    Hey guys.. Won’t believe me.. I’m sitting (rather staying...) @ a VZW Service store in "gocrazy" town OH. where the first pallet of 9650s is rumored to b released tomorrow... there are at least 71.000 people hushing bumper to bumper.. Looks like they're giving 96” Plasmas away free...

    (for those dudes not understanding a word that i just wrote.. well, neither do i... just trying to making fun of the people who's cousin's BF's sister's GF's son in law's G-d father's friend's teacher's plumber's wife's grandpa’s master's uncle's neighbor's bank manager's wife 2 b herself spoke to a dude that heard it from his cousin's BF's sister's GF's son in law's G-d father's friend's teacher's plumber's wife's granpa's master's uncle's neighbor's bank manager's wife 2 b... that the TOUR 2/EESEX/9650 will be out latest by December 12 of 1904... ) Lol.

    Short advise, as long as you don’t have "Your" Tour 2 IN YOUR OWN HANDS, do not believe anyone.. Including BGR, SAL, etc. they're all guessing just as you and me and had a little more luck to get their hand on the device more than you and me.. That’s about it!!!

    FWIW - was in Best Buy today -the Sprint & Verizon Tours were displayed side by side. The Sprint version was $149 with contract and the Verizon was $99. Going with the invetory clearing thinking - does this mean that Verizon is getting the Tour 2 first?
    The $99 Verizon price on the Tour may just be a competitive reaction by Verizon aimed at AT&T. In case you haven't noticed, lots of bad blood lately between those two. AT&T recently priced their new Bold 9700 at $99. The current Tour is the closest thing Verizon has right now to the Bold 9700, so Verizon probably price matched. No need for Verizon to markdown the Storm 2 since AT&T does not have a touchscreen BB and the Storm 2 just released.

    Well do we have a date? The Nexus One is being released on Jan 5th so in any event i would think the Essex should be released around that time as well.

    Okay... I am not a current Blackberry user, but I want to dive into the Blackberry world when my contract is up in February with Verizon. I am very interested in the Tour 2, but I have noticed that the Curve 2 is smaller and has most of the features I am looking for.

    So my question is... aside from world phone capability, what makes the Tour 2 stand out from the Curve 2? What are the major differences? Thanks...

    The tour 2 has higher screen resolution 480x360 on the tour 320x240 on the curve.

    Ginge22, the 4 Major Differences are,

    1) Tour has a 3.2 mp Camera (Curve 2 2.0 mp),

    2) Tour has a much higher screen Resolution,

    3)Tour has a Flash @ Camera (Curve 2 doesn't have flash at all),

    4) Tour has a quicker processor.

    Otherwise, more of the same.. Curve 2 is even better weight-wise which is quite a factor..

    Thanks guys... I think the added benefits of the Tour 2 make it the easy choice for me out of the two.

    One more thing I would state also is that the Tour 2 has a larger battery, longer call and surf times.

    I thought the Tour 2 was gonna have the same processor as the Tour, which is the same as the Curve 2?

    According to BGR they said the processor seems faster/snappier. However, that could just be a result of the essex running the more updated 5.0 os.

    agreed...meanwhile, sprint as usual is off somewhere on other continent playing the 5th wheel.

    Ginge, I've had the Tour 1, currently have Curve 2 and waiting to get to Tour 2. Def. wait for the Tour 2. I'd say the wifi and optical pad are great. I like the optical pad better than trackball. these were 2 blatant upgrades that Tour 1 was missing.

    In my opinion.
    Tour 1 > Curve 2(ever so slightly)...tour is bit faster and screen is much better.

    wish they would release a phone with an HD quality screen, would make life much more enjoyable. Unlike most im willing to pay more to get what i want out of a phone. Like nokia's standard 5mp all the way to 10mp cameras in their phones. I hate that they dumb down phones to keep the price point "cheap"

    Any word on release date?

    umm and hd screen on a phone with a screen that small would be pretty usless.
    hd is primarialy used for larger scale images. look at an old 4x3 with a digital box, it looks just as good as a hd 50" tv just on a different scale

    As someone who has worked in home theater for years i could argue this fact. In the end 90% of what you read is opinion and only 10% is fact...I will leave it at that. My opinion, based on what I know to be fact is that it does make a difference. And as someone who has been in the cellular industry for over 12 years I do know that they dumb down phones to keep pricepoints where they want.
