BlackBerry Tour 9630 review

 

Unfortunately, like the BlackBerry Storm, the BlackBerry Tour 9630 lacks Wi-Fi, a disappointing omission for a business-focused device.

The BlackBerry Tour 9630 delivers exactly what users expect from a BlackBerry: an excellent keyboard; a slick design; and a hearty, messaging-friendly operating system. But the lack of Wi-Fi is at this point seems unforgivable in a business-class...

Verizon Wireless BlackBerry Tour 9630 review

 

We review the BlackBerry Tour, Verizon's latest 3G BlackBerry phone

Class-leading hardware keyboard ; Global roaming thanks to integrated GSM antenna ; Best email in the business, hands down

No Wi-Fi ; Uses the old trackball instead of RIM's new optical trackpad ; Aging BlackBerry OS needs some spicing up

As of today, the BlackBerry Tour is arguably the best BlackBerry ever to be released by Verizon Wireless. Beyond that, it is undoubtedly Verizon's most impressive messaging phone at this point in time. Seasoned BlackBerry users will love it and...

RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630

 

The BlackBerry Tour 9630 delivers the best of the Bold and of the Curve 8900, but it lacks one vital feature: Wi-Fi.

Bright and crisp display, well-designed keyboard

No Wi-Fi, mediocre camera

Review: RIM Blackberry Tour 9630

 

A faster processor and updated OS give the Tour an edge over many other smartphones. But in practice the device is a little shaky.

Superb multimedia playback on music, video and pics. Extremely bright and colorful screen was still easy to see in direct sunlight. RIM makes it dead simple to hook up the phone to receive your e-mail, Twitter and Facebook updates

Call quality is sub-par. Some screen lag when we started using the phone, but it eventually stopped. Teeny tiny browser fonts gave us migraines

BlackBerry Tour 9630 (Sprint) review:

 

Editors' note: The RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 for Sprint is largely similar to Verizon's version of the smartphone in terms of design and features. For this review, we highlight the different features and performance of the Sprint model. For more details...

The RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 boasts world-roaming capabilities as well as Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The smartphone features a high-resolution display and an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard. Sprint offers a number of services for the...

The BlackBerry Tour doesn't offer Wi-Fi. You can't save downloaded applications to a memory card.

Despite the lack of Wi-Fi, the RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 is a feature-rich and well-performing smartphone that will serve Sprint's globe-trotting customers well.

RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630 (Sprint)

 

The Research in Motion BlackBerry Tour ($100 with a two-year Sprint service contract) fulfills the wish of Sprint BlackBerry fans who've waited a long time for a new CDMA BlackBerry device. The Tour melds the best of the BlackBerry Bold and the...

Bright, crisp display ; Well-designed keyboard

Mediocre camera ; No Wi-Fi

The BlackBerry Tour entices with an ergonomic keyboard and gorgeous display, but the omission of Wi-Fi disappoints.
