More Blackberry 9000 pictures

hal-9000.jpg This is so demeaning. RIM won’t give us any official word on the new Blackberry 9000, so we have to scavenge for whatever rumors and alleged pictures we can find on the internets. This one looks very real though. According to Bla1ze, not one but THREE of the new Blackberry 9000 have been offered on eBay. I just checked it and it seems that TWO of them are still available for GBP 399.99 each – while stocks last. ;-)

Personally, I don’t care for rumors or anything that is not certain and palpable. I won’t begin to care until RIM releases the damn thing officially AND I can visit a phone store and have the product in my hands. But I have a tech blog to run and at least there is a handful of detailed pictures in the product page on eBay. Maybe you can also shower the seller with questions and find out a little more about this mysterious Berry. The seller does seem to be looking for trouble anyway. :-D

Meanwhile, if you’re too lazy to read other tech news sites, I don’t mind telling you that rumors of a touchscreen Blackberry have been spreading like never before. Let me put it this way: these rumors have been around for quite some time, but for some reason it sounds like this time people think this is really going to happen. Mike Lazaridis is famous for disliking touchscreens and I am with him on this one, but I can’t deny that a lot of people in the forums express their craving for a touchscreen enabled Blackberry.

You must have seen the most famous picture of the hypothetical Blackberry 9000 all over the Web, published by The Boy Genius Report, or the one published by Crackberry.com:

Personally, I don’t want even want to hear about a touchscreen Blackberry and was looking forward to something a lot more like this:

What about you? Which one do you prefer? Are you all for touchscreens on Blackberries or would you simply pick an iPhone if you wanted one?

  1. I really like your version Luciano! :0)

  2. I like your “after” Curve better than the original.

    I’ve yet to see one of these alleged “9000” pictures that didn’t look like Photoshop to me.

  3. Firstly, the eBay auction has been withdrawn due to a “error in the listing”…

    Be interesting to know exactly what the “listing error was”.

    As for the two devices pictured above, I must say that the “touch-screen BlackBerry” does actually look quite nice (and extremely similar to the LG Shine KU970), but I’m pretty anti-touch-screen…

    Despite using them for YEARS, I’ve never had a touch-screen go wrong, but I dunno, there’s just something I don’t like and/or trust about them.

    The “extended” version of the BlackBerry Curve series pictured above though, is fantastic and in my opinion, exactly the sort of device that Research in Motion (RIM) should consider for future release…
