Just when you thought your mouth couldn’t water anymore! Kevin over at CrackBerry got his hands-on the pre-release BlackBerry Niagara 9630. Kevin is no stranger to the unreleased devices and now its time for him to dig into this hot berry code-named Niagara. Apparently the overall hardware on this prototype model is very good! Unlike previous models he has tested the Niagara feels quite solid its the software (OS) thats the issue so far. The model Kevin tested out was running OS 188.8.131.52 which means its a very early version so he can only review the hardware and design.
All I can say is the Niagara which I’m sure will soon be part of the Bold series will fit in perfect between the 8830 World Edition and the Storm. The 9630 will be the CDMA users call for a BlackBerry Bold or even Javelin/Curve 8900. Here is a blurp about the 9630’s form from the review:
In hand, the BlackBerry 9630 feels awesome. For all those who say the Curve 8900 is too small or that the Bold is too big, you’re going to find this device to feel just right. As you can tell from the photos, the Curve 8900 is definitely the smaller device, which means the 9630 isn’t quite as pocket-able (but it’s still small). It also seems to be a hair thicker than the 8900. There’s definitely a different and distinct feeling when holding the 9630 as opposed to the 8900. I think I like the feel of the 8900 a little bit better personally, but am sure many will prefer the feeling of the 9630.
Anyways I recommend you check out Kevin’s full hands-on review of the BlackBerry 9630 >
