I must admit it looks soooo much like the "fake" picture published at the weekend.
im still not sure it will be anything like that but I want one whatever it looks like! :Eyecrazy:
It is the same picture, look here is the thread.

The concept is interesting though, and I don't think that will be the final look, so we really shouldn't be making judgments now.
I don't hate it actually. The idea of a keyboard and touch would be pretty cool. I would check it out. Now the real question, how far away from seeing it on the shelf?

Looks just like a Verizon XV6600 that I had several years ago. Sure hope the battery life has improved! I know there are a couple used ones for sale on eBay if anyone wants to try one out. It was my first touchscreen PDA and it ran Windows Mobile. The slider worked well too whenever I got tired of the onscreen keyboard. This isn't innovation. This is copycat, plain and simple. Maybe the Audiovox design patent expired?

Good point. As long as it is not much thicker than the current STorm, I'd buy it. Too bad T-Mobile probaly won't get it :baby:

It does not look thick at all, if you look at the sliding screen, it looks to be the same thickness as the storm or maybe even thinner since it seems that the beveled edges look closely down to that table.
I think the idea of a hybrid blackberry is awesome but if they do it, they need to get rid of the trackpad, and call buttons and just have a full touch screen on the front with a full keyboard.
