Telus is next to launch the Tour; HTC Snap and Touch Pro2 both on the way
The BlackBerry Tour 9630 was released by Telus in Canada today, two days earlier than expected. Country mate Bell had already launched the device on the 11th, as previously reported. Verizon and Sprint followed that up by offering their version of the 9630 on Saturday. With all of that Tour-ing going on, Telus might have felt some competitive pressure not to wait too long to make their version available. The cost is $229.99 with a 3 year contract and $599.99 off contract.

At the same time, the carrier officially announced that the HTC Snap and HTC Touch Pro2 are "coming soon". Our best guess is that the former would be released on July 15th and the latter on July 21st, based on our prior story on Telus' launch dates for the pair.
