So this should finally make a lot of Verizon owners happy! Verizon is FINALLY training the staff on the new BlackBerry Bold 9650! Oh yes, that's right, it's about time too isn't it?
One of my spies sent me these pics showing the training material in action... and you can even see they are still only going with a 2GB Micro SD card for the storage. A little small, but better than nothing I guess! It may seem a little late in coming, but this is still a very nice device. Taking the chipset of the 9550, throwing in 512MB of memory and melding it with the super sexy trackpad from the 9700. It should keep the Verizon BlackBerry owners happy... until the Storm3 comes out... but that's a different story altogether! Anyway, no word quite yet on release date, but I hear it might be in the next week, two weeks at the most.
The BlackBerry Bold 9650 Gets the Show on the Road at Verizon!
Alright now, Can You Dig it? It seems like a scene from the Warriors with Cyrus getting BlackBerry users ready for Verizon's release of the latest World Phone from RIM.
The BlackBerry Bold 9650 has training material displayed in Verizon's inventory which surely means that Verizon Wireless BlackBerry customers will have another device to upgrade to.
BlackberryOS forums have been filled with speculation about this device. And while it is still not known when Verizon sets the release date for the BlackBerry Bold 9650, be sure that the ball finally seems to be rolling now. Another bit of information for you, Verizon will be furnishing BlackBerry Bold 9650 owners with a 2GB Micro SD card for the storage. A far cry from the 16GB card that 9550 owners were sold with.
Britishturbo with The BlackBerry Zone had these images sent to him and our member mrmojr1 gave us the heads up. Thanks BT!
By the way, not to take away from the BlackBerry 9650 but BT did talk about a certain BlackBerry Storm3 as well....
Verizon users....Will you be using your upgrades to pick up this device? Are you going to you VZW store to try the BlackBerry 9650 on for size?
why don't they just realize it's the Tour 2 and quit this bold name tagging...it looks identical to the tour except for the upgrade of the optical pad from the track ball.
What is RIM trying to do here..?
the tour branding flopped big time. the bold has only prospered since its release of the 9000. they decided to go with the bold name brand, as the name itself, should be able to sell the device regardless of the specs.
anyway, i'm waiting on the storm3. c'mon rim! 1gb of memory, 16gb microsd card, 8gb device memory, 5mp+ camera, OS 6.0, new bb usb charger, wifi b/g/n and bluetooth 4.0 compatibility!
even with all of that, it'll probably just be on par with the iphone and droid platforms.
all i'm asking for is rim to go from -1 to 0. being even is better than being behind....
I have been testing the new Verizon curve for the past month. I had to send it back on Monday.. I have used 5 different models and I must say the speed was amazing fast especially with WIFI. Screen resolution was great and felt a lot sturdier then my 8530. Also the camera's pictures were great and the re is a flash!!!! Bad choice on RIM to put one on the 8530. I would recommend the upgrade when its released. I am already in for when they are released in the coming weeks.
I took the picture of my test Bold with my Curve. I had to cover the serial number that was ingraved at the bottom if you were wondering what that was. Like I said this was a test device
