Default Blackberry Javelin?

Please Login to Remove!

This device looks awesome.

Basically a Bold/Curve with more space between the keys.

Why rim why??? That should of been the bold!!!! That is 10x better then the bold, the keyboard alone looks like the best keyboard of them all. Yet they didn't include 3g.

I want that device with 3g!

well if this thing is coming out in 2009 hopefully TMO will get this since my contract will be up. I will either jump ship to AT&T or keep TMO if either gets it. It's pretty much a curve 2.0

Agreed. Much better looking then the Bold. What I don't understand is why RIM would make any more devices without 3G. Its a bit of a negative considering the current nature of the smartphone market.

Yeah, the only justification that I can come up with is that by the time this is released ('09) it will be dirt cheap and let RIM sell BB's at a very low price point.

Problem is, by the time this device is release, it will probably be one of the only smartphones made that doesn't offer 3G. That spells a turkey in my book. This is something Palm would pull.

It's just different enough from the Bold to be a completely different animal. The keyboard is way different. Separated keys as compared to the 8800-style keyboard of the Bold. I was hoping it would be released through T-Mobile (no real 3G) along side the AT&T Bold release. But apparently it's mid-2009. And that sucks. Hard. Cool device though.

I just don't understand why RIM would release a new unit without 3g if it is for the GSM market. I understand that T-Mo doesn't officially have a 3G footprint yet, but it just doesn't make sense. I bought an 8300, then an 8320, which I still love. I will definitely replace it with a Bold, or a 3G variant of the Javelin, but there is no way I will spend good money on a Curve in a new form factor. I'm no marketing expert, but I can't imagine that I am the only one that will think this way when this thing comes out. The carriers will make plenty of sales of these units if they replace the Curve with it, but I can't imagine that they will get much in the way of upgrade sales to current Curve users.

I guess there is a certain logic to releasing a non-3G Blackberry, especially for those carriers that don't have 3G. If it's significantly cheaper than the Bold then it fills a niche. The different keyboard may also be a draw for those that never liked the 8800-style keyboard. Even though I'm on T-Lame-o, I'll probably go for the Bold, unlocked, just to keep my options open as far as jumping to AT&T. In the end, the Javelin's success will hinge on price, IMHO.
