BlackBerry Curve 8900 arrives

The glorious magnificent Curve 8900 AKA Javelin has just hit Germany, on T-Mobile. TBC for the UK.

RIM’s been a busy bee of late, with the Flip, the Storm and now the latest rendition of the Curve.

After a quick call to BlackBerry’s press office, and yes they are still speaking to us, it appears nothing has been confirmed as yet for Blighty. We were however prompted to keep our eyes open for something perhaps next week.

What’s been described to us as ‘the old Curve, but with the BlackBerry Bold’s screen’ is looking to be a winner. It could be ideal for those not wishing to go down the exec-looking route of the Bold, and wanting to stay clear of the oncoming Storm.

The only details we’ve really seen so far on the handset relates to it being of Quad band in nature, with a 2.4-inch screen, a 3.2MP camera, with GPS and WIFI onboard.

Depending where you are in the world, WIFI wasn’t built into the Curve from last year also there was only a 2MP camera onboard.

Other than that, it’s supposedly a tad thinner this time around but it’s still blighted by lack of 3G connectivity.

Currently it’s being rolled out from 4.95 Euros, on a 2-year contract and 359 Euros SIM free.

We’ll bring you more info when we know more info to be passed along as info to you.
