BlackBerry 9800 slider replacement parts tip imminent debut

Jul 16, 2010

RIM are yet to officially confirm the BlackBerry 9800 slider, despite us having seen it in various leaked photoshoots and videos, but already you can pick up replacement parts for the smartphone.  CIO spotted that retailer Truesupplier is currently offering an OEM replacement keyboard for the 9800 slider.

Now, that certainly suggests that the handset is due for a reasonably imminent release, falling nicely into line with talk of an August or early-September debut.  The smartphone is tipped to land on AT&T's network in the US, offering a touchscreen display and RIM's new BlackBerry OS 6.
