Hands-On with BlackBerry Niagara 9630 (Video)


Aside from the BlackBerry Storm, the CDMA side of the equation is still lagging a little behind its GSM counterparts when it comes to offerings from Research in Motion. Fret not, though, because help is on the way very shortly.

On the GSM side, we’ve already seen the BlackBerry Bold 9000 and the BlackBerry Curve 8900. Now, we’re getting a great look at the upcoming BlackBerry 9630 Niagara through the provided video below. By and large, this is some sort of Bold-Curve hybrid for the CDMA crowd, giving you a Bold-like keyboard and that great black-and-red color scheme.

Running on OS, the model shown in the video below appears to be an early beta, as the previewer says that he’s been having some trouble with stability. The phone keeps rebooting itself for no real reason in particular, but we are offered a terrific glimpse into the physical features of the phone.

I know a certain someone in Lake County, California who will be very excited to watch the BlackBerry Niagara 960 hands-on video below. Looks like the Niagara could be ready for Sprint in Q3, so Verizon may get it around the same time.
