Research in Motion's latest smartphone—the BlackBerry Tour 9630—fits sizewise between the BlackBerry Bold and the Curve. While not breaking any new ground in smartphone technology, the Tour features many features consumers want and slides easily into enterprise BlackBerry deployments. Available on the Verizon and Sprint networks, the Tour talks CMDA/EVDO Rev A. at home and GSM/EDGE/HSPA in international locations. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi connectivity was sacrificed for world coverage. By Andrew Garcia
