Blackberry Tour 2... 9650...

here is a small part from the Chat with sprint section where they mention it

Ace: Will Sprint be getting any blackberries with wifi this year?
David: today sprint offers the BB tour which includes wifi.
....................
David: hang on a minute i went a little fast, we are adding wifi to tour and will have other bb products that include wifi going forward
Its almost the end of the year and no sign of the Tour with WIFI.
According to CB site the tour 2 is suppose to add wifi and replace the trackball with a touchpad.
SO WHERE IS IT ?? i dont want a 8530 with REV 0.. i want a 9650 rev Ave..

Were you given this misinformation by a Customer Service representative?  I am returning my Blackberry Tour because it is incompatible with my current phone and have been told that it is impossible to remotely upload my currently stored data.  I am returning the Blackberry Tour without any penalty charges assessed.  Just tell them what you expect from the poor service and information provided.

Whoever told you a update would "add WiFi" was seriously on PCP when they went to work that day.

WiFi is all hardware. Your phone either has it, or it doesn't. That's like saying, "OS 5.0 will give us a 10mp camera with xenon flash, and a 1080p display."

Here is the latest news given to me by a reliable (Corporate) Sprint employee.  The 9650 is supposed to be released for purchase through Sprint the end of March. There were some "issues" that needed fixed, and now all that needs to happen is to train the reps who sell the phone.      I am having a hard time believing the person who posted that they already ordered 2 9650's from sprint, unless they are in a test program, or related to Dan Hesse.

Don't put too much stock in the above prediction. It may be true and it may not. Crackberry.com is full of forum threads about when the 9650 is going to be released, what it's going to be called and whether the prerelease test/eval units that have shown up since November look anything like what will actually hit the market. There are dozens of "reliable info" posts supposedly obtained from Sprint and/or Verizon internal sources, corporate or otherwise, none of which agrees with the others. The basic fact is that no one knows nuthin', especially Sprint reps and salespeople, who are often the last to know. If it shows in March, great, but it may well not be out until May or even midsummer, or never (some rumors say it's been scrapped completely), depending on which rumor-of-the-day you want to believe.

In response to Alfista's post.  You are probably right..  "dont believe nothin bout' nothin".  But unless you are higher in the Corporate realm than I know my friend is (at Sprint), I think I will take their word for it this time.  And if they dont release the 9650 at the last minute.. well, it is not the end of the world, now is it?  For now, I have something to look forward to..   I guess in the grand scheme of things.. its about how you live your life each day, and I dont think the release of the 9650 will make or break it.  I just thought this site was for sharing information and I was sharing what I heard.  Take it for what it is worth, and have a nice day.  By the way, if you read these blogs and dont think anyone knows what they are talking about, why do you waste your time?
