    I was wondering if the onyx is supposedly part of the 96xx series, then why does it look so different from the tour. Also, a pic on engadget of the onyx shows it being the NIAGARA and it being a 3g, cdma device. What's up with that?

    Onyx looks way sexier than the tour. They'll probably come out around the same time too.

    By that rationale you meant,

    Tour>Onyx

    since the Tour will be out later than the Onyx thus making it newer ergo better.

    So by your logic, the Storm being newer than the Bold, is a better device?

    The back of the Onyx looked like the Gemini. The Niagara back had the power contacts in the bottom of the back where the Onyx seems to have them on the sides (at the bottom). It almost looks like the cover will pop open like the Gemini.

    It also makes me wonder if the front of he Onyx looks so much like the Niagara, maybe the Niagara is going through some final release changes. I would think that all 96xx Tours would have the same look and style. The 8330 looks like the 8320....

    Since all we are seeing so far are evaluation units, there may be changes made (to Niagara and Onyx) on the release versions.

    I thought the Onyx was a GSM device slated for TMO

    yeah Onyx and Niagara are the same line of device, (look different) with all same feature except the Verizon Niagara has no wifi.

    but if onyx is gsm and for t-mobile, wouldn't we NOT have this issue with wifi given that its a GSM carrier

    The 8330 and the 8320 were actually styled differently. The LED light on the 8330 was under the screen while the LED on the 8320 was outside and above the screen.

    talk about a lot of leaked/pre release glimpses of new devices..

    definitely going to be frustrating if the only difference between Tour and "Onyx" will be wifi -- I could live without the trackpad, simply because it's the first time on a device so who knows how succesful it will be round 1 (lol Surepress).

    thats not my logic my logic was based on people wanting it more

    and YES when the storm was getting leaked information NOONE talked about the bold it was ALL storm so yes my comment still stands

    I still want the tour even though the onyx has now leaked more information where as the people who just cant hack when a newer thing comes will instantly jump on that newer item just because there is so little about it and they want more more more..

    and you made my point pretty accurately sometimes newer isn't always better and the latest greatest isn't always the best..

    I agree. Tour will be CDMA and looks like Onyx will be the sister phone in GSM
