AT&T's 20,000 hot spots nationwide. The smartphone also features a 320x240 display, an optical trackpad, dedicated media keys, and a 2 megapixel camera with video-recording capabilities.

In addition to the Curve news, the carrier confirmed via Twitter that the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 will be available starting November 22 for $199.99 with a two-year contract.
