RIM announces BlackBerry Tour 9630

News of a devilishly handsome device from RIM, has hit the internet in the shape of the BlackBerry Tour 9630, formerly known as the Niagara. Not only is the device impressively compact, measuring 112x62x14.2mm and weighing 130 grams (though not quite as svelte at the BlackBerry Curve 8900), it also sports a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.44-inch 480x360 pixel display.


Feature wise and RIM has packed in a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash, auto-focus and video capture for all you snapper enthusiasts. There's also the much sought after 3.5mm headset jack and A2DP stereo Bluetooth, though rather bizarrely for a BlackBerry device, there is no sign of any Wi-Fi, though onboard HSDPA should help soften the blow. While there is only 256MB of onboard memory, the BlackBerry Tour does support microSD cards of up to 32GB, while talktime and we can expect around 400 minutes.


The BlackBerry Tour 9630 sounds and looks like another good addition to RIM's portfolio, so we'll be hoping it finds its way to these shores soon.
