Vodafone BlackBerry Tour2 Availability Rumored Leaked Image Hints to a BlackBerry Tour2 Release Date on Verizon, Soon
a CelleBrite device that mentions it along with the likes of the
BlackBerry Bold and the Storm 2. Previously known as BlackBerry Essex or
the BlackBerry 9650 (which we already covered last year just before
Christmas), the smartphone is expected to debut soon on Verizon Wireless
as the leaked image comes from a source renowned for knowing the ins and
outs around Big Red.
Although we have absolutely no idea what soon means in days, weeks or
months, what we know is that the BlackBerry Tour2 adds an optical
trackpad , Wi-Fi connectivity and a presumably snappier processor
(nothing confirmed on that one yet) to the original Tour that used to
boast a 3.2-megapixel camera and a 2.4-inch display (borrowed from the
8900) that does 480×360 resolutions.
For those wondering, CellBrite can be used as a collaborative POS system
to transferr contacts from one phone to another — one that quite a
few carriers have in their invetory.
No word on how expensive the BlackBerry Tour2 it's going to be, but you
can make sure we'll be all over it when there's something to write about.
