RIM BlackBerry 9650 Drops the Tour Name, Picks Up Bold

Posted on March 14th, by Evan Selleck in archive. 3 comments

When it comes to devices, Research In Motion’s BlackBerry line-up is one of the most concrete when it comes to model numbers and names. For the most part, devices that fall into a certain category are matched with an appropriate name and number combination. However, it looks like things are changing, as the BlackBerry 9650 (which should be a Tour), is getting a bit of a name change, even if its numbers are staying the same.

The fine folks over at CrackBerry have managed to grab hold of the leaked 9650 OS user guide, and sure enough, the device proper is not named after the Tour it’s so numbered, but has taken on a far more Bold name. Of course, while this is a user guide for the device proper, matched with a leaked version of the OS that will probably be running the device, mistakes happen. So, until we’ve got a real confirmation (as in, a device in our hands), we’ll go ahead and mark this as unconfirmed.

The reason this may be so troubling to some BlackBerry fanatics out there, is simply the model numbers. The BlackBerry Bold line-up usually takes on a far higher number, like 9700. So, for all intents and purposes, this new Bold (if it is indeed a Bold) could easily take on the 9750 moniker pretty easily. The numbering of the devices, for some, is just as important as the name, considering that they’re set in place for a particular family line under the Research In Motion banner.

    I am in a bit of dilema, I’ve had my Apple iPhone 3G for the last 2 years and it’s been fine. It’s my understanding that Apple has a new update coming out called OS 4 and it’s supposed to be adding some new features to the iPhone 3G. I actually just bought Verizon’s new HTC Incredible the HTC Incredible and it is an incredible phone, far superior to the iphone 3gs, BUT I’m hearing that Apple is going to be coming out with a completely new iphone altogether, and it’s supposed to be really nice but no one has any ideas as to when and Apple isn’t saying a thing. Should I keep my HTC Incredible, that I have 30 days to test and return if I do not want to keep it, or should I return it, keep my current 3G and wait for the release of the new iPhone- tough to to choose.
