BlackBerry Javelin comes into focus
Lost in the hubbub of the Bold and Thunder, the Javelin has a rather impressive feature set of its long as 3G isn't your thing. The 8301/8900/9300 Javelin is reported to be packing 512MHz processor with 256MB of flash memory with microSD expansion, Wi-Fi and GPS. It will also feature a 3.2 megapixel camera, microUSB charging/data port and an HVGA+ (480x360) display.

Well thats a disappointment, why have a phone at all if you have to go by T-Mobiles coverage area. Might as well buy 2 cups and some string as use them as a cell phone...

Sometimes I wish firefox could block some of the idiotic-incompetent posters on this site. Lol. "Retard" ...I mean, What grade are you in? Javelin & Niagra are NOT the same device with different names. They are variants of each other similar to what poster "15" describes. Niagra has EVDO Rev-A. Javelin has WIFI+UMA. The design is slightly tweaked with the CDMA variant; The buttons are adjacent to each other as opposed to spaced on the GSM variant.

Uhhhhh, the shortened form of advertising is "ad" not "add." ADD is short for Attention Deficit Disorder, which I suspect you have, since you couldn't pay attention long enough to learn to spell.

T-Mobile coverage is fine if you don't live in the boonies. Damn rednecks that do live in the middle of nowhere are the only ones who bitch and moan.

Rednecks??? ha ha. In Minnesota I think many would disagree. A lot of people from the Twin Cities drive to northern Minnesota to there cabins which is out in the "Boonies". I would hardly call them rednecks. As for myself, I have a college degree and choose to live in a small town in the "Boonies", but the difference here is that no one bitches unless they have something other than Verizon. Plus the whole stereotype of a "Redneck" is someone that is mentally and sometimes physically challenged so you could assume that a "Redneck" would not be able to operate a computer let alone get internet service in the "Boonies". However the people on here are bitching so I think it would be safe to assume that you are actually calling inteligent "Non Redneck" people like yourself "Rednecks". Nice job in putting yourself in that category. Next time think about what your trying to say or who you are trying to say it to. You might actually get a response from a smart "Redneck" like myself.

t-mobile sucks in more places than just the boonies. I live in a city of about 100 thousand on a major highway and t-mobile is almost non existent up here.

ViperMatriXM, if you would do your research, (but that would require you to think) you would see that it will be released as both a GSM (on t-mobile) and CDMA with Verizon, not a t-mobile exclusive. Different names is the only difference

I Already Know This! The Javelin Is A T-Mobile Exclusive & The Niagara Is A Verizon Exclusive As We'll As The Bold Going With AT&T & Sprint!

T-Mobile is getting this? WTF?????????? I guess I'm not getting it then

11. Scorpio_diva2007 unregistered

How come it doesn't show this phone for the upcoming for T-Mobile?

30. ViperMatrixXM unregistered

Reason Is It Is Not Released In The Market!

12. Jay84Virgo unregistered

CDMA Carriers are getting the Niagra...NOT the Javelin.

31. ViperMatrixXM unregistered

Incorrect! Only Verizon! Sprint Will Have The Bold!

You sure the niagra isn't the cdma version of the Bold??

15. unregistered

The Javelin and Niagra are variants of each other, the CDMA camp is just getting the Thunder and Niagra (with EV-DO)

32. ViperMatrixXM unregistered

Incorrect! Bold = AT&T & Sprint! Javelin = T-Mobile Niagara = Verizon! The Reasoning In Way They Have Different Names & Why Didn't All 4 Just Release The Bold Is Because The Bold Is The Same Of The Other 2 But The Companies Requested Special Features!
