Having been caught in the wild earlier this month, the BlackBerry Magnum has shown up again for a quick video play.  Pairing a QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen display - long considered the Holy Grail by some RIM-lovers - this particular prototype lacks anything so helpful as an OS, but will still power on.

Going by the details from the last leak, however, there's no certainty that the Magnum you see here will ever actually reach shelves in production form.  Instead, this is believed to be a prototype stage along the path to the upcoming BlackBerry Dakota, which will also have the fetching touchscreen/QWERTY combo.
