    I currently have an 8900. When is the tour being released to rogers. Is there really a big difference between the two devices?

    The Tour is not going to be released with Rogers since it is a CDMA device and Rogers is a GSM provider.

    Yeah aristile is right and the 8900 is an awesome phone. Why would you want to switch?

    If I was on a CDMA carrier I'd get the Tour... the 8900 is a GSM device and will not work on a CDMA carrier... so you have two phones that will NOT be available on the same carrier.

    The Tour is a CDMA device and Rogers operates a GSM network as others have previously said. So the Tour will never be released on Rogers. There is not much of a difference between the Tour and 8900. The 8900 is a little smaller than the Tour and the Tour has the Bold keyboard. The Onyx will be the device that one-ups the Tour with UMA and the optical trackpad with the Bold keyboard. You'll also have a small sized device with the Onyx.

    Trackpad and Wifi are 2 reasons, until the essex is released which will even things up a bit. After that the big difference will be processor type and speed. And OS. Since switching to CDMA I feel GSM devices always seem to get a leg up with OS updates.
