Angry CES - Tour 2 (Essex) - No info!

Please Login to Remove!

Just came back from CES. I must say I was very disappointed in Blackberry's booth. All that was displayed were currently released models and after asking three booth reps, none of them had any information regarding the Tour 2 and they all said they had never even heard of it. They said, we know what you know from our website. Then why spend money and have a booth at CES unless they're instructed not to release any info but again, I though that the booth would be to push upcoming models and prototypes? Other vendors for other products did. However, RIM wasn't the only booth that only displayed current models with no info for future equipment. Pioneer, Garmin, and a couple others did the same.

The demo devices for the 9650 has shown up in both Verizon's and Sprint's systems....so fingers crossed it will be soon.

Several threads on this. It looks more likely that it will be a Q1 release. I can get my upgrade in May so I am as anxious as many other VZW users

It would be nice if Sprint finally beat Verizon to the finish line on something!

I got a Tour1 from work, absolutely great device. I can't wait for the Tour2 on VZW (sprint is crappy in my area) I can't see upgrading to a new BlackBerry without Wi-Fi either so hopefully it's soon!

Don't strain yourself... When a carrier releases it, you'll know about it.

You have a couple more days to hit the half way point.

Release of Essex (9650) delayed due to VZW having issues with 5.0 os for 9630 thus not releasing the upgrade.

Once 5.0 is released by vzw for 9630 then you expect the 9650 to be available.

Crackberry has an extensive section of threads on this.

Yes. This was the same protocol that was followed when the Storm 2 was released. Good information.

I assume this would also hold up Sprint.
