9650 gets optical trackpad, faster CPU

BlackBerry's upcoming Tour2 handset, also known as the 9650 or Essex, has surfaced in the wild. BGR claims the physical size and overall appearance of the new model closely matches the original Tour. The most significant external change is the new optical trackpad, which reportedly works as it should and is expected to alleviate the problems users reported with the previous trackball design.

The revamped Tour integrates a faster processor than its predecessor, allegedly the same component utilized in the Storm2. The change is claimed to mitigate the lag time experienced with the previous Tour. Wi-Fi has been added to the new version and reportedly works as it should.

The Tour2 is expected to launch with Verizon sometime in the near future, although pricing remains unknown.
