A lot of money has been spent marketing the Curve brand, it only makes sense to capitalize on it with the new phone. Not to mention the phone looks like an evolved 83xx.

I'm in the same boat as you!!!

I didnt even hear a release date I've even called tmobile and they telling me the only thing they got coming out from blackberry is that BB flip pearl i rather wait then to dump my money on a new curve 8320 then to extend my contract and be with them for 4 years instead of 2 years!!!! because my contract is already up as of now ..

The Blackberry 8900 (Curve or Javelin, which ever pleases you) has not been OFFICIALLY announced by RIM yet. Although we do expect it to come out sometime in the near future, for all we know, they can entirely scrap the phone and never come out with it. T-mobile cannot tell you when this phone is going to be released until RIM first announces it.

So following the KickStart - Pearl & Javelin - Curve method, do you think the Thunder will be seeing release as a Bold, or a whole new family?

That's why I like my 8800, it's just 8800. Stupid Pearl messing up the program, stick to the numbers!

Well, the Javelin was never officially named the Javelin. "Javalin" was just the code name for the phone, just as most of the other blackberry devices were given before thier release, such as the 8700 "electron" and the Curve "baby bear", "mama bear", and "papa bear". The "Javalin" is actually the Curve 2, and will most likely not be released as the Blackberry Javelin.
