It seems the stateside BlackBerry faithful will have to wait until the new year to get their hands on the BlackBerry Curve 8900, also known as the BlackBerry Javelin.TmoNews, an unofficial T-Mobile news blog, has confirmed that the anticipated and updated Curve has a “hopeful” release date of Feb. 18. The device is expected to hit T-Mobile first. Already available in Canada and the U.K., the Curve 8900, which got the stamp of approval from the FCC here in November, is being called the high-end BlackBerry Bold 9000’s kid brother.

The quad-band Curve 8900 offers Edge support with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, a 512MHz next-generation processer, a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.4-inch, 480 x 360 high-resolution display. The Curve 8900 also marks the thinnest smartphone in BlackBerry’s 10-year history to offer a full QWERTY keyboard, just a hair over a half-inch thick. While the Curve 8900 lacks 3G support, it wraps in a 3.2-megapixel camera and BlackBerry OS version 4.6.
