    Are CDMA users not happy that they have a TOUR? :-/

    Isn't the BB Bold 9700 (Onyx) a variant of the CDMA BB Tour? Sure they're not identical but VERY similar.

    No, the Onyx is a completely different device with several key design differences including it's external case, primary user interface (most likely trackpad), processor and capabilities (namely wifi and primary gsm network).

    no, the Onyx is a GSM phone... The Tour is very similair to the Onyx, and its a CDMA phone

    But the onyx is a better fone. I wish cdma carriers, especially sprint, received the same type of fones gsm carriers do. And I'm referring to bbs only, bc since I got my 8330m 4 months ago I'm def not getting anything else but a bb unless it is some game-changing device

    What is a "fone"? Sarcasm aside, there may be plans to redesign the 9700 into a CDMA version, but if there are its not going to be for a while.

    I'd rather have RIM focus on a Storm 2 than the Oynx. In my opinion, it seems like a better phone.

    Who's to say? Do you know of something we don't? Ill hold out for the tour with wifi but the 9700, as previously stated, has a better processor and such and that is the 'fone' I am most interesteed in at the moment, but I am not about to switch from sprint to get it. And xcuse my shortening of words...that's how I talk. If u understand what I mean then leave it at that cuz it is what it is

    CMDA never got the Bold, so I think it would be about time we at least get the Onyx.

    The only "smarter" blackberry that cdma(in particularly verizon) has is the BlackBerry® 8830, and that's pretty old. I am not counting the Storm, since that is in it's own separate category.

    I always viewed the Curve, especially the earlier versions to be the mid-class blackberry, the cool one for the teenagers. And the BlackBerry® 8830 was like the step up, for the business type busy people.

    I guess it's different with the new curve, but I still think they should at least push for the onyx, as their next upgrade to the "business type" phone.

    The Tour is the top of the line CDMA bb.
    The Bold is the top of the line GSM bb.

    So, in a sense, Tour = CDMA Bold.

    CDMA versions usually come after GSM ones.
    Bold summer 2008
    Tour summer 2009

    Bold 2 Spring 2010 ?
    Tour 2 Spring 2011 ?

    My 2 cents.

    Stupid wap won't let me edit my previous post.

    Think of the Onyx as Bolds younger brother, slightly thinner, slightly smarter and faster.

    GSM Onyx summer 2009
    CDMA ???? Summer 2010

    Buy a Tour or wait 'til next summer.
