The Boygeniusreport Blog just posted some information on what’s to be called the BlackBerry 9630 “Niagara”. The phone will definitely be a Verizon World Edition with support for CDMA 1x, EV-DO Rev. A, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and UMTS, though we’d bet the UMTS band is going to be 2100MHz only. The last of the big news won’t surprise any Verizon-haters, but this bad beast is not going to have Wi-Fi.
- The OS actually we’re told is 4.7.1 (but possibly, possibly, be OS 5.0 depending on launch date).
- No Wi-Fi.
- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support along with WCDMA support (bands not specified, but most likely 2100MHz).
- CDMA 1x/EV-DO Rev. A device.
- Release date unknown, but we’d say May/June if we had to bet.
- 3.2 megapixel camera (though we heard a rumor there might be a camera-less version, but that’s unconfirmed).
