BlackBerry Tour 9630 returns high as 50% claims analyst [UPDATED]

According to research done by analyst David Eller at TownHall Investment Research, return rates of BlackBerry Tour 9630 handsets to Sprint and Verizon might be as high as 50-percent.  The most frequent complaint is believed to be problems with the QWERTY smartphone's trackball, but somewhat bizarrely Eller also claims that people are "complaining about the sensitivity of the touch screen".  We'd suggest that's probably because the Tour doesn't actually have a touchscreen.

Sprint and Verizon may be keeping relatively quiet about the BlackBerry Tour 9630's functionality, but unsurprisingly RIM themselves are pretty keen to get the news out there about exactly what their new "world phone" can do.  The smartphone is primarily intended to use CDMA EVDO Rev.A connectivity, but it also packs UMTS/HSPA 2100MHz support and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE for use when abroad.

Elsewhere there's a 480 x 340 resolution display, 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and image stabilization, and 256MB of onboard storage with a microSD card to augment that.  The Tour 9630 also has GPS with support for photo geotagging.
