The folks at Crackberry has obtained marketing photos of RIM's new non-3G smartphone, the Blackberry Javelin, which gives us the down low on the details of the phone. Javelin will contain a 512 MHz processor, 256 MB of onboard flash memory plus a hot-swappable microSD slot, a hi-res 460 x 360 HVGA+ display, Wi-Fi with UMA and GPS, and a 3.2 megapixel camera. What briefly piques my interest though is the promise of "integrated lens/LCD technology." Does that mean a second camera hidden behind the display or is it just more ad speak for "the display is pretty"? The release date still seems to be slated for 2009. [Crackberry]
Agreed. This is a very nice phone, but I wouldn't buy a phone with no 3G. Even T-Mo is rolling out 3G.
I was holding out for the Bold, but it was taking too long, so I bought a 3G iPhone.
That said, I did have a Blackberry Curve with WiFi and loved it. The build quality was great and the UMA functionality was awesome. I was using UMA in hotspots when travelling overseas to make free calls to the U.S., but they made me stop. BB just keeps getting better.
