Early info about the Verizon-bound BlackBerry 8230 Niagara


You didn’t think Verizon was going to let the craptacular BlackBerry Storm stay around as VZW’s top BlackBerry, did ya? Hells no. The upcoming 8230 Niagara should take that spot when it drops in May according to our and BGR’s source. It seems that the 8230 is going to be a cross between the Bold and Curve 8900 with the physical size coming in between as well. If the rumored specs are true, this BlackBerry will be killer.

We’ve got:

  • 480×360 screen resolution
  • EV-DO Rev A
  • aGPS
  • 3.2MP camera (with flash?)
  • Qualcomm MSM7600 624 MHz CPU
  • 4.7 Operating system

As soon as a firm release date and price drops in our tips box, we’ll pass it along.
