The team over at The Cellular Guru scored more pictures of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider. From what I am hearing this will be the device that launches with OS 6.0 so it should give us a pretty good taste of what is there. The pictures are a bit limited but there is one of the 9800 passing the Acid3 browser test in flying colors on a background webpage of the iPad . 🙂
It looks like RIM has thankfully dropped the SurePress crap on the 9800 touchscreen but it has not been officially confirmed yet. It will be interesting to see how a RIM engineered non-SurePress capacitive touchscreen will work. The keyboard is supposedly the same keyboard from the 9700 so RIM did not sacrifice on that to fit in the slider form factor.
So what do you think of the 9800?
Thanks Tom & Eric for the tip!
