We got some tips last night as to what it might possibly be, but nothing solid so anything said here is pretty much speculation and rumors. The known specs on this one are listed as being...

Verizon BlackBerry Tour 9630 On Its Way Out

Sad day for BlackBerry Tour owners. Alright, maybe not that sad since it means the BlackBerry Bold 9650 is moving in but it's still kind of odd to see a device reach EOL so early on a carrier.
