Curve 8900 release date

The Blackberry Curve 8900 will be released on February 18th, 2009, alongside the Samsung Memoir handset with an 8MP camera, according to a Tuesday report. While this is not an official announcement from Blackberry manufacturer Research In Motion (RIM) and the source has not been revealed, the date is one week later than an earlier, allegedely leaked launch date of February 11th and narrows down a projected timeframe.

The Curve successor lacks the 3G of the Bold but matches it in other specs that include a 480x360 screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera and a built-in GPS receiver. In Canada, the Rogers version supports Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA), allowing users to make calls over the Internet using the Wi-Fi connection and to switch to the GSM radio when going out of range while still maintaining an active call.
