Dakota (Magnum) photo surfaces on Twitter. But is it an old prototype?
What is this I see? It looks a lot like a BlackBerry 9000. But wait, where's the trackball? Yep that's correct; it's a touchscreen device with a full QWERTY keyboard. This is what appears to be the rumored Dakota (Magnum) device in all its glory. But before you get all excited about the sexy looks of it, keep in mind this is obviously an older prototype. It's not known for sure yet if the final product will be lacking a trackpad or not.
Last night Twitter user @cellguru posted these pics of the device that many of us are anxious to see. But notice that the design is much like the older Bold 9000 device. The Dakota will almost definitely be released with the looks of the newer style BlackBerry devices. But who cares, right? I'm just excited to see this phone...period. Imagine a world where keyboard and touchscreen users can coexist. It's Dakota and it appears that we might not have to wait all that long for it to become a reality. I'm really looking forward to seeing some more recent photos. I would love to own this device!
