BlackBerry Essex (Tour2?) Caught On Video

BlackBerryEssex With the original Tour barely out the door Kevin is now giving us a look at what the upcoming Tour2 will look like. I know RIM always tacks on new features and calls it a new device like the 8300->8310 but this was quick!

The Tour2 as it has been called has the codename “Essex” and looks like it is packing the same hardware as the original Tour with a few changes. The main changes are the addition of Wi-Fi and the replacement of the trackball with a trackpad. Nothing really crazy but this will bring the Tour2 up to date. It looks like the Essex hardware refresh was originally scheduled for Jan/Feb but rumor is that RIM is working on bringing it in before the holidays.

So what do you think of the Essex? Will you be changing your Tour for one? Check out the video after the jump.

  1. A common criticism of BlackBerry is too many models. I think the Tour to Tour2 is now the best example of this since the 8300 to 8310 as Ronen mentioned. The Tour2 is great but is only what the Tour should have been, and what really is so special vs the awaited Bold2?? Nothing!

  2. I believe that RIM should recall all Tour 1,§ and replace the tracker ball with tracker pad and throw in wifi. With all the problems us Tour owners have gone threw!

  3. Video removed already?

  4. Seriously?! I just bought my f#$%ing Tour last month. >_<
