Updating my blackberry 8530
I've had nothing but trouble with my 8530 since I got it with Sprint.
It constantly freezes, the battery drains worse than any Blackberry I've ever owned before (including the original Curve and Tour), it's slow as molasses, and it STILL doesn't have Rev. I purchased it because it was free for me, and yes, I was aware that it didn't have Rev.

Admit it, you feel naked without your Curve, don’t you?
What sets the two devices apart is that the 8530 replaces the trackball with an optical trackpad.
The 8520 was the first RIM device we saw with this, but we’ve seen it on all RIM devices since save the trackball/pad-less 95xx series.
