There are leaked shots floating all around the interwebs supposedly of the BlackBerry 9000 The big news is that there is no touch screen. If these truly are pictures of the BlackBerry 9000 I have to say that I am a bit disappointed. Not so much because of the lack of a touch screen, but, because it would appear that RIM has gone back to that BlackBerry 8800 keyboard configuration where the keys are just too dag on close to each other.
I think that RIM hit the nail squarely on the head with the BlackBerry Curve, it’s fully QWERTY keyboard with good spacing between the keys, and the size of the device, just being a bit wider than the SureType BlackBerry Pearl devices.
If these are pictures of the BlackBerry 9000 lets hope that the keyboard feels a lot better than it looks.
There are pictures of the back and the inside of the BlackBerry 9000 after the jump…
