    BlackBerry Gemini 9300 information, specs : Boy Genius Report

    Is this the Curve 3? Sounds pretty cool, but not much better than the 8900

    I think that this is definitely better than the 8900 especially if it had both gps and wifi... That would be the best bb period.

    I don't like its appearance. It kind of has a cheap look

    like I posted on the front page... curve form factor with Bold like specs... could this REALLY be the so called "Niagara", instead of a "Gemini"

    It's pretty sick isn't this just the 3G version of the 8900?

    If verizon gave me the bold in a curve body, my only question would be "how fast can you take my money?"

    no.
    not at all.
    and definitely not.
    Niagara is CDMA with a Bold/8830-like keyboard, model number 9030.
    According to BGR, Gemini is GSM with a Curve-like keyboard, model number 9300.
    I'm not sure the two could be any more DIFFERENT



    I don't have a whole lot to add to this discussion (especially after CX's comment) other than:
    When are we going to start hearing about BlackBerrys with LTE chips?

    you could be right... the same way RIM released a 8300, 8320, and an 8330.They may be doing the same with "this" device...

    but I'm taking what BGR said with a grain of salt, since the 8830 also had sim/gsm capabilities. And there have been rumours floating around that the replacement for that device, the CDMA bold will have almost a 8900 form factor.

    they start gsm. then most get get to cdma. its a mixed blessing because by the time cdma gets them most of the kinks are worked out (plus generally get a slightly beefier version, e.g. verizon curve v att curve).

    frankly i would rather wait and get the niagara with a better camera than 2 mp like the bold.

    CX, hows the niagara coming along?

    Exactly, me too. I'd seriously switch to VZW for that.

    On the other hand, which carrier/s are going to get the 9300 Gemini?

    I think this just adds more to CX saying before BGR is more wrong than they are right..

    Yeah most CDMA phones are better when they come out, instead of the GSM phones. Like you said the Verizon Curve vs. the AT&T Curve. Verizon Curve came out with a higher OS I believe.

    Also I don't think CX will speak of anything about unreleased phones. Since everyone was bugging him about betas and a lot of other stuff.

    Just thought I would add this link up. This guy had some of the physical specs before BGR came out. Talking about all silver.

    Here's a post from Horizon Wireless Online on there...But i have seen it, its silver, plastic around screen is chrome, and the two buttons to the right of the ball, and to the left are bigger like on the bold.

    Which is why ATT probably won't release the 8900
