    Upcoming BlackBerry 9650 Possibly Delayed, Called Bold Instead Of Tour

    Advertisement



    http://www.rimarkable.com/upcoming-b...8RIMarkable%29

    "Word on the street is that the BlackBerry 9650 may be delayed because of software issues. The device might also be called the Bold as compared to the Tour.

    Some Verizon stores did get the 9650. They were sent back for “updates”. Verizon won’t release the 9650 until the official OS 5.0 arrives for the Tour 9630. The Sprint 9650’s are having WiFi issues and Sprint is working that out. And at the end of the email he states: “it won’t be called the Tour 2. It’s the Bold 9650.

    I wonder if the name Tour is being dropped because of all the issues with the trackball on the Tour 9630 whereas the reputation of the Bold is pretty solid?"

    That news is a little disappointing to me. The "Tour 2" was very likely my next upgrade. Now that I hear "problems" I'm a little put off and not likely to go for it. What now?

    I have to agree to an extent but mfgs can go name crazy too. Like eyecon82, I don't care what they call it as long as it comes out soon and isn't a dud!

    I concur j, but BB wise I'm waiting on the new Pearl.
    Now news, tomorrow I receive the N900 from a Nokia retailer for a trial. It will be with me for 15 days. Have an option to purchase, unlocked, at a 30% rebate.
    I will be posting my impressions...

    Well guys just to clarify there's no delay in something that has yet to be announced, so to say, there's never been an official release date established so no way to say has been delayed....

    I kind of agree the name "Bold" has been a good one for a solid reliable RIM device. Maybe they are going to build on that? IDK......

    I did not believe it until today when the major sites confirmed it! The Tour2 WILL be called the Bold 2 now.

    well, there are many sources who said it was supposed to come out in early february, so it looks like it was delayed.....especially when units where already shipped to verizon and sprint

    Sucks that there's going to be a name change... while I love my Tour, I feel peeved because it's as if RIM is discontinuing the Tour line.

    I think the tour was just released during U2's tour back when it first was released which kinda makes sense to discontinue the series
