Turns out "later this summer" really meant July 12, at least as far as Verizon Wireless is concerned. If you're interested in the BlackBerry Tour, you can pre-order it starting today. It will cost you $200 after rebates with a new two-year agreement.
If you've forgotten the specs, here they are again. The Tour supports Verizon's EVDO Rev. A 3G network, and it also includes quad-band GSM/EDGE and 2100MHz HSDPA for 3G roaming in Europe. Sadly, the Tour doesn't include Wi-Fi. Bluetooth 2.0 is there, which supports mono and stereo headsets, handsfree devices and phone book access. It also has a 3.5mm headset jack for most stereo headphones. Lest we forget, it also has a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and video capture.
Speaking of the camera... The really good news is that the Tour will be offered both with and without a camera. This means if your business has strict rules governing cameras in the workplace, you'll still be able to take advantage of all the Tour has to offer.
You can pre-order the Tour right here.
