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.

    Yes, this device does have UMA. The person that was showing it to me did a POOR job of trying to convince me to give up my iPhone for this device. I can't fault them for trying, but it was hard to be polite and not laugh at most of the comparative comments they made. If you have a BB already and "all you want to do is email" then this is a good upgrade; if you want to do more than just email, get an iPhone or Android.
