    On the Loose! The BlackBerry Bold 9800 Take 3!


    I'm a little late getting this out to you guys so if you have seen the new images you could very well be looking at the next BlackBerry device to be released to carriers.
    Most of us have seen the earlier images from The Cellular Guru and got our curiosity going with the video of this device that The BerryFix had scooped up. The first functional slider. BlackBerry users wanted one and it's becoming obvious the talking heads are making this next Bold the talk of the BlackBerry community.
    These newly surfaced images are the best I have seen bar non, giving the best representation of the slider to date. And aside from the BlackBerry 9670 Clamshell (aka Kickstart), the 9800 certainly shows off BlackBerry OS 6.0 more than any of RIM's latest smartphones.























    What do you think?....Is it you?

    I hope that seeing a T-Mobile sim card is a sign of things to come.

    Looks very promising . . . while I wonder how come all these pictures have arrived at berrytimes . cn (http://berrytimes.cn/2010/06/04/blac...tails-in-foto/).

    Meanwhile, I would still dream of a BlackBerry device with a slider keyboard in landscape.

    Nah man, there is a lock button and a mute button-which is hard to make out because of the glare, but the deal with the left convenience button is quite inconvenient; one I use quite often. I really hate seeing that Tmo sim card there, I just signed another 2 year contract with Tmo and got the 9700 since my Storm 2 died and now I see this-a phone I'm waiting for, possibly launching on Tmo...oh well, I'll fork and spoon out the cash to get this.....maybe..... most likely....
    Ya know what's funny... I always thought that umm... dogs laid eggs, and I learned something today!!! :-)

    the real keyboard will be hard to press seeing that from the pics above... it's all flat and all close together... not like onyx and bold (i'm speaking of 9xxx)... I hope there will be a change before it's launched >.<

    Whether it will be my next phone will depend on weight and battery life.........

    The BlackBerry Slider/Torch 9800 shows it's face again


    We have seen, and talked about this device for a while now. The BlackBerry Slider/Torch/Bold 9800 is one of those devices that you either love or hate. The idea of owning a slider phone just puts a bad taste in my mouth, however RIM has come up with a pretty sleek design. Today Engadget puts it all out on the table for us and shows us every angle imaginable. We still have no word on when this will be released, but it looks like AT&T will be the first to carry it. Click below for the lineup of pictures and let us know whether or not this will be your next BlackBerry.
