    Hey Spade,

    I have never held the 8900 but from what I understand the tour is a little bit bigger but still smaller then the bold.

    It has a new keyboard which I love but I have nothing to compare it to. I also have a storm.

    The stock os is outstanding! And the screen is beautiful.

    Over all I'm very happy with the tour!

    Welcome to Blackberryos!

    Tour size is between 8900 and Bold (bigger than 8900, smaller than bold).

    Tour has KB similar to the Bold

    Tour has lower resolution screen

    Welcome to BBOS!

    Actually the statement about the Tour having lower resolution is not correct. Take a look at the following chart taken from RIM's website:
    Default themes and dimensions for screens and application icons on BlackBerry devices

    Just my opinion but I have both and find the screen display to be identical. I like the keyboard better on the Tour as it is a little bigger than the 8900. The Wifi on the 8900 is nice, especially when traveling overseas. But for everyday use I prefer the Tour because it is on VZW's network. TMO is ok, but overall VZW just has better coverage and better call quality. If I could choose only one it would the Tour.

    One thing everyone seems to forget...
    8900 has UMA, Tour does not.
    Nothing beats free calls.....lol.
