BlackBerry Niagara and BlackBerry Apex — CDMA BlackBerry Update!

Comments

CDMA BlackBerry users have a history of getting the short end of the stick: fewer and later devices, generally worse battery life… etc. Based upon what BlackBerry News is reporting, CDMA BlackBerry now users have a lot more than the BlackBerry Storm to be excited about — here comes the BlackBerry Niagara and the BlackBerry Apex.

First up the BlackBerry Apex, which will be a CDMA Rev. 0 version of the Kickstart or BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220. Look for this BlackBerry to come out in 2009.

Next up is the BlackBerry Niagara, which is a slightly more complicated pickle. BlackBerry News is stating that it is a CDMA Rev. A successor to the BlackBerry 8830 rather than the CDMA counterpart to the GSM BlackBerry Javelin, which is an upgraded version of the BlackBerry Curve. Confused yet? Instead, BlackBerry News claims that the CDMA Curve update will be codenamed ‘Jupiter‘ featuring EVDO Rev. 0.

However, a quick look at one of the slides released by the Boy Genius (seen after the jump) shows that RIM is still considering the BlackBerry Javelin and Niagara in the same breath. Hopefully we’ll be able to sort out this mess of BlackBerrys sooner or later.

    It’s definitely a nice looking phone. From the front it looks like a smaller Bold, and from the side it looks like the 8900 Curve. And with all of the pictures that have been surfacing I would say it shouldn’t be too long before it’s in stores. Any sure dates yet? can’t even it on http://www.Niagara-BlackBerry.com I hope it will come out sooner or later.
