BlackBerry Javelin meets up with Bold and Kickstart


BlackBerry Javelin, BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry Kickstart

It looks like the BlackBerry 8900 is really making the rounds these days, as separate sources have been able to provide some side-by-side shots of the upcoming Javelin against the BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve, and the BlackBerry Kickstart Pearl 8220. This is the first time that we’ve seen all three of RIM’s next-gen devices in one spot together, and I think will be a good indicator of what the BlackBerry web page will look like in the next couple of months. When the touchscreen BlackBerry Thunder Storm 9500 gets thrown into the mix, we’ll have four new classes total, but as is, these three will be replacing the old Pearl, Curve and 8800 lineups. What do you guys think? Are these three an honest evolution to RIM’s existing strategy? How well will the BlackBerry 9500 fit in?

The BlackBerry 8220 will be RIM’s first flip device, and will be due on Rogers for around $150 on a three-year plan (no word on T-Mobile’s pricing) sometime this September, while the BlackBerry Javelin (8900) should be coming a little bit later, around November or December. It doesn’t have the 3G that the Bold does, but will have a nicer camera, a slimmer profile and a screen that’s just as nice. If you can’t wait for the Kickstart, there’s one up on Ebay now…

    So, does anyone know when the Javelin might be coming out? It looks exactly like the bold but smaller? I might be interested in that!!! Any one know what the different is between them?

    The Javelin is supposed to come out near Christmas, but nothing has been officially confirmed yet. The major difference between javelin and the bold is that the javelin doesn’t have 3G, whereas the bold does. However, the javelin is smaller in size and has a better camera than the bold. Hope that helps :)

    I’ve been waiting so long for RIM to put out sumn thats not as slow as the others and i must say that i’m not disappointed at all. I think the Bold is great and the Javelin even better, i cant wait to replace my 8320 with the Javelin. The Kickstart however is not appealing to me at all, I just think its UGLY… the Pearl is a really nice looking phone in my opinion and for that ugly thing to replace it…. *vomits* . I’ve messed around with 1 and i wasnt really impressed… browsing on it is such a chore, whenever u load a page u have to zoom to be able to view it… i never bothered to check the options for keeping the browser at a prefered size… my main problem tho is that is ugly…

    Bold - great improvement… way to go RIM!!!
    Javelin - SIMPLY AWSOME!!!… can’t wait :D
    Kickstart - i think i said enough above
