Midnightdraven or some other angel, maybe you can clear this up for me. I'm on Verizon, and I've been following the release of the Tour, and now the Storm2. I've now been reading about the likely release of an updated Tour2 (with WiFi). So I have the following questions, please; 1) What is the difference between the Tour series and the Bold series; 2) Will Verizon also carry a version of the Bold2; 30 If Verizon is planning to release the Bold2, any idea of time-frame? Thanks in advance.

Scott, I think it would be better if you posted your questions as a new thread in the General section as opposed to hijacking this thread.

The 9700 is a newer version of the Bold. For a comparison of BB devices, check the link. This was also in the link Midnightdraven posted above.
