    Hi Y'all,

    Has anyone heard, if and when, the BB NIAGARA is going to be released by RIM?

    Is May/09 of Q2 still the latest info? And will it be coming to Verizon, Bell Mobility, and/or Telus? Thanks.

    That's the 9220. This is just a CDMA Bold.

    I want the Curve 8900 so bad, but I'm a loyal Verizon customer. I hope it comes sooner!

    I'm thinking of switching from Verizon to Tmobile for this, and I would save money and be able to tether to my computer for free I think

    Pretty sure that the Niagara is the hybrid device. It's supposed to be smaller than the bold, larger than the 8900, and have 8900/storm styling.

    One month is usually how long it takes Sprint to get a RIM device after Verizon does (unless it's an exclusive.)

    From what I've heard (from a reliable source), the Bold 9030 "Niagara" is just going to be a CDMA variant of the 9000 with a couple of extras (wifi, global roaming). It might vary in color or the led might be in a different spot, but it's gonna pretty much look the same as the Bold 9000.

    No, 9030 will be the hybrid between 9000 and 8900. It will be smaller than Bold with the same size screen and (I'm pretty sure) same processor. There are already plenty of threads on this...

    Any idea on if the Niagara will be released on the telus network? We seem to get shafted alot. We dont have the bold or the curve 8900.

    Take a look at the Crackberry and Boy Genius Report blogs. They pretty much say the Niagara will be "bold-like" and talk about the "hybridity" of the Niagara.

    I was told "with confidentiality" (lol) by a Telus rep in early February that Telus would be getting the Niagara "sometime in March". Hopefully that is true. In the meantime, I constantly struggle with "should I get an 8330 now to tide me over, or wait for the Niagara"? I could probably handle the wait if March is the real date. But if it is April or May... grrr!

    The Niagara will be the closest thing a CDMA carrier will have to a Bold. It will have the styling of the 8900 and the Storm, but will be bigger, closer to the size of the Bold. One thing to be especially excited about for those on VZW is that it will indeed have wifi and 3G. Projected release is end Q1 2009, with Verizon rumored to be landing it first.

    I have a pearl right now and even if it is April or May I would wait if I was you, I am waiting patiently for this phone. Cant wait.
