August may be all about the kiddies and their back to school adventures, but while you're stocking up on binders and pencils, don't forget about all of the brand new gadget gear that is just hitting store shelves. From cell phones and geeky shows to fancy schmancy alarm clocks, here are five new devices and accessories that you may want to get up close and personal with.
Looks like it's time to add another BlackBerry to the quickly expanding list! Coming to T-Mobile and Wal-Mart stores across the country on Aug. 5, is the BlackBerry Curve 8520, which will cost $130 on a two-year contract. Unlike the Curve 8900, which offers a beautiful 3.2 megapixel camera, the 8520 only comes with a 2 megapixel cam, but it does come with a new trackpad (goodbye tracking ball) and is said to include out-of-the-box Max compatibility. It also offers a WiFi radio, a video recording mode, and media specific keys.
