BlackBerry Niagara photos

With official specs and photos of the BlackBerry 9630 Niagara still some ways off, new live photos leaked over the weekend via CrackBerry shed some more light on the handset. Coming about a week after the orginal leaked photos, one of the new images reveals the backside of the handset, confirming it will run on a CDMA-based 3G network. The carbon fiber-like look of the battery door is likely only there because of a protective sticker.

Nothing else was weaned from the new photos, and the handset is expected to share the Curve 8900's 480x360 display, 3.2-megapixel camera and GPS but also lose the Wi-Fi connection to make customers use the providers' EVDO-based 3G networks. The Niagara is expected to make its debut on Canada's Bell provider sometime in the spring, though these are unconfirmed reports. Verizon and Sprint are also due to carry the handset, with the latter likely confirmed via today's roadmap leak.
