Video: Is the Tour now the best BlackBerry on the market?

I've been testing the new BlackBerry Tour this week and did a quick video clip to share my first thoughts on the pros and cons of the Tour from a business perspective and where the new device fits in the smartphone market.
The new BlackBerry Tour was released by Verizon Wireless on July 12 (it's also coming to Sprint later this summer). I've been testing the Tour this week and did a quick video clip to share my first thoughts. This includes a rundown of the pros and cons from a business perspective and where the new device fits in the smartphone market.

Can't believe they left out WiFi capabilities...again. Wonder why? Anyone have any thoughts or reason for leaving out what has become an essential feature?

Ken like you, I wonder why they leave out the WiFi for most of their newer smartphones. I guess they assume most of their clients have the data plan so they don't need the WiFi functionality. Which is completely wrong by the way!

The next blackberry HAS to have wifi, without it they will lose to competition. Wifi is absolutely essential in the business community and will become even more necessary as time goes on. It's ridiculous to not continue to include it.
