    Any info on new Tour 2?

    Advertisement



    I have had a BlackBerry Curve 8330 for a little over a year now and am itching to upgrade. I just received an e-mail message from Verizon Wirless that I can upgrade any phone for whatever the lowest promotional pricing is. Of course, you have to extend your contract but due to our location Verizon is our only real choice anyway.

    I have researched the current Tour 9630 and it looks OK, a bit concerned about the large number of trackball issues that users have experienced. While reading reviews of the 9630 on several sites I couldn't help but notice that word is out that the Tour 2 is close. Looks to me like they replaced the trackball with a touchpad thing?

    Anyway, would appreciate any info you folks might have: is it worth waiting for, and what is the anticipated release date on the big V system?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have any info on it but I'll follow along to see if you get any good feedback. You and I are about in the same position: 8330, ready to upgrade when the right new device comes along. Good luck to both of us. BTW, I think the new trackpad is getting good press from its users so that may be a big plus.

    Yeah, the trackpad alone is worth the upgrade.

    I have the first Tour and I haven't experienced any trackball issues so far. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    The Tour2 should be coming soon. We don't know exactly, but the signs are good, for example the SKU number for the dummy units has appeared in the VZW system already, and last week a RIM tweet slipped out announcing the device. It should be coming soon. I would say anywhere from now up till early march as a guesstimate.

    Don't expect a Tour 2 anytime soon. The device that was rumored to be the Tour 2 has been re-branded to a Bold device.

    Yes, now it's looking like April/May/June timeframe.

    Since the 9650 has been released and "sent back for updates" I'm not sure I'll be 1st in line to get one when it IS released. I think I'll be waiting for the early reports/reviews to see how well it works. I suppose it's a good thing that it was sent back, though, if it wasn't ready to go.

    Generally speaking, I don't think the carriers tell their reps ANYTHING about when a new device is coming out. I guess they don't want to leak it - it would take about an hour (if that long) for it spread across the country if they did.
