    I thought BGR just said today that the BlackBerry Tour 9630 was thrown into the rumor mill, but now this sect of the forum is called BlackBerry Tour 9630? Was this confirmed past BGR's initial rumor?

    Speak!

    I believe it was the update on BGR which states that blackberrytour.com and blackberry9630.com redirects to the same address.

    I'm prettty sure it'll be Tour. It's not officially confirmed yet obviously, but am pretty sure that'll be it barring some last minute change from RIM.

    If it's not... I'll just change the forum name to whatever it ultimately is. What it definitely won't be though is Niagara... that was just the codename. And best to get unstuck from the codenames sooner than later. We still have 9630 in there so it shouldn't be difficult for people to find the correct forum.

    Hopefully we'll know for sure soon!

    R.I.P Niagara.

    Tour really doesn't sound very exciting...The Bold has got the sexier name.

    Name doesn't matter as long as the Device and OS rock though

    haha. As I said, personally I like the name. It's different. A thankfully the Niagara name will be gone soon. That one I don't like.

    What about the " blackberry sundae 9630" that's a little more catchy. But really the name doesn't make the phone so who cares what the name is.

    the only reason you'd like it is if you had some time to get used to it...

    whatever, its just the name of a phone. I prefer "stinky dog p00p on my shoe" more though.

    the only problem with the asterisks is that it looks like i said **** when really i said p00p and p00p is much funnier

    To be honest, I think I am going to miss the name Niagara. We have been following to so long that it has been engraved in my mind, lol.

    Someone probably bought the domain name to try and make a quick buck off of rim when it is ready to hit the streets hopping they will buy it from them for a large proffit

    Sorry not trying to be a buzz kill I want the 9630 just as much everyone else does

    I'm sure RIM doesn't even care about those domain names. They can just buy blackberryontour.com or blackberry9630tour.com or blackberrytour9630.com. They've got plenty of options.

    As this is true, that's not the point. RIM would want the most direct domain names to their site. When typing in a URL, who would type either of those? one would type one of the first two, which I guess is why everyone's in a tizzy.

    Still, I agree with the other person who said they could have been claimed by anyone, and I don't know what makes that news more official than a VZW rep rattling off release dates.

    So if you enter www. blackberrybold .com it redirects to RIM.
    If you enter www. blackberrycurve .com it goes to RIM.
    Ditto blackberrystorm .com, blackberry9000 .com, etc. The registrar of all these RIM domain names is CSC CORPORATE DOMAINS, INC.

    Now, the same whois lookup (at internic) for www. blackberrytour .com show the registrar to be GoDaddy. Do you think that RIM would lock in the name at GoDaddy, then switch registrars to CSC later? Smell fishy to anyone but me?

    I like "Tour". It's a good name. "Niagara" was just a codename anyway (Thank god!).
