BBerry Tour July 13 Likely
RIM's BlackBerry Tour has received a more definitive launch window courtesy of multiple leaks. Even as sources for BGR have the smartphone shipping the week of July 13th, Verizon insider Kevin Byrne says that the Tour will be ready on July 13th itself. Prices are still believed to sit at $199 with a two-year plan.
The Tour is the first modern non-touch CDMA BlackBerry and should have the Curve 8900's 480x360 screen and basic form factor but the Bold's keyboard as well as 3G through EVDO and GPS. Its existence is helping to bring both the Curve 8900 to AT&T as well as a likely Bold price cut at AT&T that would put it on par with the Tour.
