Best Smartphone for International Travelers: BlackBerry Tour 9630

This month I finally broke down and upgraded to the Blackberry Tour 9630. Actually, this upgrade is something that I have contemplated for a while now. So why the change of heart? Actually, the question became a sort of why not, rather than the previous why. Verizon Wireless offers these portable offices for free when you sign up for a new contract or upgrade your account to include a data package.

Still, while I anxiously waited for its arrival, I still wondered what the fascination is with having a blackberry! Ok, I must admit that three weeks into having my blackberry (or blueberry as my nephew calls it) I can honestly say that it was the best upgrade I've made in a while. The Tour is just about as intuitive as a phone can come. In less than two hours the phone was personalized to include everything that I wanted and needed in a phone. I literally felt as though my entire office was now in the palm of my hand. I was so impressed with the ease of use that I began to demonstrate all of the capabilities to my husband. It only took five days to convince my "I don't need a blackberry" husband to get one and he loves it as well! I never expected to ever hear him tell me how much he loves his phone but there he is professing his undying love on a daily basis.
