Two new CDMA/EVDO offerings for next year

Now that RIM has pushed the latest round of BlackBerry offerings out the door for this year, attention will now turn to what they have in the works for next year. We have been able to uncover that the CDMA/EVDO roadmap will include at least two new offerings, which will be codenamed Niagara and Apex.

Niagara will be first to see the light, as it is slated for release sometime during the first half of 2009. It will be clearly focused toward enterprise class customers that are currently using CMDA/EVDO BlackBerry devices. The phone is said to really be a successor to the 8830 World Edition that will feature styling queues from the BlackBerry Storm.

The highlights of Niagara will be the larger high resolution display with a 3.2 megapixel camera and is rumored to be running BlackBerry OS 5. It is slated to also support EVDO Rev A and to also include WiFi support.

The Apex is really nothing more than a CDMA/EVDO version of the Kickstart flip phone, which is now known as the Pearl 8220 that was rolled out earlier this year. Details on the exact specifications are still a bit sketchy, but we suspect that the specifications will be very similar to the 8220 except that it will be sporting CDMA/EVDO.

There's also talk about a mid-2009 launch of a new BlackBerry called the Jupiter, which our sources claim is the CMDA/EVDO version of the Javelin that we will see launched in the first quarter of 2009 for the GSM market space. According to our sources the Jupiter will use a bit larger battery and will feature EVDO Rev. 0 support.
