Trading in an old BlackBerry could help buy the new model

Research In Motion (RIM) has announced a new model that goes by the name of the BlackBerry Tour.

Described by the manufacturer as a device that combines a host of multimedia capabilities with high style and next-generation features, the latest phone joins other RIM handsets like the Storm, Curve and Pearl.

Equipped with 3G connectivity, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth A2DP and 256 MB of Flash memory - expandable to 32 GB via a microSD card - a spokesman for the firm said the BlackBerry Tour is a valuable addition to the range.

Mike Lazaridis, president and co-chief executive officer at RIM, explained the device would help the brand retain its smartphone industry lead.

"With its striking design and exceptional performance, the new BlackBerry Tour will offer a compelling choice for the growing number of wireless customers looking to upgrade their existing cell phone to a smartphone," he said.

The BlackBerry Storm is currently available on the Vodafone network and is the only RIM handset to come with a full touchscreen.
