Will the CDMA version of BlackBerry Bold hit Sprint shelves soon?

As we reported earlier, another variant of the Bold, the 9900 Pluto, is rumored to be heading to AT&T in this year's second quarter. The Pluto is expected to be a touchscreen version of the Bold with a physical QWERTY.
Whether it is a touchscreen Bold or a Storm with a slider and Wi-Fi, if all this talk comes to fruition, there could be a model to suit everyone in 2009. What do you want to see on a specific BlackBerry model?

A storm with a slide-out keyboard would be pretty amazing. But for me it's other things like a 5MP camera, and an app store. Oh, and Verizon, don't take wifi away, that's just not playing nice.

"Poor Sprint. They look to the left and see AT&T selling the BlackBerry Bold. Turn to the right, and the BlackBerry Storm is flying out Verizon's door." And if they look across the street they see Blackberry Pearl Flips at the T-Mobile store. At least they have that cool new iDEN Blackberry right?

there is little point to a wifi on a CDMA network. the data coverage is far far far superior to that of GSM networks, therefore the need for wifi is greatly diminished for most everyone, exept those few that want to hop on their home networks for whatever reason. wifi is a catch up device. that being said, i would love to see a touch screen BB w/ a qwerty. that would be my ideal phone. Getting the storm tommorow, but i am going to severely miss my voyager's keyboard.

If you want a slide out keyboard touch screen and wifi, go buy a HTC touch pro. you do realize blackberry doenst really wanna make a touch screen device, but they did because they were giving a big check for it.

also to be noted, this device could be bought full retail from sprint and unlocked on to vzw network, we just did 2 instinct, took about 2 weeks to get done completely, but with that open device policy, if it meets the specs, we can switch it over. I am certain the Bold will meet VZW specs.

I know I'm going to sound really stupid, but isn't the Niagara the CDMA version of the Curve 8900, not the Bold?
