8900 Curve Officially Announced By T-Mobile For February

ishot-3 Surprise surprise. T-Mobile has officially announced the 8900 Curve (aka Javelin) to be released sometime in February. I am just hoping that the February 11th rumor pans out! The BoyGenius seems to already caught one spotted in a store. Nothing really else new other than the fact that it comes in Titanium and supports T-Mobiles UMA @Home service.

  1. My 8320 as amazing as it has been has finally met its match.

  2. Finally! Woohoo!

  3. No 3G no deal for my AT&T

  4. That’s good news! Now I hope telus will get there hands on this one?
    Hopefully it will come in different colours too.
    I what the red one it looks nice on the old curve.

  5. I heard it has a micro USB connector. That’s a no go for me. 🙁

    • You’d avoid getting a phone because it has a micro USB? Why? BTW, the micro USB is the wave of the near future.

      • Because every connector I, my family, my friends and in every place I need to charge my unit or connect it to get files from it is mini USB. I don’t see any advantage of having micro USB in this case and being the wave of the future doesn’t make it useful per se.
