Niagara falls, the new name for the 9630 is BlackBerry Tour?
BGR have a tipster who tells the BlackBerry 9630 is not the Niagara, but the BlackBerry Tour. In addition, it seems that RIM owns the domain names blackberrytour.com and blackberry9630.com, which we think confirms this rumor. The same person says to expect a summer release for the device which, as the Niagara, has managed to garner a fairly large buzz. The last time we reported on the 9630, we noted how some equity analysts were expecting the phone to be available on Verizon next month. The handset is expected to be equipped with 3G connectivity, a physical QWERTY keyboard, 3.2MP camera, improved HTML browser and the latest BlackBerry OS build. We still have no official carrier announcement, launch date or pricing info and the one thing that we thought we knew for sure might turn out wrong. No matter what the phone is called, it still has the nice looks that will keep the buzz going.

I agree. Just seemed to grow on me. Tour does not seem BB appropriate for some reason.

1. Niagra is a so much better name. (Like Gemini better, but you can't always get what you want.) 2. Judging from the model name of the 9630, any BB that ends in 30 ends up VZW. Such as the 8130 Pearl, 8330 Curve, 8830 World Edition, or 9530 Storm. A BB getting the 30 is like an LG getting the VX xx00.

Bad comparison because between 30 and VX because unlike VX, ALL CDMA CARRIERS that carry BlackBerries are xx30.

The reason for the name change is due in part that RIM is supporting U2 on their new world tour......

U2 are pieces of crap. Totally ripped off NIN's art design on their new album.

Curve is a great device, but I cannot wait for this to come out.
