    Just saw this over at BGR. He seems to think that this is a sign of the Niagara making its way into the Verizon lineup. Thoughts?

    I don't think it means anything. Like someone said on the comments; "...phones go out of stock all the time"

    A few months ago, the Pearl was impossible to find. For a good 2 months, you could not pick up a Pearl. Trying to send away for a replacement meant you had to wait atleast the 2 months. Now we have Pearls out the yin yang... Pretty sure it's the same thing that's happening now.

    Also doesn't the Niagara replace the 8830 in the CDMA lineup? The 8830 has been out and reached end of life(north of the border) for a while now....

    But hey here's hoping I'm wrong and we CDMA users get a new phone.... with buttons

    Just talked to a sprint rep and they said that they will have a new BB by the end of the month, but did not know which one?
    Could it be!!!!!

    Hmm, maybe maybe not. They say this phone is suppose to drop on Verizon in May.

    Or they could just ran out of stock like the other one said. But who would want that phone.

    But wait, isn't Verizon suppose to the new CDMA version Bold...
    Or is that the same phone? This is the one I'm confused on.

    Just remember... BGR is probably the most unreliable place to get info. Very rarely are they correct. Yes the Niagra is coming, but I dont think it will be that soon.

    Actually, this is one of the few times I agree with BGR. But don't blow "soon" out of proportion. Soon could mean a few different things.

    I hope it's true. I can't wait for a new phone. Don't get me wrong I love my Curve 8330, but want something different.

    CX that's a shocker, usually you say they have no idea what their talking about. ;p. But I wanna know what's with Verizon getting the Niagara when they just got a new one not that long ago? I don't think the Storm sales were bad.

    storm sales and niagara sales are 2 different targeted users. Sure there will be come overlap, but shouldn't be too much

    Oh okay. The "Niagara" isn't a touchscreen at least as far as I know, so that wouldn't appeal to the Storm owners. It all makes sense now.

    Am I the only one that finds it funny that there is a female aphrodesiac drink that is a play on the word Viagra called Niagra?

    Niagra: chick phone?

    I think they should skip on the Bold and go straight to whatever the new Curve model will be in their lineup.

    I hope VZW releases the CDMA Bold / 9030 / Niagra or whatever it's being called, soon. Maybe this is a sign. not getting my hopes up though

    Well, CX did agree with this. But he said don't think "soon" is really soon, it can mean a lot.

    Honestly I don't think VZW is getting a new BB soon. T-Mob just got the 8900, I just think it would be too soon. The only reason it went out of stock is because of the BOGO sale. I bet the pearl will go out too.

    I don't think, yeah the whole BOGO sale might of sped up the process, but I don't think that's the whole reason. And a few really reliable sources did say that the "Niagara" will come to Verizon.

    I think before we see the "Niagara" on VZW, we will see the pearl flip. I bet the new curve or bold will show up in april, at the soonest.

    Yeah we might actually see the new pearl flip, because of the spy photos of the Verizon branded flip. Test device? Also I don't think April. May or later.

    Exactly, we haven't had any real evidence of a new one, but we have had pics of a test device. They only reason I said maybe april is because VZW's lineup is getting kinda boring. But definately possible later.

    With the "Niagara" there really hasn't been an actual picture, we just seen that crappy picture where it looks maroon.

    The Niagara is def coming to verizon but i dont think that has anything to do with the 8330 being out of stock. Verizon has a BOGO sale going on so that most likely has something to do with it. I also thought the 9030 would be replacing the 8830, which to me is still an amazing device. But i highly doubt the 9030 will be coming anytime within the next 2 months, it will be slightly longer.

    I bet the pearl flip comes before the "bold" on verizon too. I was talking to a rep for about 2 hours and he slipped and mentioned he heard they will get the flip soon they just don't know when. My guess after the sale.
