You can take this post as you see fit, we're just relaying the information here...  an anoymous tipster sent us in what they say is a screen print of the first SKU to show up in the Telus inventory system related to the BlackBerry 9630 (codenamed "Niagara", now thought to be going to market as the BlackBerry Tour 9630).  

The SKU isn't for the device though, rather it's for a BlackBerry 9630 accessory (I shrunk the image down slightly to fit the blogs). It's no surprise that the 9630 will be coming to Telus, but if the appearance of an accessory SKU can be taken as a sign that a device release is planned in the not-so distant future, then this would be very good news to many a Telus subscriber. We're not totally sure if that is the case... but certainly hope so!

Telus BlackBerry Tour 9630 Accessory SKU Appears


If theres accessories being listed then the Tour is coming soon to telus :)

I'm def going to upgrade from the Curve to get this, it looks so awesome

Probably won't buy it anyway already having my relatively new Storm, but as a matter of pride I like when the company I'm with is the first to release information - officially or unofficially - about a new device.

Very nice, will check out the Tour as soon as Telus gets it. Hopefully soon, I'm itching for something with bigger keys. Getting old sucks. :)

Well this is a bittersweet bit of news. I kept holding off on a blackberry until the new ones came out. Unfortunately my wife needed a new phone and I figured I might as well upgrade as well.

After talking to a couple of reps and the L&R group they all assured me that there wouldn't be a new BB any time soon. So of course we got the 8330 Curve (don't like most touch screens) only to have the 9630 coming just after my return period ends. :(

Still excited about the new phones, just can't justify out right buying two new phones right after buying the two we have.

Iam with telus and cannot wait for the Tour!!! I hope it comes soon!! I am wondering about price for it as I am nowhere near the end of my current contract and will have to pay full retail for it :( but it is time to upgrade from my BB pearl which has been probably the best phone I have ever owned!! and I am quite sure the Tour will not disappoint!!
