BlackBerry Javelin 8900 gets reviewed

September 20, 2008 | By | 3 Comments

First it was a unreleased BlackBerry Bold, now its a unreleased BlackBerry Javlein that the folks over at CrackBerry got their hands on. The BlackBerry Javelin will be pretty much the Curve replacement. It will not be a 3G smartphone, but will sport a 3.2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, 256MB onboard internal memory, micro USB connection, high resolution display, Wi-Fi and a much thinner design.

The Javelin also features a new battery door latch which you’ll notice in some of the pictures. Here’s a quick run down of Javelin’s key features:

  • Quad-band radios: GSM/GPRS/EDGE (no 3G)
  • Wi-Fi b/g with UMA + GPS in one
  • OS 4.6.1, featuring Safe Mode start up
  • 480 by 360 high-res HVGA+ display
  • 512 MHz Processor
  • 256 MB onboard flash memory (more room for apps)
  • Hot-swappable microSD slot – located under the battery door
  • 3.2MP camera
  • Micro USB charging/syncing port, w/ high speed data

You should expect to see RIM announce the BlackBerry Javelin within the next few months. Making it just in time for Christmas this year… I should remind everyone that this device will feature a QWERTY keyboard. Kevin simply managed to get himself a french version of the device (azerty).

    I know most people out there want the Bold, but this is the phone I want. Most of the ‘extra’ features you get in the Bold, or things I’m not all that interested. This, is just what I’m looking forward to. And, by the time Verizon gets it (always last one, except on the Storm), I’ll have my plan up and can afford it… Or, I’ll have chosen it for my tax return buy and get it then.

    I’d pound Kristy’s pooter. As long as its trimmed up and clean. I will buy Javelin soon

    wut extra features does bold have ?
    i thought 8900 has a bit updated OS for browsing other than that everything is the same.  differences in specs are bold has faster processor, and 3g.  curve has more ram and better camera.  bold also has more networks to operate on. 
    wut ‘extra’ features r u talking about kristy ?
