New BlackBerry Javelin Pic - Comparison Shot

New BlackBerry Javelin Pic!
By Kevin Michaluk on 14 Aug 2008 09:22 am EDT

A new (slightly blurry) photo of the BlackBerry Javelin has popped up on the net (via HoFo ), this time with the device neatly sandwiched between a BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry 8800. We recently brought you some Javelin presentation shots , which showed off many of the features and functions coming in RIM's replacement to the Curve, but this images shows you just show small and sleek the device really is compared to the current generation of BB Full Qwertys.

As excited as I am to get my BlackBerry Bold, I can't get over just how "good" the Javelin specs and device are looking. Sure the Bold is packing 3G and a slightly faster processor, but after that the Javelin pretty much wins in every respect: bigger display, smaller form factor, better camera, more room for apps... it is TIGHT. If you live outside of 3G coverage or find yourself with access WiFi the majority of your day, it's looking like the Javelin vs. Bold decision may not be that difficult to make.

New BlackBerry Javelin Pic - Comparison Shot


Nice but I still like my Curve. Looks too much like the Bold, nice if you like that. I think the silver color makes the Curve stand out more.

Your curve will be slower than the Javelin or Bold. The Curve has just been outdated and played out by now. I'm sure within a few months they'll have more colors avaialable if black isn't you prefered color. I was going to buy a curve a few months ago, but after I found out the Javelin and bold are coming out soon, why not wait?

I think it looks fantastic, small & sexy (where's the virgin ad girl when you need her). Looks like this will be a perfect sized BB for those who want a smaller phone but also the full qwerty.

Bold is out of my head now all I have to decide is between the Javelin & the Thunder-storm-cloud-rain (or whatever it'll be called) :)

EDIT : I see this one has the red keys....has the green keys gone for good then ? :(

I wonder how well the battery life of the Javelin stacks up to the Bold....

If I was standing in AT&T right now- deciding between the two-

The Battery Life would be the deal breaker

I doubt you'll be ABLE to stand in a ATT store with one in each hand. Perhaps never? The way device "exclusives" seem to be going these days (despite how much WE users hate them), we know ATT is getting the Bold and TMO is getting the Javelin, but there's no real indication yet that ATT will get Javelin or TMO will get Bold.

As someone who lives in a 3G area (nyc), and a current curve user, i think i am still going with the javelin. the keyboard is the deal breaker, everything else is secondary, and having 3G isnt that high of a priority. at home and in the office, i have wi-fi at my disposal, and the rest of the time, EDGE should get the job done. just have to wait and see how long after the bold this is released.

All this news is killing me...i need to know the release before i go steal one of these from style

We haven't heard about it for a while, but is the Niagra going to be the Javelin CDMA version with 3G equivilent EV-DO? This phone is definitely the best looking of all (Javelin, Bold, Thunder)! I just wish they could pack the Bold's processor and more internal flash memory (as in more GBs)!

The Javelin is getting more attractive by the post. I like that it's smaller and I think it will be perfect for me. I also think I'm in the minority here, but 3G isn't a high priority for me. I'm happy with the speed I have now. My curve is fast enough to check CNN, my livejournal, etc. So I think I will be a happy girl when/if I can get my hands on the Javelin.

After ALLLLL this talk back and forth, which phone is going to Verizon... Bold or Javelin? I mean I keep see'ing that the 3G symbol is on the Bold, which leads me to think the Jave- is goin Verizon? But the comments say otherwise.

PS- I think this is my first post? I was a lurker for awhile haha!

The lack of DivX-XviD support on this device annoys be, their seems to be no consistency in the BB OS when it comes to that..Why does the Bold have it...but not the javelin, I can't see it being an hardware issue in this case.
