    Its definitely good new bad news with RIM this past year and going into 2010. Nice to see new devices, but 2nd gen devices less than a year from the original launch date is craziness. Thats just making existing owners mad and potential owners hesitant to purchase with fear of a newer better device right around the corner.

    VZW; Pad

    :irked: I waited three years to upgrade waiting for a WiFi device and after one month I hear this news... hope VZW does give some consideration to us short timers.

    I am a little hesitant over the trackpad - never been a fan of touch pads on laptops. Any feel for operation?

    I just hope that they fixed the radio-related issues on this new Tour 2 (Essex). I get more dropped calls on my 9630 in one month than I did in the 2 years that I owned my Curve (which was SOLID). I'm already on my 7th Tour...

    Personally I think it's pretty sad. All this is the Tour with wifi and a trackpad. Honestly what's so novel about that. RIM really needs to step up their creativity and actually offer the consumer something novel.

    I so agree with ya, I looked more into the Essex and now am just going to wait till a more advanced BB comes out for VZW. Yeah it has WiFi/Trackpad and 2GB of internal memory but the guts are the same as the first Tour! I mean really RIM? Ya could've boosted the processor and what not and the look of it! Another thing, I am a fan of trackballs.

    This is definitely an upgrade from the original Tour. While I do not think I would purchase the current Tour, I would most certainly entertain the thought of getting the Essex. Especially because there is no Bold for VZW.
