The BlackBerry Tour 9630 is a high-end smartphone launching in July 2009 on Verizon and Sprint cellular networks in the US. Unlike its major competitors, the touch-screen Palm Pre and iPhone 3GS, the 9630 features a full physical keyboard below a 480 x 360 pixel display. It works worldwide on 3G networks, and features BlackBerry Maps and built-in GPS with turn-by-turn directions. GPS also allows geo-tagging for photos taken with the 3.2-megapixel camera. A microSD card slot enables expanded storage (beyond the 256 MB on-board) for music, video, and photos. Battery life is rated at 5 hours talk time.
