The name BlackBerry is one of the best known in the smartphone realm, and with good reason. A strong line of products in the past has made it one of the most popular series of smartphones not only for its performance but functionality as well. The newest edition, the BlackBerry Tour 9630 from Verizon, is no exception.
The Tour 9630 is a well-rounded package that grades well in terms of features, aesthetic appeal, and performance. There are a few things missing from the 9630 that will disappoint some -- it lacks Wi-Fi -- but this absence is overshadowed by the positive aspects brought to the table by this smartphone. Its world-roaming capabilities make it perfect for international travelers, and its bevy of features are sure to please business professionals and smartphone junkies as well.
It is a bit pricey, at $199.99 when purchased in conjunction with a two year service agreement and after a $70 mail in rebate, but you definitely get what you pay for with this product.
There are many places one could start when describing the overall excellence of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 for Verizon, but first let's go to the features. The list is as long as Fat Albert is wide. The phone-related basics include conference calling to help handle those important business issues, voice-activated and speed dialing for making calls on the fly, smart dialing, and a speakerphone.
You can store as many contacts as you wish that will be sustained by the 9630's available memory, and group them according to their relation to you, as well as associate a specific ringtone and photo with them. For each contact you can input various detailed information such as their home and work numbers, physical addresses, email addresses, and other bits of data.
The 9630 also has Bluetooth 2.0 and supports hands-free kits, wireless headsets, stereo, and phone book access just to name a few. Standard organizational tools on the 9630 include a task list, memo pad, calendar, voice recorder, and alarm.
