BlackBerry 9630 leaked in real life photos

Photos of RIM's forthcoming 9630, codenamed the "Niagara", have been leaked online.

Live shots of the new smartphone show that it is Curve 8900-like but with a Bold-esque keyboard.

Said to be a "World Edition" model, connectivity comes in with GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSPA and CDMA 1xRTT/EV-DO Rev A.

There's also said to be GPS and 3.2-megapixel camera but no Wi-Fi.

Supposedly to launch on Verizon Wireless in the States "soon", we'll keep you posted.
