We might not be that far from a Tour announcement. The rumored release dates are all falling around the same area, and the device was recently found in Telus’s and Verizon’s databases. That doesn’t mean much, really, but it should signal the impending announcement. Please? The Storm 2 got caught on camera this week, much to the delight of BBGeeks everywhere. Hopefully this one fulfills the expectations of the first one. Then we deal with the nasty question of the expectations for the second one. Who knows, maybe RIM hits a homer with this one. T-Mobile will get a pair of new BlackBerry devices this year: the Onyx, which is the GSM Tour it appears, and the Gemini/Curve, the entry-level devices with the optical track pad. Looks like T-Mo is going for an all-out BlackBerry attack. Get the top of the line device for the high-end customers and gadget hounds, and the low-end to attract new users. The Gemini should certainly do that better than the Pearl flip.
