BlackBerry 9630 Niagara heading to Verizon as a World Edition?
We hear that the BlackBerry Niagara is not heading as the 9030 like we originally heard, but instead will be making its way to Verizon as the 9630 World Edition. That means the device will support CDMA 1x, EV-DO Rev. A, GSM, and UMTS. About the only radio missing is one for Wi-Fi which is not surprising considering the carrier. What is interesting is that it looks like this handset could be carrying OS version 4.7.1, or possibly even 5.0 depending on availability date. While there was talk about another version of this handset without a camera, the Niagara is expected to be equipped with a 3.2MP shooter. and for those Storm owners who have problems with the browser supporting JavaScript, this phone's browser will support JavaScript 1.6. No word on pricing or an exact launch date, but with a physical Qwerty keyboard, a slightly higher OS build and possibly a better browser than the Storm, it looks like that some of the shortcomings that BlackBerry fans complained about with the first touchscreen 'Berry might be addressed with the Niagara.
