Fresh BlackBerry Javelin pictures reveal microUSB slot?

BlackBerry Javelin

There’s not much new to the latest pictures of the unreleased BlackBerry Javelin, aside from a look under the hood, but it’s still good to see the girl in action. These shots are accompanied by a healthy dose of speculation that it will be supporting micro USB slot rather than the mini USB connector we all know and love. Considering the Javelin is aiming to be as sleek and fit as possible, I could understand the desire to squeeze it down a notch, but it’s still a pain for accessory providers. I actually used the same cord for my BlackBerry as I did for my MP3 player for awhile, which was especially handy, but for your everyday user, just using the prepackaged cable shouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience.

    It’s a STUPID decision on RIM’s behalf, and just shows how little they care about the end user any more. mini-USB has become almost a defacto standard for wireless devices and accessories (at least here in the USA). How many Bluetooth devices can you buy that are micro-USB??? Having to go back to toting around two chargers is stupid RIM.
