BlackBerry Slider caught in wild again

After its first blurry sighting, the BlackBerry Slider has shown up again in a new set of photos this time looking far clearer.  According to BBLeaks the device - which won't power on due to a "bad battery" - lacks the physically-clicking SurePress display of previous touchscreen BlackBerry devices, and from the photos we can see that RIM have fitted a large touchscreen and QWERTY in roughly the same bulk as the BlackBerry 8900.

BlackBerry slider: touchscreen, WiFi-N & HSPA?

BlackBerry slider: touchscreen, WiFi-N & HSPA?

The talk of a BlackBerry slider smartphone continues to bubble, and BGR's sources reckon they have some fresh information on the matter.  The in-development device is apparently a portrait-orientation slider, more similar to the Palm Pre in form-factor than it is to the more common side-sliding QWERTY handsets, and it's likely to have a touchscreen along with the pull-out 'board.  In fact the source reckons this particular BlackBerry is what the ongoing Magnum/Dakota project - which paired a keyboard, touchscreen and optical joystick - evolved into.

That would leave the unnamed new device as pretty much a BlackBerry Storm 9520 with a slide-up keyboard similar to the BlackBerry Bold.  Other specs include WiFi 802.11n - "100% support" insists the source - and a 360 x 480 display.  Software is expected to be BlackBerry OS 6.0, and - best of all - this isn't going to be a Verizon exclusive; RIM's first slider will be a GSM/HSPA device.

The image is from CrackBerry where writer Kevin Michaluk notes he also has a set of tips on the device that make it a good indicator of what's to come from RIM in 2012. Rounded corners looking like the PlayBook and a higher density pixel array through the display are but two of the innovations coming down the chute.

AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider arriving June to take on iPhone HD?

RIM's BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider looks to be going head to head with the fourth-generation iPhone HD this coming June, with BGR hearing from several of their sources at the company that AT&T are ramping up for a release of the touchscreen QWERTY handset in the same month as Apple's next phone is expected to arrive.  In fact, they're sounding pretty gung-ho about the launch; AT&T have apparently ordered more than 1,000,000 units.
