Cool Javlin UK release

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know when the Javelin is due to be released in UK and on what network?

I am deciding whether to go for the Bold or wait for the Javelin.

I think all the UK networks will sell the Javelin.

Its listed on the Carphone Warehouse website as 'coming soon' should be sometime this month.
