As a rule (with the exception of the BlackBerry Storm), GSM carriers have a tendency to pick up BlackBerry devices before their CDMA counterparts. As a self-proclaimed BlackBerry addict, I've been excited about the launch of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 for some time now, and the device was officially announced this morning. Granted, we knew it was coming, but it's still nice to hear official confirmation from the Verizon PR team.
What's more interesting though, is Sprint's press release release a few minutes after Verizon's, stating that they would also be picking up the device, and even went as far as to mention a price ($200 after rebates). This struck me as interesting, given the disproportionate amount of "chatter" given to the Verizon version over the Sprint one. At any rate, now that announcements have been made, we should see them sooner rather than later.
