    I wish that the Tour2 world have the external contacts on the bottom of the phone so that you could use a cradle like the Bolds. It is nice to just drop the phone in the cradle and not have to connect it via the mini usb port.

    I'm pretty sure the 9650 will have the charging contacts. The 9630 has them, there just on the back instead of on the lower sides

    Yes by looking at the pics if the 9650 it looks like there will be contacts on the back of the device.

    Are you maybe talking about the Curve 2? Just like what was said, the Tour (1 and 2) have contacts on the back of the phone instead of the bottom. It will still slide nicely into a cradle, no usb port needed.

    Yeah the cradle is much nicer. The power mat is pretty cool too.

    ... My Tour does not have contacts on the bottom or back. My Bold does have them and I hope that the Tour2 does. I have not seen a Tour2 so I that is why I asked the question. The Bold cradle is very nice and works well hope the Tour 2 cradle does the same.

    This is in no way a flame, but what version of the Tour do you have? As far as I know all Tours have these connections. Pic shows 9650 on left and 9630 on right, both with contacts.

    Tour 1, I do not have any contacts on the bottom like my 9700 Bold. If you can show me where there are I would love it. ...

    OK I see what could be contacts on the battery door but that is not like the Bold's contacts, they are on the rear/bottom of the actual phone. I had a Storm and the cradle that I had you had to use the mini usb port when inserting it into the cradle. My mistake if there are contacts on the battery door ...

    I agree. As soon as I get the phone I am buying the bat cover for the powermat. I use this thing every day.

    The 9630 charging contacts are the metal points on either side of the battery door latch on the back. As far as I know, the 95xx is the only current Berry that requires the use of the USB port. The 85xx might not have the charger contacts either, but I haven't looked.

    Thanks Maxiang I see them now and did not realize that they were charging contacts. The Bold 9700 and Storms are different.

    Yes, you'll be able to buy a charging pod for the tour 2 and it will be the same as the tour 1 pod. Just drop it in.

    I have two charging pods for my Tour. One on my desk and one on my nightstand. It is very convenient to just drop it in and have a fully charged BB all the time.

    Thanks Jeffy 294, I know it is hard to read people on a forum. It is not like talking to people face to face. Anyway no harm done. I just ordered the Charging Cradle and it should be here mid week. Thanks for your help.

    Did you see the new Powermat coming out in June, I seen them show it from CES, its sick? Smaller mat and the battery door is gonna be more slim as close to original battery door size. Its nice, I will be waiting to pick this little jewel up in June.

    Not to be mean but all you would've had to do was look in the Crackberry store and you would have easily found this...
