Tiny Improvements Add Up in BlackBerry Tour

 

A faster processor and updated OS give the Tour an edge over many other smartphones. But in practice the device is a little shaky.

BlackBerry Tour 9630 (Sprint)

 

Both Sprint and Verizon Wireless made its customers very happy when they announced the July 12 release of the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630. However, when it came to launch time, Sprint didn't quite deliver on its promise, as customers were met with...

The RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 boasts world-roaming capabilities as well as Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The smartphone features a high-resolution display and an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard. Sprint offers a number of services for the...

The BlackBerry Tour doesn't offer Wi-Fi. You can't save downloaded applications to a memory card

Despite the lack of Wi-Fi, the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 is a feature-rich and well-performing smartphone that will serve Sprint's globe-trotting customers well.

BlackBerry Tour 9630

 

Targeting the business professional always on the go, whether it's across the ocean or across town, Canada-based Research In Motion released the first global 3G BlackBerry into the wild. Sharing design features with last year's Bold and Storm, the Tour...

Rock-solid e-mail ; fast web browsing ; outstanding battery life ; numerous high-quality free apps

Heavy ; trackball has tendency to stick ; no Wi-Fi ; slow startup ; low quality speaker for music

The Tour offers the best BlackBerry experience on the Verizon network to date.

RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 (Sprint)

 

The Research in Motion BlackBerry Tour ($100 with a two-year Sprint service contract) fulfills the wish of Sprint BlackBerry fans who've waited a long time for a new CDMA BlackBerry device. The Tour melds the best of the BlackBerry Bold and the...

Bright, crisp display ; Well-designed keyboard

Mediocre camera ; No Wi-Fi

The BlackBerry Tour entices with an ergonomic keyboard and gorgeous display, but the omission of Wi-Fi disappoints.

Verizon BlackBerry Tour 9630 review

 

It's here, folks. The BlackBerry Tour has been unboxed, and now that we've had a few days to mess around with it, we're able to tell you how we truly and deeply feel. There have been countless leaks and unofficial reviews circulating for the past ...

BlackBerry Tour 9630 without camera (Verizon Wireless)

 

Long awaited, the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 has finally arrived in town, and it's putting on quite a show. As the replacement to the RIM BlackBerry 8830 World Edition, the Tour offers 3G world roaming capabilities and brings a number of improvements in...

The RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 offers world-roaming capabilities as well as Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The smartphone offers a great design that combines a sharp display and an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard in a fairly compact size

The smartphone lacks Wi-Fi. The Web browser falls short of the competition, and there's a bit of shutter lag on the camera. You can't save applications to a media card

With a winning design and fast performance, the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 is one of Verizon Wireless' top smartphones for both business users and messaging fanatics.

BlackBerry Tour (Verizon Wireless) Review

 

The BlackBerry Tour is easily the best smart phone on Verizon Wireless, and we actually prefer it's compact design to the beefier BlackBerry Bold. We would have liked integrated Wi-Fi, and perhaps access to V Cast TV, but overall the Tour is a winner....

Attractive, sturdy design, Comfortable keyboard, Bright, sharp display, Excellent call quality, Good 3.2-MP camera

No integrated Wi-Fi, Mediocre video recording

RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 (Sprint)

 

That's not saying the BlackBerry Tour isn't fun. It's as much fun as a BlackBerry gets, with excellent music and video players; it just never really lets its hair down in the interface department. That will actually come as a relief to BlackBerry...

Solid build. Very good call quality. Excellent keyboard. Beautiful screen. World phone

BlackBerry Web browser still needs help. Sprint's music store should be avoided. No Wi-Fi ; Watch the BlackBerry Tour 360 video review

The BlackBerry Tour for Sprint is an excellent, no-nonsense smartphone.

RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 for Sprint Review

 

A few weeks ago we took a look at the Verizon Tour, and both major CDMA carriers launched the device on July 12th. By and large the two devices are the same. Both software versions clock in at 4.7, the styling is nearly identical ...
