Research in Motion and AT&T are holding a joint press event next Tuesday, August 3rd, in NYC where it is expected that the BlackBerry 9800 Slider running BlackBerry 6 will be officially announced.

The BlackBerry 9800 Slider is currently rumored to hit AT&T on August 15th.  If that indeed turns out to be the launch date, it will be interesting to see the type of marketing that AT&T and RIM put behind the 9800.
