Default BlackBerry 9650 essex Video (CrackBerry)

Please Login to Remove!

Here's the link: BlackBerry Tour2 Video First Look! | CrackBerry.com

What do you guys think about the essex. Basically its a Tour with wifi and trackpad. Also following similar naming conventions as recent releases...it may be labeled the Tour2.

I knew it was coming out sooner than later. Everyone on this site was saying no way and that it won't be anything like the original Tour. I was thinking first quarter next year, but if they come out with one before the holiday------I WILL BE SHOCKED!

So as a quick adopter of the Tour ........... I feel pretty stiffed here I would have loved both of these features. No idea why RIM released them so close or ever even came OUT with Tour1 if this thing comes out this year.

Because the CDMA networks needed a new blackberry, and the Tour was what RIM had to offer.

probably both. tour might be phased out if people stop buying it.
but there will be some who have no interest in wi-fi, so may buy the tour.

i have been patiently waiting...i plan to get this when it comes out. wifi, trackpad, world coverage, physical qwerty, non touch, 5MP camera...seems like it has all the things that i have been waiting for. hopefully they throw in a 16Gb card with it like they are with the droid.

I can't decide whether to keep this storm 2 or wait for the tour 2 or get the first tour.. not too sure on this touch screen.

well, i'm not a yankees fan but i'm pulling for them in the series. Wouldn't mind seeing jeter get one more ring, altho i wish there was a way that jeter could get one & a-roid would not.

man, i hate to say it but your celts are probably the team to beat this year...hopefully we'll c u in the 'ship game & hopefully I will have my tour2/essex by then! altho now i'm seeing ppl say that the camera will only be 3.2MP...not that big of deal i guess, but 5Mp would've been nice. I guess we will c.

good luck this season.

I really do like Jeter and wouldn't mind him winning another ring either--he's a class act. Can't STAND A-Rod either.

As for the Celts, they have definitely surprised me! I am still shocked that they beat Cleveland the other night but again, it's a loooong season. I still think your Lakers are probably the best. They may not be playing their absolute best right now, but when they do, watch out. Time well tell.

i think your main competition in the east will be Orlando. Cleveland lacks crunch time coaching. Hopefully my boyz will start rollin once Pau gets back.

Good luck, my bberry brutha.

Verizon is going for the jugular. If your contract is up and you are looking for a new device, you might want to take a look at this. WOW!

You don't how good wifi is till you've had it. Especially in those spots with no signal.
