So the touchscreen BlackBerry is still a ways off but Kevin @ CrackBerry has managed to snag some pics of the touchscreen live. One shot is of the keyboard in landscape mode which is full QWERTY. The second is in portrait mode with a screwy kind of SureType going on.
I really hope there is an option to choose between QWERTY and SureType in portrait mode! While SureType may be functional I find it nowhere near the convenience of a full QWERTY keyboard.
Kevin is also confirming that the whole touchscreen has a click on it when you push down with some haptics feedback. There is also a glass screen and multitouch features on the device. Check out Kevin’s full analysis at this link.
Pretty cool stuff. Just to end on a depressing note it looks like the device above is still composing in PlainText mode. Here I was hoping to see HTML email composition…
