The rumoured update to Sprint’s BlackBerry Tour (code-named Essex) which was to include Wi-Fi and a trackpad has shown its face. This is certainly not the first time we’ve seen the 9650, and the CEO was already pretty open about an updated Tour, but it’s the first concrete sign of a device that was definitely built for Sprint. This particular model was running OS 188.8.131.525, and was apparently being sold privately from someone within RIM. The 9650 (and 9100, for that matter) likely won’t be landing until 2010, but at least you know what’s coming.
