Verizon to launch the Tour in July and the Palm Pre in early 2010?

Verizon to launch the Tour in July and the Palm Pre in early 2010?
The last time we bothered you about the much-rumored BlackBerry Tour was when we informed the smartphone was to come out in mid-August. However, another of our tipsters claims now the Tour may become available about a month earlier - sometime around July 13. The reason for his statement is that sales consultants have been e-mailed and asked whether they would want to carry the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 or the Tour, starting on the above-mentioned date. What’s more, our source also informs that e-mails about the Palm Pre have been sent as well. Similarly to what we’ve previously heard, it seems the Pre will launch on the carrier at the beginning of next year.

Meanwhile, Lowell McAdam, Verizon CEO, has said that customers of the carrier will be able to enjoy devices like the Palm Pre, the BlackBerry Tour and Storm 2 “over the next six months or so”.
