The team over at BerryTimes have posted more pictures of the BlackBerry 9800 Slider. Personally, I can’t wait until I can get my hands on one so that I can see it for myself.
BlackBerry Bold 9800
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.

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.

According to Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam, Research in Motion may be among the first manufacturers next year to offer a device on Verizon’s new Long Term Evolution (LTE) network that they are rolling out later this year.
Verizon released a video of their LTE in action at a Boston Pizza shop last week and the network saw download speeds of 8.55 Mbps. A BlackBerry with that kind of speed begs for streaming video, so, it will be interesting to see if the first LTE BlackBerry will have a full touchscreen like on the BlackBerry Storm or like the new BlackBerry 9800 Slider rumored to be coming out on AT&T in June.
BGR has posted what is believed to be the first ever video of the BlackBerry Slider online. Not sure what the model number will be, possibly the 9800, but the BlackBerry Slider will most probably fall under the BlackBerry Bold line.
