BlackBerry 9630 Niagara is WiFi lacking Verizon World Phone

The Research In Motion BlackBerry 9630 Niagara smartphone reportedly a RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 and Blackberry Curve 8900 combination handset is expected to be on Verizon Wireless as a “World Phone” which means it will work of both GSM and CDMA for US and abroad.

Spec wise, the BlackBerry 9630 Niagara is CDMA-1X/EV-DO/Rev.A, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS, and features a 3.2 megapixel camera, BlackBerry handheld OS version 4.7.1, and enhanced BlackBerry Browser with support for JavaScript v1.6.

The one big problem with the BlackBerry 9630 Niagara is that those specifications don’t include WiFi, which seems to be the norm with Verizon as todate Verizon hasn’t offered a single BlackBerry smartphone that has WiFi aboard.

    Verizon will not offer a WIFI phone ever… if they did that then it would almost be pointless to offer internet at a 20$ – 40$ fee more on the blackberrys or any other verizon smartphone. Seeing as verizon knows many people use WIFI these days they would lose money putting a phone out that has WIFI.

    I have a samsung i760 and it has built in wifi. I use it all the time. So don’t say verizon wont over a wifi phone ever when this one has been out over a year now.
