Awhile back we brought the Scoop to you that Backup Assistant was expected to be released by Verizon on March 9th for BlackBerry smartphones. Obviously the date we reported was a little off. After my OS upgrade this morning I had a new icon, and wouldn’t you know it it was for Backup Assistant. Now, we can’t confirm it is on any device other than the Tour right now and according to our sources the Tour is all that is scheduled for initial release. If you have it showing up on a different device, please let us know! Remember, if the icon is not showing up on your device for you to download the application, resend your service books and it should show up. You can read more about the Backup Assistant service on Verizon’s site.
