09/27/2013, Microsoft had announced it would be taking the Xbox One across the U.S. and Canada to give fans and those who are on the fence whether or not they’ll buy it or the PlayStation 4 a chance to get some hands-on time with the next-generation console. At the time, Microsoft had only announced five locations for their whirlwind tour, but it looks like they may have more tour dates hidden up […]
07/20/2011, While tour busses are a necessary part of most tours, they don’t always stop where you want them to stop at. And when they do, most of the time you don’t get to go out of the bus; you’re forced to just look out the windows. After awhile, the bus will move on to the next stop on the tour and then the same thing happens. Now wouldn’t it be […]
03/16/2011, Rayovac has just announced a nationwide tour where they will be showing off their new torchlight. Called the Indstructible Tour, Rayovac will be hitting different states around the US and showing off just how indestructible their torch light is. The Indestructible light has a body made from aluminum and titanium, and pack a set of LED lights with a brightness of 100-150 lumens. The torchlight is built to withstand 30-foot […]
03/12/2010, If you happen to own a BlackBerry Tour 9630 and are feeling a little bit more adventurous compared to other smartphone owners, why not give the OS 184.108.40.2068 leak a go? After all, this is not an official release, so the chances of things running awry is much higher than that of Iraq carrying WMDs all those years back. Installation of this OS leak is done at your own peril, […]
10/28/2009, A video of the Blackberry Tour 2 (now with WIFI and a trackpad). The current codename for this product is “essex”, and it might be called BlackBerry Tour 2, or something else, we just don’t know. Besides from the addition of WIFI and the trackpad (many customers complain that the trackball gets eventually tuck with dust) there’s apparently nothing new, so we’ll call this a minor update.

09/17/2009, The BlackBerry Tour is not exactly the hottest selling product on the market right now, but that’s a good thing since Research in Motion will have enough time to do something about the physical design defect of a trackball that gets clogged up all too easily, requiring users to clean it on a frequent basis to keep it going. The Tour has so far experienced up to a 50% return […]
08/10/2009, The folks at ColorWare has done their bit to expand the love of colors to the BlackBerry Tour, and this is pretty speedy considering the smartphone didn’t even make it out for more than a month already. ColorWare is willing to take your Tour and give you a custom color coating of your choice for $129, while you can pick up a customized design from them directly for $750, with […]
07/10/2009, Sprint looks set to release a couple of handsets – the new “Inferno” 8330 and the Red Curve 8350i. While the BlackBerry Tour will be arriving from Sprint within the next few days, it would make us wonder whether there will be anyone who will pick up one of the freshly painted 83XX Series devices. How many of you would not take up the Tour offer and go ahead with […]
07/01/2009, We’ve known for a while that the BlackBerry Tour would be available at Sprint for $199 (w/ 2yr contract), but the date is now official: it’s July 12. It’s actually the same offer (and the same day) then what Verizon has, but it’s the best BlackBerry offering for both carriers. Official page.
06/24/2009, I have a few friends who can’t stand the outdated BlackBerry lineup available at Verizon and can’t wait to get their hands on the Blackberry Tour. The good news is that Verizon has already setup a $70 rebate for this phone. The date on the upper-left shows that the rebate is good for the 6/28 to 8/1 period, so it means that the launch is somewhere in there…
06/11/2009, PhoneArena.com has received word from an anonymous tipster that the BlackBerry Tour will have the same touch-display technology than the BlackBerry Storm. It’s not clear if it’s a good thing or not, but we like the idea of having the touch+keyboard combo. We’ll have to see how this will be implemented because 80% of everything lies in execution, right?
