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).
