Verizon to launch the BlackBerry Niagara, netbooks

It looks like Verizon’s line-up of smartphones will soon include not only the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230, but also the BlackBerry Niagara.

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.

    It's definitely a nice looking phone. From the front it looks like a smaller Bold, and from the side it looks like the 8900 Curve. And with all of the pictures that have been surfacing I would say it shouldn't be too long before it's in stores. Any sure dates yet? can't even it on http://www.Niagara-BlackBerry.com I hope it will come out sooner or later.
