Key Differences

  • WiFi: The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is capable of connecting to the internet through a WiFi wireless network, while the Tour 9630 cannot.  WiFi connectivity is particularly useful to browse the web and check internet when traveling abroad or while in an area with poor 3G coverage.  Both devices are capable of roaming internationally, but international voice and data fees do apply.
  • Navigation: Instead of the BlackBerry Tour 9630′s trackball, the Bold 9700 is equipped with a trackpad that serves the very same purpose.  Some BlackBerry users find that trackballs collect dust and dirt, and become less usable over time.
