Verizon to launch the BlackBerry Niagara, netbooks
Coming as a handset smaller than the Bold but larger than the Curve 8900, BlackBerry Niagara is said to feature stuff like EV-DO rev A connectivity, a 480 x 360 pixels display, A-GPS, a 3.2MP camera, BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 and BlackBerry OS 4.6. Plus, of course, a full QWERTY keyboard that no RIM smartphone is launched without.
BGR says that Niagara may hit the shelves in May, but there’s nothing official about this at the moment.
Another interesting piece of news about Verizon is that it will start selling netbooks. A 10-inch HP Mini should be the first to go on sale, sometime in May, for $99 with a 2-yr contract and a Broadband Access plan.
