Not sure if your original question has been answered... looks like it. Anyway, owning both, I'd say that the 8900 has a superior camera, and GPS. And is by the smallest of margins a tad slimmer. Anything else, they're either identical, or the 8520 actually comes out on top - namely processor speed/power.
For ME, the thing that got me to keep the 8520 (and give my wife the 8900) was the Pad vs. Trackball. I HATE the trackballs - especially now, seeing how much better the touch pad works. Any future BB I get will have to have one. (will revisit after a few months - ensuring durability)
Found that 'light at the end of the tunnel' everyone talks about... turns out it was just STRESS looking for me with a flashlight.
