Rogers was the first to get the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 (aka Javelin) and it looks like T-Mobile USA may be the first carrier in the U.S. to get this updated device.

The Curve 8900 has WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, EDGE wireless data (sorry, no T-Mobile 3G here), 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and video, and 512 MHz processor. I don't see anything on the site about UMA support, but since the BlackBerry Curve I have on T-Mobile supports this and the 8900 has WiFi you can bet it is likely this model will support the UMA Hotspot @Home functionality too.

UPDATE: T-Mobile just issued the official press release for the T-Mobile Curve 8900. UMA is confirmed as well as all the other specifications we already know about.
