Sprint announces BlackBerry Tour
      #33482 - 06/16/09 09:44 AM

Surprise for those who thought that Verizon would announce the BlackBerry Tour first. Sprint has just announced that they'll offer the Tour 9630 "later this summer" for $199 with a 2 year contract.

The Tour has EVDO Rev.A and runs on Sprint's network. It also has a quad band GSM radio and 3G HSDPA on the 2100MHz band for International roaming on GSM networks.

Like the Bold and Curve 8900, it has a 480 x 360 color display, trackball, full QWERTY keyboard and a camera. The Tour has a 3.2MP camera, GPS and a 3.5mm stereo headset jack.

It comes pre-loaded with the Sprint Music Store, Sprint TV, Sprint NFL Mobile Live and NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile.


You can sign up for notifications about the Tour on Sprint here: www.sprint.com/tour
