BlackBerry Slider get its back and sides profiled
Guess what these pictures are of? Okay that's a stupid question, you already know it's the slider. BBLeaks has posted 3 new photos of the BlackBerry slider showing the device from each side, and the back.
The battery door looks very plain withing nothing of interest just by looking at it. But that doesn't mean there isn't any speculation to be had about the rest of it's back side. Namely the camera. Since there isn't any label (not that we expected one), it's rumored to be 5MP with a liquid lens. If RIM was smart, they would up the specs for all of the device's hardware. That would surely be another draw for people considering the slider, and possibly be a deciding factor.
The top and sides of the slider are also pictured with a Curve 8900 for comparison. This gives us a real sense of the size of the slider. It's clear that the slider is considerably thicker than the Curve 8900. Not that that's news to anyone, but now we have something to compare it to. I'd like to see it compared with a Pearl Flip though. The slider does bring the question of whether or not the thickness is something that we can get used to or not.
However, in the previous batch of photos, BBLeaks said that the battery was an FX-1. This has been determined to be in reality an FS-1 which is confirmed in the photo above.
I'm a little disappointed that there weren't any shots of the slider with the keypad slid out. That's certainly one of the areas that I wonder how nice it looks or not. Maybe BBLeaks can get a shot just for me of that? Though I know what we'd all really like to see, is the slider turned on.
