The BlackBerry Bold follows up the Tour on Sprint and likely Verizon too in the coming months. The Bold is Sprint's high end RIM smartphone that improves a few things from the Tour including the addition of WiFi, an optical trackpad and double the RAM. The Bold runs OS 5 and it has GSM world roaming capabilities in addition to CDMA on Sprint with 3G EV-DO Rev. A.
The Bold 9650 is available on Sprint now for $199 with contract after rebates. If you haven't kicked the Crackberry habit, then the BlackBerry 9650 is an attractive proposition (especially if you didn't bite and pick up a Tour). But if you aren't addicted to the 'Berry or work doesn't require that you carry one, RIM's latest has a hard time looking sexier than the HTC EVO 4G and even that messaging maven the Palm Pre.
