Bell adds BlackBerry Tour

Canadian wireless provider Bell on Friday announced it is now offering the 3G BlackBerry Tour handset in its lineup. The smartphone can access both local EVDO and global HSPA 3G networks. The handset otherwise sports a 3.2-megapixel camera and a 480x360 resolution screen, and the prerequisite QWERTY keyboard.

The Bell Tour is all but identical to the standard Tour handset, including assisted GPS functionality that lets users find navigation information via BlackBerry Maps and there are shortcuts to popular social networks such as Facebook. Users can also download, view and edit Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel files, while applications can be downloaded from BlackBerry App World. A new HTML browser supports streaming audio and video. Storage comes via a microSDHC memory card slot.

Pricing for the Tour from Bell consists of $250 CAD (about $215) on a three-year contract that includes a data plan or $700 CAD (about $602) contract-free, as reported earlier.
