Best Buy will not reorder BlackBerry Tour 9630 as model goes out of stock
According to a Best Buy connected tipster for BGR, the big box retailer will not reorder inventory of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 as the model goes out osf stock. The reason is simple. The BlackBerry Tour2 9650, aka the Essex should be launching soon and unlike the 9630, this model is Wi-Fi enabled. The 9650 also replaces the trackball with the newer trackpad. And wjhile the 9630 is awaiting an upgrade to BlackBerry OS 5.0, the 9650 comes loaded with it already. So why would anyone in charge of inventory at Best Buy even waste a second's thought on the matter. As we previously reported, the Verizon version of the 9650 should be coming very soon while the Sprint version could be launched in the February-March time period.

I would not get a blackberry this year unless you really have to. They are going to release a bunch of handsets with subtle variances and upgrades...better things are going to happening with Android, iPhone, and Windows Mobile...keep your eyes on them. Blackberries are lame and overrated!

And I plan to buy a Blackberry this year. Freedom of choice is amazing.

Freedom of choice is amazing...there are plenty of great alternatives to blackberry products... The Microsoft Exchange set up is easier to maintain and more cost effective for businesses than Blackberry Exchange... Whoa, that's amazing too!! To each their own...

I've had a Storm for 9 months now, and plan on switching to either a Nexus One or iPhone if Verizon picks it up. I'm fine with the phone itself, but the lacking blackberry app world and ssslllooowww internet speed is driving me away from it. Yes, I know they're working on a proxy server fix, but I don't think it will add that much more speed...
