RIM BlackBerry Tour 2 9650 found in Verizon's system
With the BlackBerry Tour on Verizon readily available for some time now, Big Red may be giving the green lights to the latest Tour – the BlackBerry Tour 2 9650. Verizon has probably given the BlackBerry Tour 9630 enough face time for its life cycle – especially with all the issues around the trackball. Now there are dummy SKUs coming up in Verizon’s computer system which indicates a good sign that it’ll be ready to launch in the near future. Having launched a couple of RIM handsets that have been aimed to replace older models, such as the Curve 8530 and the Storm 2 9550, it’s only fitting for the latest Tour to show up its face so soon. Already ticking away on borrowed time, it’ll only be a matter of time before the BlackBerry Tour 2 9650 makes its official appearance.

Not me. Same old opersating system. A track pad and wifi are nice, but we've been looking at the ui for a couple of years now. Time for an overhual RIM.

If this is the same as the Bold 9700 it's a good upgrade. I have a few friends with the Bold 9700 and the Tour 1 doesn't even compare. As for upgrades, what do you want to see changed? I'm perfectly happy with the new Blackberry OS on the Bold 9700.

Girlfriend has the 9700. So when looking at the UI, I think its time for a better browsing experience. The 9700 web browser is noticably behind just about every major manufacturer to release a smartphone this past year. As business user, a good web interface on a mobile device is becoming more and more neccessary. Also, how about a faster processor, more memory, and more openess (not sure if that's a word) with the software to run a wider variety of apps. Just my opinion, but I don't think man can live by email alone anymore. Others have caught up to or close to RIM's sole claim to fame. I just think a more modern user experience would be nice. That's all.
