    This is great news! I hope it's accurate and I can't wait! My 1 year contract will be up in Nov. so hopefully the bugs will be fixed by then. Though I'm confident the Tour will not have much.

    So July 13th? Hmmmm....Interesting. If memory serves me correct, I think a really popular phone was released around that same time frame last year.

    If I could only remember the name...

    beautiful news.......now only if it was really going to be 199 i would be in love

    I think $199 w/ 2yr contract after rebates/discounts sounds about right. Add NE2 to that, and I will be one happy man come July (knock on wood).

    Been trolling these waters for almost a year and finally joined in march however this is my first post-you know don't say anything unless you have something valuable to say. Well my birthday is July 15th and I just got an early birthday present. This is a great reason to now stay with Verizon

    I feel compelled to say again; how do we know the 7-13-2009 quote
    refers to a "release" date and not an "announcement" date? I guess we'll
    know soon enough.

    its a good point but i feel (hope) its the release date because if they dont announce it until they will loose business to all the other phones being released early summer

    Kevin Byrne posted over at HoFo this morning that the Tour will be released on Verizon on July 13th.

    HowardForums: Your Mobile Phone Community & Resource - The Official BlackBerry Tour 9630 Pre-release Thread

    Knowing Kevin's reputation for solid information regarding Blackberry release dates, along with the fact that he posted a specific date instead of just something like "mid-summer" or "July," I feel that we can trust this date as accurate.

    I for one will be crossing my fingers but I still always think until verizon makes it official or even a fcc document a release date is pretty hard to believe..

    Theres not even a fcc document yet...

    Awesome. I hope this is a release date. This is the most accurate sounding one yet (as opposed to all those people who said may)

    I would also like to mention that for the storm launch there was about 45 dates guessed before it came out...

    So take it all with a grain of salt

    I would think it is safer to assume that this would be the "announcement" date as Kevin over on hofo didnt say much or add much besides the date. Truth of the matter is, we really DONT know. All we know now is, we have a date.

    And don't worry about the FCC docs. I've seen phones get the FCC docs released 1 month before the phone was released. So to me, this is not that surprising. I would still safely be putting prediction of the release in August.

    I'm not surprised it's supposed to come out basically the same exact time as the new iphone. I just hope verizon announces it by the time steve announces his product.
