BlackBerry Curve II?

One of Research in Motion's upcoming BlackBerry phones, previously known as the Javelin, is to become the Curve II, a report claims. The phone is now expected to premiere "soon" through T-Mobile, possibly as soon as November, although other sources indicate a launch in the first quarter of 2009. Specifications have also allegedly been obtained, and include BlackBerry OS 4.6.1 running on a 512MHz processor, with 256MB of built-in storage. Memory is expandable through a microSD slot found under the battery door.

Other features may include a 480x360 display, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with auto-focus. The phone is also cosmetically similar to the BlackBerry Bold, with redesigned buttons, but differs in use of a glass cover over the camera and flash. The Curve II additionally lacks 3G connectivity, but does incorporate GPS reception and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.
