My 8830 WE is barely hanging on as it is.

    The WiFi issue with Verizon is even more perplexing. Why wouldn't verizon as a carrier not want to carry phones with user desired features like WiFi that every other carrier sells? That's always confused me. It's because of reasons like that, plus their beef with phones tethering is one of the reasons I remain a Sprint customer.

    VZ and Sprint will be getting the same updated Tour.

    Thats a separate "designed" unit. Theres not one in pre-prod yet. The WiFi Tour will be out for Sprint, and it wont take a year.

    Sprint is hanging on to WiMax being their 4G network. Why they are doing this, when the majority of the world is going LTE is beyond me.

    If I remember correctly you corrected me and said we won't see a Tour type device with Wi-Fi a while back. Care to clear that up?

    Guys please play it nice

    To defend both of you: RIM is constantly changing things, so this may not have been the case a while back, and now is. We don't know all the internal processes and decisions that are going on. It may still change again.
