Sprint releasing BlackBerry Tour July 12 also like Verizon

The new Blackberry Tour is coming! It was going to be later in the summer but is now going to be with Sprint in the early part of summer, launching on the 12 July.

Sprint are in a race with Verizon to get this phone to market as soon as, for the price of $199.99 on contract after rebates. This new Tour 9630 is said to be the best looking CDMA Blackberry to date stopping the bold owners in their tracks. The Curve 8900 is still a cuter handset according to some although the 8900 lacks 3G.

The Blackberry Tour’s keyboard may be the best RIM’s ever crafted for a phone according to engadget mobile. If you would like to see the full review visit engadget where they are also showing a few images of the new Blackberry Tour.

    I’m 35, self-employed and have used Blackberries for 10 years, primarily for remote email while traveling throughout the world. It seems that the teenies, techies with time on their hands [and money in their pockets or credit cards?] and the like are now discovering BB and its being slanted to those groups who have no use for it other than peer pressure, music, silly texting, and annoyingly loud phone calls. For all the time that I’ve had my BB’s I’ve never paid more than $60/month for 1000 monthly minutes [of which I use about 15] and an unlimited data plan. The new users who could just as well do with an iPhone are causing the BB rates to skyrocket to over $100/month because of demand which is totally ridiculous. On the other hand the nice thing about BB’s is that the operating systems are constantly upgraded & the monthly plans are grandfathered so that I will keep paying what I am for a long time while watching the newbies move on to other new fads to keep their lips flapping and fingers typing. My Pearl 8100 will outlast them all.

    I agree with Dennis. I am a grown adult and just started using the BB because it is a much better phone than the Instinct and costs the same which brings me to my point. Kids should be using the Instincts and iPhones and leave the BBs to the adults. I would never buy my teenager a BB. Aside from that, my teen loves his new rant.

    Let’s find a way to get the BB plans down to a resonable price. 99.00 is way too much.
