(Rumor) BlackBerry Tour hitting Verizon in July

Comments

BlackBerry Niagara

The BlackBerry Niagara, now called the BlackBerry Tour, is rumored to hit Verizon in July. Pricing is expected to be $199 with a 2 year contract as well.

If this device is going to be announced at WES, it would be a considerable wait from announcement to release. Keep in mind that delays are always expected and mid-July to August is just as likely.

In any case, if you’re on Verizon, get ready for a sweet device launch this summer!

BlackBerry 9630 Niagara now called BlackBerry Tour 9630

Comments

The BlackBerry Niagara 9630 now has an official name and it’s the BlackBerry Tour 9630. The device is likely to be promoted alongside the U2 360 Tour which RIM is sponsoring.

The leaks come from a BGR tipster who says the device is to be released in early summer. Also of note, the Web addresses BlackBerry9630.com and BlackBerryTour.com are not only tied to the same IP address, they were both registered on the same day.

What do you think of the new name?

(Rumor) BlackBerry Niagara 9630 to be announced tonight

12 Comments

BlackBerry Niagara

T3 is a tech magazine that is reporting that RIM and T-Mobile are “holding a mystery joint event tonight” where the BlackBerry Niagara 9630 will be announced. It could be true that the event will demo the phone to certain parties and give them a first look, but I doubt it will be a public announcement. It would make more sense for RIM to announce the device at a conference such as WES 2009.

BlackBerry Niagara 9630 spotted on Niagara Street

Comments

BlackBerry Niagara

The BlackBerry Niagara 9630 has been spotted on none other than Niagara street. The photos taken of this device are great. Normally when these pics hit the internet, they’re of really poor quality and don’t really show you what the device looks like. In these pics, we get a really good look at the device and I’m loving it.

(Rumor) AT&T BlackBerry Curve 8900, Niagara 9630, BES 5 at WES 2009

Comments

OSC RIM 20090205 TOPIX

BGR is spreading rumors again and since they’re usually pretty accurate in hindsight, I’ll repost. During WES 2009 (May 5 to 7 in Orlando, Florida), there are a few rumors we can expect to possibly come to fruition.

The first rumor surrounds the launch of the AT&T 8900 Curve. This rumor is backed by the fact that AT&T has pushed out the service books for the device, which is usually an indication of a coming launch.

Also expect the announcement of the BlackBerry Niagara 9630. The device, as seen in CB’s recent video and impressions post, is a slick looking device with dual-band 1xRTT/EV-DO from the CDMA side, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and a 2100MHz band of UMTS/HSDPA from the GSM side. The device is expected to launch in Canada late May/early June with a Verizon launch some time around June/July.

We may also see BES 5.0 get just about ready to be released. Along with this announcement, we may also see RIM come clean about OS 5.0, even though the Internet has already gotten its hands on it.

The final two rumors are sketchy but we can all hope they’ll come true. RIM might be showcasing an LTE BlackBerry device at WES. The device will likely not be available for trial, but will just be there to show that RIM is working on such a device. Nonetheless, it will be great to get confirmation that this is in the works.

Last but not least, it seems RIM might announce they’re working on a device with a 1 GHz processor. The device wouldn’t be available for 9-12 months, but it would surely be a hot item for both consumer and enterprise.

(Rumor) BlackBerry Niagara 9630 to launch on Verizon

Comments

According to recent rumors, the BlackBerry 9630 will be ready for Verizon soon. The CDMA carrier should have the device as early as May. Pricing and other details remain vague, though the existing 8330 sells for $170 before special discounts.

The Niagara is a sweet looking device and depending on release dates, might actually help Verizon gain a few subscribers.

Would you switch carriers for a device as nice as the 9630?

Video of the BlackBerry Niagara 9630

Comments

Got the word from IM that the CBForums have video of the BlackBerry Niagara 9630. The video is of pretty terrible quality and looks a little like it was filmed with a cameraphone. I noticed a slight difference when I pressed the HQ button on YouTube, but it’s not as satisfying as you’d like. Whenever these videos are uploaded, they need to go on Blip or Vimeo, because they can serve up much higher quality video. In any case, the device is running OS 4.7.1.10 and it’s very buggy. The phone still looks great!

CB has posted another pic of the BlackBerry Niagara. This time the device is turned on so you can see a few of the icons as well as it makes the pic a little better. The BlackBerry Niagara 9630 is shaping up to be one of the nicest looking devices in RIM’s product line.
