BlackBerry Tour 9630 

PhoneArena.com snagged this image of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 listed in Verizon's internal system.  It doesn't give us much information, but it is definitely a step in the right direction for CDMA users and it's a solid piece of "visual evidence" that the 9630 will be called the Tour, in case you were still believing otherwise. It beats the 9630 SKU that showed up in the Telus system that's for sure.  No release date just yet, but hopefully it will still be out on or around the July 13th rumor we heard last week.

This can't come soon enough.

Obviously with the storm 2 pics as featured post...this one got pushed down quick... I'm a little shocked more people haven't commented on this, it's already 15 minutes old!

As said, step in the right direction.

Can't wait to get my hands on one of these!!!!!!

The storm 2 and this to verizon?? Wow- I feel special!

funkybrother

that is not VZW... notice BELL Gift Card listed.....

archpopoy

good catch! YAY for Canada

xkbrosnihan

What proof is there that this IS VZW? I see no VZW indication on the screen... + Bell Gift Card.

It's just a description to differentiate the cards, its a holiday gift card with a bell on it.

i was in a meeting where they presented this device on their upcoming schedule.

remipmc

they were still calling it Niagra, but said the buzz around the office was the name would change since it sounded too much like viagra

Way to pick out the Bell Gift Card. It took me twice to see it, but its there......no verizon just yet.

archpopoy

I'm actually surprised that Bell doesn't get some preferential treatment being a fellow Canadian company. Even if it means only a few days/weeks earlier than VZWs launch.

On a side note though, Bell definitely did a better job than VZW on following up with the majorly-failed OS upgrades to Storm 1. What's VZW on now .75 1/2 and Bell's on .122?

Our corporate FY ends June 2009 and we need to replace our handhelds. Almost everyone wants this BB, but if we dont know anything by first week of june we have to buy about 500 crappy Palm centros on Sprint to get the PO in by the end of June. I wish I knew why VZ doesnt provide at least some information.

it has been pointed out that there is a bell gift card line item in the forums ---

is this actually a verizon or is this a bell screen

xplode

That is not the Verizon inventory. clearly shows "bell gift card"...

Does the "NC" on item ID indicate "No Camera"? That would be so frakkin' awesome. It would be the answer a whole bunch of us lookin' to move on from the 8703 and 8830 have been looking for. Since I can't have a camera, I have been stuck in "old" devices for a while, envious of all the complaints about OS updates. Look at the 8830 for example, just did get the official upgrade a short while back.
No Camera = Good News for lots of us government and corporate users!

Doesn't the DUM in front of the description mean it is a dummy phone?? When I was a VoiceStream (I know it's now TMo, but when I worked there it was still VStream), all of our Dummy phones had that coding either in the description or the part number

xplode

This will be in a Camera and non camera version. ;)

The "Bell" is a holiday gift card with the picture of christmas bells on it

vandebe

the bell gift card is actually a gift card, that had bells on it.

its the VZW inventory system. I was lookin at it earlier for new moto phones.

xz06deuce

This will def. be my next phone. Storm 1 is getting put on the shelf..

Stang68

The number of the phone shows "9630". The "30" means Verizon...always has always will. BELL would have a different number. Come on, guys. VZW employees are saying that the BELL GIFT CARD thing we are seeing is a literal Gift Card with Bells on it.

Anonymous1234234

What about the 8330 or the 8830 or the 8130? Yeah these are all Alltel phones. FAIL

funkybrother

30 is for all CDMA devices not only for VZW.

Anonymous500

yeah the bell on the nineth line is a giftcard that verizon wireless sells. along with all the other accesories on that list.

xplode

well im glad to see that its VZW's

Marko343

This looks like a great phone and hope VZW does in fact get it. I've realized with the Storm being my first touchscreen phone that I think after using my friend's curve's that a "traditional" BB would be better suited for me. Obviously gonna try it out first but Storm is gonna go on the Shelf cause I'm just tired of all the lagging.

It looks like the Tour is going to come in a camera and "non-camera" version. BB9630TR and BB9630TRNC (NC = no camera). Nice to know the 8830 will finally have a true successor for those customers that cannot have a camera attached to their BB.

ggonzalez105

The MOC sku is a mock up SKU, aka for the fake (dummy) versions. Those are mostly for kiosks or "high theft" locations as stores will put the real version on display. As for the "Bell" gift card, LoL, it really is an old holiday gift card that had bells on it. You guys are QUICK to jump on the little things, but sometimes, an easter egg is just that...an egg. Nothing more.

Storm 9530.I would like to reset entire phone to the beginning defaults, but i dont know how
