    Yep, I did a side-by-side comparison of the new BB Tour against my BB Bold.
    First, I selected same apps and hit "go" and to my surprise, the BB Tour kept pace with my Bold. I then opened the Browser so I could compare the web browsing speed of the two BBs. Now, before I go on, I want to say that I am first shocked by the results. Why, because the Verizon BB Tour internet capability is wayyyy faster that that I get on my Bold through AT&T. I talking wayyyyyy faster. It is my understanding that "3G" is a technical format and hence all 3G service should have the same specs and speed capabilities barring heavy loads on a carrier's system, the performance of the devices should have been similar. Not so, as the Tour loaded page after page way faster than my Bold. What gives?

    Lastly, one thing I liked about the new BB Tour is the new "Visual V-Mail" feature. Man! Can someone pls develop an app that will current Bold owners to have this feature! Man, visual v-mail is the coolest thing since,...sliced bread and I want it now.

    ATT's 3G has been chopped off at the legs by the iPhone. You wont get anywhere near CDMA 3G speeds because the iPhone is chewing up all the BW.

    a year ago, I went from 1500Kbps, which is 1.5Mbps, which is 150KB a sec to less than a third of that.

    Now? I barely get 300Kbps.. and most often than not, lower than that. =(
