We’ve been hearing rumors of a September MR for the BlackBerry Tour for a while now. Even though OS 4.7.1.42 didn’t turn out to be the first official new software release, we believe we now have a winner. We’ve just got word that the official maintenance release for the BlackBerry Tour due out around October 1st will be OS 4.7.1.53. I’ve been running this on my Tour for a pretty long time and even though it does manage to speed up the phone a bit, it’s really not the answer I think many Tour owners are looking for. Better than nothing, though! At least until 5.0 gets here…

Thanks, Rob!
