    Okay I currently have an older blackberryn and looking to upgrade to a new one. My provider is TMO. They have a promotion now that I can get the blackberry curve for $50. But after reading online I see TMO is releasing another blackberry soon, the javelin. So my question anyone knows details on this one. Whether is has 3g, wifi?? I have seen pictures and it looks amazing.
    Not sure if I should just jump on the curve or wait until this new phone gets released. Opinions?

    All of you skeptics out there who doubted the February release of the BlackBerry Curve 8900 on T-Mobile can now rest easy as T-Mobile and RIM have made the official announcement. Very eagerly anticipated, perhaps more so than the G1 albeit a lot more quietly, the 8900 features OS 4.6.1, a 512 MHz processor, 480×360 display, GPS, and WiFi with HotSpot support. The new Curve is sure to help ease the pain of the lack of Bold love. If only this device had 3G in the 1700 MHz flavor. No definitive date or price has been set, but T-Mobile hopes to sell you all an 8900 sometime in February. Or you know, you can just, uh… start reading BGR a little more often.​
    Press release after the jump.
