BlackBerry Tour2 9650 makes its debut in Cellebrite, Verizon launch imminent?

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:31PM EST

Good news for Verizon Wireless BlackBerry customers that passed on the Storm 2 and the Curve 8530 in order to wait for the Tour2. The much-awaited BlackBerry 9650 was spotted by a Verizon Wireless employee while browsing through Cellebrite, a system used for transferring contacts from one phone to another. There is no confirmed time frame from when a phone appears in Cellebrtie to when it is launched but, in general, a phone’s appearance in Cellebrite is a good indication that a launch is somewhat imminent, though this isn’t a science and is not foolproof. While you wait for this beautiful BlackBerry to hit the shelves, you can drool over the pictures in our hands-on gallery.
