The BlackBerry Curve 8900 “Javelin” is not released yet and is a stellar device… it certainly is the next thing now! Compared to the Bold the dimensions are great deal smaller in size and weight. Also, the screen size of the Javelin looks to be 480×360 while the Bold is 480×320.

The looks of the Javelin is pure Bold but with the form factor of a Curve. In addition, the fresh unreleased Javelin has a 3.2 megapixel camera with video capabilities, while the Bold has a 2.0 megapixel camera with video (The original Curve didn’t have video capabilities until the updated 4.3.1 & 4.5 OS). Another slick move is the OS… the same as the Bold so this certainly makes everything move faster.

One more key feature we realized as we quickly played around is that it said “you can use the UMA-WiFi connection to do the following: send and receive e-mails, make calls, and visit web pages”. So this means that it’ll be enabled with Rogers Talkspot (you’ll be able to use this in your home without wasting your minutes).

Here is our quick review of the upcoming BlackBerry Javelin:

    Hopefully NEVER because Bell is the worst service provider HANDS DOWN. I can't wait to buy this phone on Rogers and tell Bell to stick it.

    For all those Bell 'bashers' out there, Bell has signed up 408,000 NEW (Former Telus and Rogers) customers in the past year on their mobility plans, why, pricing! Being a bell employee myself, we have seen the jump in this and are happy to announce on this posting.

    BTW, did you know that BELL has also been a GPRS (GSM) provider for Rogers since they got into the cell business? Rogers and Telus lease our lines.

    Rogers and Telus are NOW just getting into the Voice activated speech to text features, something that Bell has had for years!

    So before you 'bash' Bell, look at what we've done and where we are going!

    Now if only Bell would release popular phones at the same time as other carriers… their clients would be 10x happier and might even take a stab at the younger consumers which Telus and Rogers have been capitalizing on for years…

    i agree with Logan… Telus and Rogers do seem to get nicer and newer phones before Bell. And Telus is doing a smart thing too, they might be switching to GSM, but people with CDMA can still keep their phones. Smart moves, i give props to Roger and Telus. Bell needs help!
