Sprint to release BlackBerry Bold 9650 on May 16th?
Most of the leaks and news involving the BlackBerry Bold 9650 seems to deal with the Verizon variant of the phone. However, there is a possibility that Sprint will be the first of the two carrier's to launch the sequel to the Tour 9630. A leaked photo of Sprint's newly updated hotlist shows the 9650 as having a release date of May 16th while Big Red has no confirmed launch date for the unit. The handset will have some improvements over the Tour by having Wi-Fi enabled on the device, offering an optical trackpad instead of the old school trackball, and coming out of the box with BlackBerry OS 5.0. For Sprint customers looking to upgrade their current Tour 9630, getting first crack at the new model would be welcome news, indeed.
