I know many people out there have been dying to get their hands-on the next generation version of the BlackBerry Tour 9630. Since we first saw this device leak (months ago) it has gone through several name changes (internally). At one point it was thought that the next-gen Tour 9630 (aka Essex) would be simply called Tour2 or Tour 9650, however some new rumors have arrived that RIM might be looking at making this new device part of the Bold family. If this happens it the 9650 will become the first CDMA smartphone in the Bold series, and sport a similar design to the current Tour 9630 smartphone. In case you aren’t aware the Tour 9650/Essex/Bold 9650 will sport a very familiar design to the current Tour 9630, however will add RIM’s new standard trackpad, as well Wi-Fi. We will follow up with more details when they arrive… Also if you would like to check out some great photos of this unreleased device head over to BGR.
So what do you think? Should RIM continue going with the Tour series for the next model, or should RIM switch over the Bold family, making it the Bold 9650?
