Looks like the name will stick after all
Many were not exactly thrilled with the news that the new BlackBerry would be called the Tour. While the 9630 or codename Niagara, if you like, seems to have been branded as the Tour the only thing left is the official announcement from Verizon.
The part that we just found out today from our sources is that the Tour will be officially launched on Verizon in July. This cross between a Curve and a Bold will likely be a big hit with the Verizon crowd who have been waiting for a BlackBerry like this for some time.
Our prediction is that it will arrive in mid-July for $199 with a two year contract. We also predict that supplies will be tight in the early going, so if you want one, you might want to start trying to figure out how you will lock one up when we get closer to the official release.
