No more Tour, BlackBerry 9650 is a Bold move from RIM
Just the other day, we reported that Verizon's version of the BlackBerry Tour follow-up, the 9650, was going to include "Push-To-Talk" (for an extra $5 per month, of course). What we didn't know was if the device was going to be called the Tour2 or the Bold 9650. According to a Crackberry reader who found the 9650 User Guide in the leaked OS, the phone will be called the Bold 9650. This also might give us a clue as to what RIM will call the mysterious slider phone that we have been showing you pictures of. Unlike the Storm or the underperforming Tour, the BlackBerry Bold has received very good reviews and in the consumer's mind, the Bold name is synonymous with an outstanding BlackBerry model. The Bold 9700 also has been well reviewed. The 9650 will upgrade the first gen Tour by including Wi-Fi and replaces the trackball with an optical trackpad. We could see this baby launch as soon as May.
