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.
