Boy Genius Report posted a video walkthrough of the BlackBerry 9630 (Niagra). The BlackBerry Niagra is a CDMA device similar to the BlackBerry Bold so Verizon, Sprint and other CDMA users should be excited. Dates aren’t official but there is speculation that it will hit Verizon in May.
Leaked slides of the Verizon BlackBerry Storm have been all over the net this week. Specs have been confirmed and it looks like the BlackBerry Storm will pack a CDMA / EV-DO Rev. A, quadband EDGE, and 2100MHz HSPA. The touchscreen is a made up of a 3.25-inch 480 x 360 display which is suppose to be a notch above the Bold’s screen. The touchscreen will offer features like tactile feedback and auto-rotation. Other features in the BB Storm will be a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash, 1GB of onboard memory with microSD expansion( rumor is an 8GB is included in the box), a top notch browser, GPS, and visual voicemail.

New leaked pictures of the BlackBerry Javelin, have been passed around the net yesterday. I figured I post this, because their seems to be a lot more updates on the BlackBerry Bold & BlackBerry Javelin.
My last post on the BlackBerry Bold I stated, “The Blackberry Bold will hit AT&T in July for $300, T-Mobile in September for $350, and Verizon and Sprint also in September for $300 all with a 2 year contract.” well things have changed since then. Right now, it’s looking like the BlackBerry Bold will be released more like mid August to early September. As far as, the BlackBerry Javelin, look out for it to be released sometime after the BlackBerry Bold.
The BlackBerry Javelin is one of the newer series of BlackBerry’s set to release this summer. It’s very similar to the BlackBerry Bold with a few minor exceptions. The BlackBerry Javelin will have an outstanding set of features packed in it’s slim casing. The Javelin will have Wi-Fi and GPS but unfortunately no 3G. Other upgrades will be Javelin will a slightly better camera aiming at 3.2 megapixels, bigger display, and more spaced out keys.
The Blackberry Javelin is suppose to be an alternative to the Blackberry Bold. It’s stated to be the “cheaper version” due to the lack of 3G. Many sources have claimed The Blackberry Bold it will hit AT&T in July for $300, T-Mobile in September for $350, and Verizon and Sprint also in September for $300 all with a 2 year contract. So look out for it to be a little bit cheaper than the prices above.
