RIM and Verizon postpone BlackBerry Aries 8530 to February?
With Apple's new iPhone 3GS and the Palm Pre released, and the new myTouch 3G on the way, now would have been a great time for RIM and Verizon to offer an updated version of the Curve. The BlackBerry Aries 8530 could be Big Red's version of the Curve 8520, also known as the Gemini, and was expected to be launched this September or October. A Wall Street analyst now hears that the release date won't be until February of next year. The Aries 8530 is expected to feature an optical trackball on a sleeker 'Berry design and yes, it will have Wi-Fi. While we now have to wait past the dropping of the ball in Times Square for that device, there still is the BlackBerry Tour to look forward to, expected at Verizon and Sprint next month.

It's about time Verizon allowing WiFi on Blackberry's. Between this phone and the storm 2, hopefully they'll decide to start offering WiFi calling.
