Wireless carriers Sprint and Verizon are reportedly getting ready to release yet another smartphone from the Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion, namely the BlackBerry Tour2 9650. The handset has been already rumored to be in the works in RIM's labs, and newly leaked documents show that the two US operators will receive the device in the not too distant future.
The pieces of info on BlackBerry Tour2 9650 heading towards Sprint and Verizon Wireless in the United States come from the SKUs of the device, which popped up courtesy of crackberry
for Verizon and Sprint, respectively. There are not too many details on this matter for the time being, but one should expect for the second Tour smartphone from RIM
to land in March or April, it seems, considering that it takes about two months for BlackBerry device to emerge after the SKU leaks.
At the same time, we should also note that the exact details on what the BlackBerry Tour2 will come around with when compared to the previous version lack too. However, the guys over at BlackBerry Cool say
that we should be looking out for memory and processor improvements with the new device
, and it seems that Wi-Fi and a trackpad should be included in the package too.
Until more details on this handset emerge, we should take a look at yet another recently leaked smartphone from RIM, namely BlackBerry 8910
. According to BGR
, the phone seems to be none other than the leaked BlackBerry Atlas, a BlackBerry 8900 version with 256MB of RAM, 624MHz processor, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, optical trackpad and EDGE-only connectivity.
Considering the fact that the Canadian handset vendor already announced plans to launch only Wi-Fi-enabled handsets
, the specs of Atlas might not fit the bill, though it is also possible for them to have been changed in the meantime. One way or the other, additional details should emerge as the story develops, so keep an eye on this space for further updates on the matter.
