    I know there are a bunch of you out there in the Crackberry nation that have an 8900 already in your hands and was wondering if any of the Curve 8300 series accessories fit it (skins, holsters, ect). The size and shape between the new and old seem to be very similar and was wondering if I could use some of my old stuff on a new one (hopefully soon!). Thanks

    Hate to break it to you. Even if the Javelin was compatible with the accessories of the Curve, the thinner, lighter, slimmer Javelin would just fall out of the skins or wouldn't feel that nice. The difference doesn't look like much but it's noticable.

    BlackBerry Curve 8300 series accessories are not compatible with Javelin 8900.

    Curve 8300 charging port - miniUSB
    Javelin 8900 charging port - microUSB

    Curve 8300 battery -- C-S2
    Javelin 8900 battery -- D-X1

    Battery doors, skins, charging pod are all different for Javelin 8900.

    Any idea when RIM is going to have holster available for the 8900. Lots of people in Canada now getting them and I can't even get a holster. I tried it in a 8300 holster and the slight dimension difference definitely made it a little lose.

    Blackberry and Crackberry have holsters, or at least some type of case for them... try using Google.

    It's a higher resolution, but the screen size is suppose to be the same, but I don't have one myself so I can not state that as a fact.... that was what I was told here on the forum.

    I'm using the OEM 8300 holster for the 8900 and it locks the phone when holstered with the screen facing in. Give it a try.
