Verizon tidbits: Storm firmware saga continues, Niagara is the Tour, and more

Chris Ziegler

We're getting a few tasty little morsels seeping out of the Verizon camp this morning, and we just wanted to pass them along -- nothing Earth-shattering here, but Niagara fans are definitely going to want to learn a new term:

  • The BlackBerry 9630 Niagara will definitely be known as the Tour. (Boy Genius Report now has it pegged for July at $199, which certainly seems plausible.)
  • The next BlackBerry Storm firmware will be released in May (we're still expecting this to be 113 until we hear otherwise). Update: is circulating within the company now, so that might be our golden build!
  • The Voyager's replacement -- the VX11000 -- will be known as the enV Touch.
  • The carrier is "investigating" raising the 5GB cap on its data plan with the LTE rollout, since subscribers will presumably be consuming more.

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
