Word on the street is that the BlackBerry 9650 may be delayed because of software issues.  The device might also be called the Bold as compared to the Tour.

Some Verizon stores did get the 9650. They were sent back for “updates”.  Verizon won’t release the 9650 until the official OS 5.0 arrives for the Tour 9630. The Sprint 9650’s are having WiFi issues and Sprint is working that out. And at the end of the email he states: “it won’t be called the Tour 2. It’s the Bold 9650.

I wonder if the name Tour is being dropped because of all the issues with the trackball on the Tour 9630 whereas the reputation of the Bold is pretty solid?
