BB Tour replacement, the Essex, due at Verizon

The sequel to the BlackBerry Tour handset, codenamed the Essex, is soon due out at Verizon Wireless, as indicated by a photo showing the carrier's branding on the handset. The recently leaked photo gives little other indication of the features of the device, other than that it should be available in about a month's time or so. It is known that the handset will improve upon the Tour it replaces with an optical trackpad and a Wi-Fi connection.

The handset, also known as the 9650, otherwise carries over the features of the Tour, including its 3.2-megapixel camera with flash, Bluetooth 2.0 support, and access to the BlackBerry App World, among others. A microSDHC card slot will let users add up to 16GB of memory to the phone.

Pricing remains unknown. [via Salomondrin]
