*picture not accurate*
In the past few days we've been hearing talks about a new Blackberry device codenamed "Blackhawk". Many people have shot this rumor down but now according to our BlackberryOS Ninja, it is confirmed and DOES exist. It does feature OLED, full slide out qwerty keyboard as well as touchscreen. It is also to be rumored as the "Storm Slider" that was being talked about. The picture above is not the best picture and was an early prototype. Our Ninja stated that even though the picture is not the most current one the "Blackhawk" still looks pretty close to the one above. RIM had planned on doing a "slider" phone in the past and stopped testing/production on it until now. It is slated to be released late 2010. Personally, I don't know how I feel about a Blackberry slider phone.
Update : member CJohnson has shown that the image that was posted which was claimed to be the prototype of an early staged Blackhawk looked very very similar to the Samsung i730 and makes me believe as well that the picture is not accurate. We are still sticking with our confirmation that the Blackhawk WILL look similar to that with the slide out keyboard and will still be out late 2010.
