BlackBerry Tour Arrives at Alltel Wireless

 BlackBerry Tour Arrives at Alltel WirelessAlltel customers in the market for a new smartphone should probably listen up, because it doesn’t seem like you guys will be getting an Android phone or an iPhone any time soon. Fret not, however, because you’re getting a hot new RIM option in the form of the BlackBerry Tour 9630. This is no consolation prize!

You may already be familiar with the BlackBerry Tour, as it is available through a few other carriers (like Verizon), but it’s nice to see that the Alltel crew can get their new BlackBerry fix as well. This is the newest of the CDMA ‘Berry devices from RIM, so you get all of the latest features too.

Among the more notable features are the backlit QWERTY keyboard, world phone capabilities, enhanced multimedia functions, 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS with BlackBerry Maps, 3G connectivity, HVGA (480×360) 65k color display, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 0.6″ profile.

The BlackBerry Tour can be found through your favorite Alltel retailer (and online) for $199 on just a one-year contract. Yes, a one-year contract. You will have to deal with a $100 mail-in rebate, but that’s better than signing a two-year contract. To get that price, however, you need to select a Smart Choice plan and those start at $69.99.
