BlackBerry Tour2 9650 Surfaces Tour2 Essex Specs & Quick Review, Pricing & Availability Yet to be Confirmed
(also known as BlackBerry Essex) has just been spotted out by our good
friends from BGR, who have also done a quick review on it. At a first
glance the Tour2 is similar to the original BlackBerry Tour when it
comes to size and the overall appearance, but a more in depth look and
things are looking way better.
Speaking of better, the most significant exterior change is the new
optical trackpad that replaces the trackball — it works great,
just as you'd expect . Under the hood there's a snappier processor
borrowed from the Storm 2 that promises to take away the lag time
experienced with the previous Tour.
There's also Wi-Fi connectivity as the old Tour didn't have it and the
same amazing QWERTY keyboard that makes for a great addition when you
need to answer emails or send text messages.
BlackBerry Tour2 is expected to hit on Verizon early 2010 but there's
nothing official to confirm a release date or a price tag.
