Kevin's BlackBerry Javelin 8900 Review
Here's the forum thread to go with the review of the BlackBerry 8900, codenamed Javelin, that I posted in the blogs. I'll update this post with links to other related posts as they go up (video and follow-up review to come).

How do you start a poll? I think it would be fun to see how many think Kevin is the one that dropped 17k for the one on eBay. Nice review. Any idea when the next Kickstart update will be out?Life motto’s

Well, since Kevin has a copy that he did not have to pay 17k for, I will guess that units are getting handed out for review? Which can only mean that soon the Javelin shall be mine! Great review, Kevin! Those comparison pics say a lot! Will be curious to know how the Auto Focus is doing timing wise (takes a a couple seconds to set before snapping?). But, I'm ready for my Jav when it's ready for me!Gregerator here = Lombaki on Twitter.

Kevin - Thanks for the unbiased review. I'm still thinking about getting one whenever it's available and ends up on ebay.From the head MOFO in charge:

Kevin, great job on the review. Now you know that I am all ready to go buy the BOLD on release day but if I knew At&t would get the Javelin for sure and get is soon, I may reconsider on what my next device would be. I like the idea of 3G on the BOLD but I like the 256 MB and smaller size of the Jav.

Very nice review... I hope to see one for myself shortly after they come out... providing they come out before Christmas.

I almost choked when I saw there was a review. I've been checking all my usual tech sites for javelin news several times a day, daily for weeks. This device needs to at least be officially announced, and soon, because I'm sure my friends and family are sick of hearing about it from me by now. Drool.

Good review. I want to see more on the camera.
Crucial... it's a given with Rogers, lol. They are beasts with the amount of phones they get. K850i is one I wanted as a back-up. Too bad the robbers robbed it.
