According to a Wall Street analyst, the release of the BlackBerry Aries 8530 for Verizon,
previously scheduled for September-October, has been delayed till
February 2010. The reason behind this is currently unknown. Maybe you
should just consider buying the BlackBerry Tour instead? It's set to be
released next month.
The updated Curve 8520 from Big Red, also known as the Gemini, is expected to feature an optical trackball on a sleeker 'Berry design and Wi-Fi support.
