One of our tipsters has just let us know that the BlackBerry Tour features both a QWERTY keyboard and a touch-sensitive screen...

i went from the voyager to my storm and it was the best upgrade of my life...make sure you're comfortable with the blackberry interface. :-)

I agree with you fanman, I was a diehard lg fan for the longest but when the BB 8830 came out I decided to change and glad I did. I now have the storm and its the best upgrade I've made also. I think the problems people have been having with the storm are not the device its the interface. I'm more than interested in seeing what the Odin aka storm 2 will have to bring to the table.

Yes, the Tour is coming to verizon. There is no timetable yet for the release date; but it is SPECULATED for a July 13th release date. We will see...

The Tour is the 9630, not the 9030. Also, a spec sheet on this phone was already leaked from Bell with no mention of a touchscreen. So either Phone Arena totally got this story wrong... or they just got the Tour part wrong, and there's another Blackberry (9030) that has a touchscreen and physical keyboard/trackball. Now THAT would be interesting.

i dunno, looking at the picture on the spec sheet it does look like it has the suretouch screen.
