HOWEVER...*news flash* it turns out the Bell-Canada copy of BlackBerry Unite will work even if you are on another Carrier. Sweet! I just...

Clearing Up The BlackBerry Javelin and Niagara Confusion

Clearing Up The BlackBerry Javelin and Niagara Confusion

Seems as though there was confusion surrounding the BlackBerry 9000 and it's lack of 3G-ness. Code names were being thrown out, one 'Javelin' and the other of course 'Niagara'. BGR has learned that the Niagara model is the EV-DO device scheduled to hit Verizon in May of 2009. Seems like a long ways away for info leaks to be coming out about it? At any rate, here are some specs on the Niagara...
