BlackBerry Curve 8900 (aka Javelin) announced by RIM and Rogers

Summary: I have been very pleased with my Sunset BlackBerry Curve on T-Mobile and was very impressed with the BlackBerry Bold that I had for a couple of weeks. Today, RIM and Rogers announced the BlackBerry Curve 8900 (aka Javelin) that has been known to be coming for a few months. The Curve 8900 builds upon the Curve and offers a device that isn't as large as the Bold for those still looking for a more compact QWERTY keyboard BlackBerry device.

BlackBerry Curve 8900 (aka Javelin) announced by RIM and RogersI have been very pleased with my Sunset BlackBerry Curve on T-Mobile and was very impressed with the BlackBerry Bold that I had for a couple of weeks. Today, RIM and Rogers announced the BlackBerry Curve 8900 (aka Javelin) that has been known to be coming for a few months. The Curve 8900 builds upon the Curve and offers a device that isn't as large as the Bold for those still looking for a more compact QWERTY keyboard BlackBerry device.

The BlackBerry Curve 8900 is the thinnest full QWERTY BlackBerry device (0.53 inches thick) and gives you WiFi (supports UMA), GPS, 512MHz procesor and a 480x360 high resolution display. You won't get the 3G wireless radio (reserved for the Bold), but when you are focused on email more than browsing do you really need the 3G radio? You also now get a 3.2 megapixel camera and the latest BlackBerry OS, version 4.6.

The new BlackBerry Curve 8900 is available now for Rogers customers for CAD$179.99 with a 3-year voice and data plan (wow, I thought a 2-year plan was a lengthy committment). I'm sure we will be seeing this come to T-Mobile and other US carriers soon too. Thanks to MobileTechReview for the heads-up on the news.
