BlackBerry 9800 shows up in a photo shoot, promises to get officially recognised soon

25 Jun

Engadget has scored a handful of live shots of what seems to be pretty final prototype of the BlackBerry 9800, enroute to At&T. As expected, the 9800 is a portrait slider phone with a full touchscreen that slides upwards to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. It is running BlackBerry OS 6.0 and seems to be the size of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 albeit a bit thicker due to the slider form-factor. Hopefully, Research In Motion (RIM) has learnt its lessons with the Storm and the Storm 2 and will give the clickable touchscreen a miss in the 9800. We are not sure when RIM would announce it but judging from the pictures, the device does look ready for some prime time action. Bring it on, we say!
