Rumor has it that Research in Motion could release as many as 6 new BlackBerry devices before the end of the year. It would appear that handset designers at RIM clearly follow the Mantra stick with what works. Out of the 6 devices listed to be coming out in the 2nd half of 2010, 1 maybe 2, do I actually find interesting.
BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider
CrackBerry has probably the best looking pictures of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider, rumored to hit AT&T by months end, to hit the web yet. I have no intention on moving to AT&T to get this device, however, I must say what an awfully good looking device the Bold 9800 Slider is.
If the June release rumors are true, we should, unless Apple AT&T is going the Verizon route and officially announcing the Bold 9800 Slider less 24 hours before the time of it’s release, start to hear official word on this device any time now.
The upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider still needs a bit of polish around the edges, however, the new device and BlackBerry 6 look just about ready to go. As I’ve said before, BlackBerry 6 looks like it is designed to run on a BlackBerry with a Touchscreen. We know that 6 will run on the BlackBerry Bold 9700, Bold 9650, and the yet to be officially announced BlackBerry Clamshell 9670. I’m anxious to see BlackBerry 6 running on a device with a physical QWERTY keyboard only.

It seems like pictures of the BlackBerry Storm 9800 Slider are leaking everywhere. The BerryFix posted arguably the best looking shots yet.
TheCellularGuru.com was able to get their hands on live shots of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider running the new WebKit based BlackBerry Browser. If BlackBerry 6 has any legs at all, this device will be a big hit.

BGR is reporting that the BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider is coming exclusively to AT&T sometime in the second half of June. They have confirmed that over one million units have been ordered which is a bit surprising seeing how AT&T usually focuses on nothing but the new iPhone during June.
The Bold 9800 slider will, of course, run BlackBerry 6 and be one of the first BlackBerry devices to launch with the new OS as compared to having to be upgraded to it.
