When we reviewed an unreleased 8900 we found out that it was UMA capable (Rogers Talkspot) and also comes with WiFi, GPS and a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus.
More info soon and we’ll see when Rogers officially releases this.
** UPDATE** BBNews: “Here’s the deal, it looks like the brand new Curve is out-of-stock for new activations. However, we have confirmed that those who are due for a Hardware upgrade have purchased the device already for $179.00. Rogers couldn’t tell me when they’ll have more 8900’s in stock for us regular folks, but if you’re due for an upgrade give them a call and let us know how it went below. We were told 3-5 shipping days.”
