Official BlackBerry Tour product page

Blackberry has released their official product page for the BlackBerry Tour.

Well seems like it doesn’t have a touchscreen after all. Thats really bad, because i would have loved to see a BlackBerry device with this formfactor and a full qwerty, sporting a touchscreen for a better internet browsing experience. Also the Tour will be shipped without WiFi support. Now that’s a serious drawback.

I really like the UI-Style of the new BlackBerry phones, because it reminds me of the old fan favourite movie “Tron” somehow (don’t ask me why – seems to be the new white glowing icons), but currently there are to many features missing for me to make the devices a serious contender.
