Verizon’s BlackBerry Niagara 9630 confirmed for a May release?

Far from being RIM’s best kept secret, BlackBerry Niagara 9630 has appeared in several leaked photos until now, and even in a blurry video.

About one month ago, some rumors said the new smartphone would be introduced by Verizon Wireless sometime in May 2009, and it looks like this will indeed happen.

According to The Street, “analysts familiar with the plan” have confirmed the May release, although an exact launch date and a price are still not known.

The 9630 would come to replace Verizon’s BlackBerry Curve 8330, which is currently offered by the giant CDMA carrier for as low as $99.

It’s said the BlackBerry Niagara 9630 has both CDMA and GSM connectivity, so it may be launched in Europe too, via Vodafone (the global mobile operator that owns %45 of Verizon).
