BlackBerry Essex 1st Leak

An anticipated BlackBerry Tour with Wi-Fi gained more support Monday with a leak of its name. Although no model number exists in the CrackBerry description, the Essex is likely to be a straightforward upgrade of the current smartphone with at most mild hardware updates. The current model melds elements of the Bold and Curve 8900 and is a world phone meant for CDMA networks but with GSM support for other areas.

Release information is also vague, but Sprint has already publicly acknowledged that a phone matching the Essex's traits should ship next year. Verizon and Canada's two major CDMA carriers, Bell and Telus, are also expected to pick up the new version shortly after its public debut.
