We’ve got some more pictures of the upcoming BlackBerry slider to add to the pile, notably showing off the on-screen keyboard. It was hard to tell at first if the BlackBerry 9800 was going to include a touchscreen in addition to the trackpad and physical keyboard, but this picture confirms it.
A few of the other pictures show around the OS, including the media player, the upgraded Webkit browser, and the new podcasts app.We can guess the BlackBerry Bold 9800 will have an HVGA display, Wi-Fi 802.11n, 4 GB of on-board storage, 512 MB of RAM, and OS 6.0. Unfortunately, the only rumoured release date we have right now is June for AT&T.
These are probably the sharpest pictures of the BlackBerry 9800 we’ve seen to date, and the most we have seen of OS 6.0 in action. There are plenty of manufacturers that include a touchscreen, physical keypad, and directional input on their phones, but this is the first time we’re seeing all three together on a BlackBerry.
