BlackBerry 9630 leaked

Research in Motion's Niagara smartphone has been revealed as the BlackBerry 9630, according to an alleged leak. If confirmed the phone should be only the second 9000-series BlackBerry to enter production, following the Bold. The 9630 is said to be a CDMA device, and a cosmetic hybrid of the Bold and the Curve 8900. While using the flattened keys of the Bold, the size, borders and display of the 9630 are closer in nature to the 8900.

While little else is known about the device, the leak suggests that Niagara is not the straightforward CDMA adaptation of the 8900 that was previously rumored. Earlier sources also suggested that the phone would debut on Canada's Bell network in Spring, and possibly remove Wi-Fi in order to force EVDO use. More information on the 9630 is promised to come soon.
