The BoyGenius has always been pretty reliable when it comes to details about upcoming BlackBerry devices. He just posted some details one of his contacts told him about the upcoming BlackBerry slider phone idea that RIM is toying around with. This is not the first we have heard about it and will probably not be the last.
The contact had this to say about the slider:
- The slider will be portrait oriented kind of like the Palm Pre
- The phone will run OS 6.0 (Not sure what that means)
- It will support 802.11n Wi-Fi
- Resolution of 360×480
- This might just be a evolution of the Magnum/Dakota models
- It will be a GSM device not a Verizon exclusive
What do you think? Personally I really like the 9700 device design. Do we really need to shake it up again?
