BlackBerry Tour to arrive in mid-August, while an e-mail mentions it and the Pre
We have received new info on the hot BlackBerry Tour from one of our tipsters. To start with, a sales rep in San Antonio, TX has hinted that the Tour should not be expected to hit the shelves anytime earlier than mid-August. Yesterday, another tipster made all our hopes run on high by saying the handset actually features both SurePress touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard. We guess we’ll know for sure by the end of the summer.

An interesting story has also reached our ears going the Tour and the Palm Pre were mentioned in a “Verizon only email”. An image said to have been found in the message clearly indicates that both handsets have been added in some 5 Star Referral Tool, with the purpose of the latter to capture consumer interest.
