February 11 launch date for T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8900?

Reports say that T-Mobile will launch the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 on February 11.


Monday seems to be the day for BlackBerry rumors. First it was the BlackBerry Bold for Sprint and now the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 for T-Mobile. The folks at TmoNews believe T-Mobile, which is in serious need of a BlackBerry update, will release the new BlackBerry Curve 8900 on February 11 and posted some specs of the smartphone.

The Curve 8900, also known by its code name, the BlackBerry Javelin, features a sleeker design, a full QWERTY keyboard, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, integrated GPS, a 512MHz processor, and a 2.4-inch, 480x360 pixel resolution display.

The question on everyone's mind seems to be what "high-speed Internet" refers to on the data sheet. 3G? Wi-Fi? And is there UMA support?

While there are varying opinions and reports on the wireless options, we do know that the Curve 8900 has passed FCC tests, so we're hoping the February 11 date is right because we sure are looking forward to getting our hands on this device soon.
