We know it's not really much to go on, but any news that puts the words "Verizon" and "BlackBerry Tour" together in a sentence is good enough for some, right? The good folks over at Engadget were given a little tip that by visiting http://vzw.com/tour, you will automatically be redirected to http://estore.vzwshop.com/bbtour - which of course is Verizon's online shop for purchasing devices.

While nothing is set up there currently, the fact that it even redirects to that page is enough on it's own.  It almost acknowledges that the Tour will be hitting Verizon (and seemingly soon) if they are getting weblinks ready. Exciting times, stay tuned folks!

Sadly, file not found, it starts to open and then you get shot down

This cannot come soon enough

I can't wait until Verizon gets to Oklahoma, this Alltel switch needs to hurry.

from what i was told (and everyone uses: from a reliable resource) the tour will be a verizon exclusive and that it should be hitting around july, but we will see

Meh, I was all up on the Tour, still am, but I am going with the iPhone 3G s instead

Must have been a developers test! Seems to be down now.

The links are working. There was never anything at the links. The point is the first link http://vzw.com/tour actually redirects to http://estore.vzwshop.com/bbtour instead of just giving a simple page can not be found error.

lastraid

click on both links and got error 404, wonder if they pulled the link. they may have posted it for testing purposes and pulled it.

Can someone tell me what is so special about this phone? does it have more features than my BB Storm?

Hand_O_Death

Actally, I would also like to see a comparison stat sheet if anyone has it.
I believe the Proc and Radio are the same but the memory for Apps is doubled, and you dont have the 1GB built in, but memory cards are cheap anyways.

the one and only M

exciting stuff. let's hope soon is VERY soon.

Links were probably getting a lot of hits and VZW took them down.

bigbri_theboss

for this why not just get the bold? this phone is just a smaller version. it doesn't even have the optical trackball like the 8520 or whatever it is. i don't think this phone is worth buying, upgrading to, or switching carriers for. as long as the bold is out, this phone will be at the bottom of the "new blackberry phone" list.

ThatAnonymousGuy

Sure, I wouldn't mind the Bold. You are forgetting one simple fact.....

Ready?.....

It's on AT&T.

Hawleywood

Bottom of the list? Pull your head out! This is gonna be a great seller for VZW and I cant wait!

This device can not come soon enough. I love my Storm, but I am so over it. The replacement that I got just yesterday wont even charge (and there is nothing wrong with the charging port). It was a BRAND NEW replacement and not a refurb. I digress.... *sighs*

This phone IS a big deal for Verizon 8830 Users that don't want to go to the storm because of the lack of a physical keyboard and are VERY tired of the 8830's smaller internal memory. My internal memory on my 8830 is so full that I have to restart 1-2 times every day. Also, I am so ready to have a camera in my blackberry!

The links aren't supposed to work, if you look at your browser it's the fact that it's redirecting to the site. There's no actual page up yet, but they are obviously getting ready because of the redirect. For instance, if you're using Firefox and you hit the link, and look on the bottom left, you can see it redirecting.

Somebody please let me know when something better than the BOLD drops, until then these are all dumbed down versions of the same phone, every last one of them. Each one has a little tiny thing the other doesn't thus giving it a different model name and eveyone gets excited. If you're willing to swtich carriers for this when it comes out, just switch to AT&T now and get a BOLD and be done with it and wait until something better comes along. If you're on VZW, then this is good news, other than that, who cares?

When I see all these new phones and there are so many now I can't even keep up with the codenames, I ask "is it better the the BOLD?" If not...NEXT!!!

imboguss

Every one of those other phones has something for me that the Bold doesn't........A SIGNAL!
No AT&T service within a mile of my house.

Hand_O_Death

Thank You. Not everyone likes AT&T, so yes if you have ATT then great stay with the bold. but all my friends and family have VZW, which then it is free for me to call them, AND I like it when my phone actually gets a SIGNAL.
so enough with the "Bold is better crap" since not all of us have ATT. yes it is a Bold without WiFi (which I would have liked btw) but it is better than the other BBs that VZW has so enough with the hate please.

I'm tempted to switch to the Tour because I'm this close to throwing my Storm against a wall.

TMFoughty

It doesn't help if you throw the Storm against the wall. You get the replacement and the same sh!t happens as the first one... Trust me, I know.... :-)

kidqwik

It's like that old dog you drop off a few blocks away and then comes back to your house, right? :-b

Ru1ner

Damn... I wasn't in b4 404. :(

MBab62

I have to admit my storm has gotten alot better since the software upgrade but I'm so done with not having a physical keyboard! This thing cant come out soon enough!

GreatSave31

Remember, its the "Carrier With More Bars!" Ya right...............I'm sorry, I crack myself up everytime I say that. "More Bars!'Go ahead and stay with the Bold.

jengee777

This link takes you to verizonwireless.com/bbtour http://lnk.ms/0GrLM

striggity

lol @ people claiming this is a dumbed down "Bold". I wish people who didn't know what they were talking about would just shut up.

chelseytx

very cool! its coming!

jrod3055

server error 404 - when you click on either one of the links. It appears it has been moved or something.

Maloneyyy

This is another good thing for all of us waiting for the Tour. I am counting the days down till this phone drops. I have been waiting for a new Blackberry with physical keypad to come out for some time that was worth it.

To everyone saying they are getting an error: Yes we know you are, everyone is and always has been. The point is that if you look at the web address you are clicking on, then look at the address bar on your internet broweser, you will notice they are different. That means you have been redirected to another page, something that does not happen if link lead to nowhere. The fact that you ARE getting redirected means that a website is being prepaired for the BB Tour by Verizon Wireless.

del bobo

look like they took down the page...c'mon Tour

darkmoon66

there was never a page up to begin with, that isn't what this post is about.
