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 has acquired AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
