BlackBerry Bold 9650 in the flesh gets handled

BlackBerry Bold 9650 in the flesh gets handled
At this point in the game, there was little doubt that the BlackBerry Bold 9650 was on its way, but it has yet to have been photographed. Finally, there are some leaked images of the device that clearly wants to differentiate itself from its predecessor; the BlackBerry Tour 9630. Everything about this handset screams what was already seen with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 – almost exactly alike in design. The About Screen offers up some insights as to which carrier might be getting this handset – obviously, we've heard news that it was bound for Verizon and Sprint who carry the current Tour. The QWERTY keyboard is intact and now follows through with the optical trackpad that'll no doubt be less of an issue when compared to the headaches apparently witnessed with the Tour's trackball. With the Bold re-branding, RIM is probably keeping the 96xx name for CDMA phones while the 97xx with be kept for GSM devices. Finally, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 will feature the much beloved Wi-Fi that was lacking on the Tour and OpenGL support.
