History of the BlackBerry Curve 8900
Following up on the commercial success of the original BlackBerry Curve two years earlier, the company released the Curve 8900 first on the T-Mobile network in February 2009, then on the AT&T network three months later. Better known as the Javelin, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 model was offered as a replacement for the original series and was followed by the lower-end 8520 model seven months later.
As the top offering in the series, the 8900 delivered a better design, higher quality features and faster performance. The phone was discontinued by T-Mobile in February 2010, while AT&T kept the 8900 in its inventory until June 2011.
BlackBerry Curve 8900 Features
Released as the replacement for the early 8300 series, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 debuted with a wide array of upgrades, while retaining some of the incredible features of the original models. Offered with a fresh metallic finish, the consumer-friendly phone had a sleeker, more tapered shell and was the thinnest full QWERTY BlackBerry ever made.
The device also included a faster processor for increased download speeds, an updated BlackBerry 4.6 operating system and expanded 256MB onboard flash memory and a 16GB micro card slot, as well as a full HTML Web browser that supported RSS feeds, streaming media and the recently released BlackBerry App World. The 8900 was also the first AT&T Curve model to adopt Wi-Fi technology, granting free access to nearly 20,000 hotspots, while the T-Mobile Wi-Fi capabilities offered access to HotSpot Home service, which converted the phone into a wireless modem.
Unlike previous generations, the 8900 was also equipped with GPS navigation and tracking and included an updated 3.2MP camera and video recorder. The pocket PC was preloaded with an upgraded DataViz Documents program that allowed editing of Microsoft Office attachments. A monthly subscription was required to create new documents.
