Default Difference between Niagra and Javelin?

Please Login to Remove!

Are the only differences between these two, the fact that the Niagara is a 3G CDMA versus the Javelin being a GSM edge

No theres more than that. The Niagara is the CDMA Bold, and it's also taking the place of the 8830 WE. It has Wifi and runs on Rev A. On GSM the flagship is the Bold, with the 8900 being a step down on the totem pole. Now for CDMA carriers it's going to be the Niagara as the premier business device and the Jupiter(code-name) being the CDMA variant of the Javelin. The Jupiter will run on Rev 0. Hope this explains it better. Below is a link to some "rumored" specs. They are pretty much dead on.

So the Niagara is a brick. The Jav is slick and light.

T-Mobile store managers were told they would get it first of next year.
