BBerry Niagara to Verizon

RIM's BlackBerry 9630, nicknamed the Niagara, could be ready for Verizon soon, according to a rumor. Citing unnamed analysts, TheStreet claims the CDMA carrier will get the phone as early as May and should use it to replace the Curve 8330 that has handled mainstream QWERTY BlackBerry duties on Verizon for about a year. Pricing and other details remain vague, though the existing 8330 sells for $170 before special discounts.

The phone is a stylistic blend between the Bold and the Curve 8900 and has many of the features of the 8900, including its 3.2-megapixel camera and 480x360 display. It would drop Wi-Fi, which Verizon often has removed, but would have 3G over EVDO as well as GPS mapping. The 9630 would be the first modern, non-touch BlackBerry for Verizon.
