Aries is CDMA version of Curve 8520

Will likely be called the Curve 8530

Those BlackBerry fans in North America on CDMA will surely be pleased to learn that CDMA carriers will also be getting a CDMA version of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 which was previously known as the Gemini. While we don’t have official confirmation on which carriers will be offering it, our sources suggest that it will likely hit North America on Sprint and Telus first, but Verizon might not be out just yet. If Verizon were to add the Aries, they would have all of the latest BlackBerry CDMA offerings, which would give them a significant advantage over Sprint.

From the whispers we hear it will come to market as the BlackBerry Curve 8530 which does follow the naming conventions that RIM has been sticking to as of late. As for the device itself, the specifications are the same as the Curve 8520 (or Gemini, if you prefer) with the exception of the fact that it offers CDMA.

Don’t be surprised if you see the Aries only being offered in some sort of a “BlackBerry-in-a box” pre-pay program that the carriers are looking to make more popular. Like the Gemini, the Aries is built upon a lower-cost platform and its target market is to play in the lower-cost segment.
