BlackBerry Tour2 9650 Hands On

“What could be better than the original BlackBerry Tour? Well, the BlackBerry Tour2 obviously. We’ve just got a hold of one and will be putting it through our normal thorough review processes, but in the meantime, here are some first impressions:

  • Physical size is nearly, if not identical to the original BlackBerry Tour
  • The trackpad works great, just as you’d expect
  • We guessed the original Tour was slightly underpowered, and we were right. Fortunately the Tour2 seems to use the processor found in the Storm2, and that’s a welcome improvement.

  • The keyboard remains at greatness status
  • Wi-Fi works like any other BlackBerry” Read more here:
