Blackberry Javelin Smartphone Details Leaked To The Net

Research in Motion appears to be firing on all its proverbial cylinders; after Touchscreen Thunder, Bold and Clamshelled Kickstart, details of a new smartphone called Javelin have appeared on a fan site.

Crackberry has reported on what appears to be an update to the popular Blackberry curve complete with some tasty high resolution pictures.

As for the specifications, there's a 512MHz CPU, 256MB onboard flash memory, microSD slot to accommodate up to 8GB SDHC cards (possibly more), 480x360 pixel, half VGA display complete with lens/LCD screen.

The Javelin also packs a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus but without Flash and there's a micro USB port for syncing and charging purposes.

Connectivity wise, there's no 3G although you will find both WiFi and GPS; the lack of 3G is a major stumbling block especially since the competition (including RIM's own bold) will be 3G aware.

A January 2009 date has apparently been earmarked for a release although nothing is set is stone and the specs could be changed depending on how well/bad the competition is faring.
