    New Details for the 9100 aka Striker


    Sometimes it pays to be awake at this time of day. There are new details about the 9100 also known as the Striker. Well not any more. It has a shiny new name. The BlackBerry Essex. It's official and not just a rumored device any more. This is the updated version of the Tour, with wifi! Now the question everyone is asking, when the heck can I get my hands on it? Thanks to salomondrin at CrackBerry for the info.

    Hopefully not for a while as that would really piss off a lot existing Tour users.

    So the question is, why would they release a device when a better model of it is right behind the corner. Another fantastic marketing move from the brilliant minds of RIM, not.

    9100 would be a GSM device wouldn't it?

    I bet it will be quite a while before this sees the light of day. Think about how long the onyx and storm 2 have been known devices and we're still waiting on them.

    Is this release device going to have the trackball? And aside from WIFI, what else does Essex have that makes it an updated version of the Tour?

    Striker is the 3G pearl, suretype device and looks like a BB bastard child.

    PS: Look hard enough and you'll find it listed on a few vendors sites, say...I dunno...Telenav.
