The BlackBerry 9630 hasn't even hit the market yet, but streets are already being named after the device that grew up with the codename Niagara. I mean really, why else would there be a street named Niagara if not in honor of RIM's much-anticipated, next-generation, full physical qwerty CDMA BlackBerry? It is a marvel of the world after all. :-)

Slow day ah? I only wish I could have a NEW OS for my STORM!

Kevin Michaluk

HAHA. It's actually been more like a slow ten days now for BlackBerry news. Tends to happen in April (after CTIA and leading up to WES). RIM's big show is coming up early next month, so the news comes to a bit of a standstill as people save their announcements for then.

I still say they wanted to call it the Viagra... because they know it will give people with electro-phile dysfunction a woodie...

kbrosnihan

Someone James Bond into RIM and get us an update on when VZW Storm will get an actual OS worth toting the phone around for...

spoken like true poet mang

Rizzy09

mythai

o_ssie

hopefully RIM will ther will be a leak of a GSM 9600 or 9620 with the codename VIARGA lol

Brenden Donaher

Haha VIAGARA, thats great. The device will have to be blue though

I'm wondering which will be available first, Storm OS or the Niagra? Hope they're just adding more fixes for the Storm before they release the upgrade.

KOOLWATER

I dont want to upgrade to any bb that is smaller than my 8830, which I LOVE

cpuking2009

upgrade to a bigger brain?

paulanthonyc

Coulda done a better job with the screen protector on a brand new device. Get those bubbles out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

spangler07

Haha, that's the first thing I noticed too.

cpuking2009

Yoda? Yoda uses a Storm?

For some reason that back cover looks a lot better in these pictures compared to all of the other ones Ive seen.

spimoles

I was thinking the same exact thing. The other leaked pictures show a cheaper looking back. This one is gorgeous, great looking phone

bossdragon

enough with the pic's and stuff. Lets get a release date.

PhxBlue

Whats wrong with the screen? Screen protector on the fritz?

I dig your style Berry. With a special preference to your backside. Lol. I dig.

Mattman840

looks like they changed the battery cover. it used to look like carbon fiber surrounded by a piano black finish. now the whole thing is piano black. i like this new one better.

tnewton3

I will stick with my Bold but I will say the back does look super nice as opposed to the other ones I have seen in pics.

digix

want this in MY hands :)

zerohour

waiting for this phone!!!!

npunk42

What will I do after the Niagara is finally released. Nothing to hang on for, no more hope, emptiness, darkness.
I'll tell what I'm going to do really, I have 6 months before my contract with Verizon is up, I'm going to read about patches and problems, piss whine. THEN I'll buy it!

NeonLemmyKoopa

Maybe the street is named after the waterfall of the same name?

Kevin Michaluk

click the link in the article that says 'why else' ... :)

Brenden Donaher

Every time i see this device I want it more and more, I can't wait till it comes out. Im hoping the rumors are true and it will hit bell in May.

canlabman

So that's who was holding up a Blackberry as I was driving by in my travels today. Note to self, pay more attention to driving....I could have had an accident....LOL.

8300BerryNoob

where is this place? it looks so familiar.

Stang68

The device looks really good. The back looks much better than in previous photos. Hmm...I wonder if Mr. Kevin took these pictures as he strolled down the street :)

bllackkman

I hate Sprint!! I have been waiting patiently for this phone, not a drop of news

supermann423

i cant wait any longer :(

I need to upgrade my old LG enV. Niagara, come save/upgrade me!

wersch

I also live in Winnipeg as Kevin does..........and that picture is at the corner of Niagara Street and Academy Road.

Interesting enough, when you look at the map, look at the street to the East (to the right) "Waterloo"........Hmmmm, RIM headquarters is in Waterloo, Ontario.

Coincidence??? Or simply "double agent stuff"......

wersch

The map link didn't post very well here........grrrr.

cant wait for that phone!

Jaquers

For those of you who want to know, I think it's safe to say this photo was taken in the vicinity of 49°52'25 N, 97°11'08 W. Let the stalking begin! Jk, Kevin.

BTW, I live in MN, USA and have never been to Canada. How pathetic is that?

mike_p#CB

What are the chances of someone having a pre-release Niagra finding a Niagra St.? Where do yo guys find this stuff?

ral123

all these pictures are driving me nuts i want this phone so badly
i know im not the only one but still

australia

In Australia we even have a suburb named after the phone

drew4flt72

Just when you think you couldn't possibly love your 2 month old phone (Javelin) any more, out comes the damn Niagara!! Thanks RIM for confirming whatever you've already got, RIM's got something better.

Mohammed Momeen

Is this the upgrade to the javelin? If so, what have they upgraded?

Michael Hepples

He's on the corner of Academy and Niagara here in Winnipeg. Here's a follow up to it, the next street over is Waterloo. Coincidence? :)

wersch

...........come on Mike..............that was posted yesterday at 20:15...........chuckle, keep up !!

lauranelli

can't wait for this device!!! Being so patient!! LOL!!

~~Steph~~

Is this device going to be for Sprint?

gregerator

That picture was taken with a Jav. :)

beri

That phone is so sexy, i cant wait for it to drop

Sandra De Freitas

WOW! This is exciting news. I currently own the 8830, which I LOVE but I lost the "z"/"7" button last August. I love the Bold too, but I've been waiting for the newest bb to arrive and the day looks to be around the corner! So exciting! Whew whooooo!

Do we know which provider will be carrying it in Canada?
