Research In Motion announced today the release of the Blackberry Curve 8900 (formerly the BlackBerry Javelin) in Canada on the Rogers Wireless network.Â Most notable about this phone is that it is the thinnest and lightest full QWERTY phone ever released by RIM, measuring 109mm x 60mm x 13.5mm and 110 grams.Â The technical highlights include quad-band EDGE support with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, a 512 MHz processor and a 480 x 360 high-resolution display.Â The most noticeable omission was 3G support.
The phone also features a 3.2 MP digial camera with video recording and flash and built-in GPS.Â With instant messaging capabilities and a Facebook app as well as DataViz Documents To Go, RIM is clearly hoping to cater to young social networkers as well as the usual business clientele.Â The 8900 will support MicroSD/SDHC cards up to 16gb and also features an enhanced web browser.
The phone is available today on Rogers Wireless with prices starting at $179.99 with activation and 3 year voice and data plan with minimum combined monthly service fee of $45 per month.Â No details given yet on when the 8900 will make it to US carriers.
