Details of RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry Slider (think Palm Pre…)

February 28, 2010 | By | 3 Comments

I don’t know how I missed this over the weekend, but Boy Genius scooped up some great tips about RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry Slider. When you first think of a sliding BlackBerry you might think of a Storm with slide of keyboard, however BGR’s tipster claims the device will be designed more like the Palm Pre. Apparently this device is set to run OS 6.0, feature a display size similar to the current Storm series (not sure if it will click with Surepress), and it will feature Wi-Fi 802.11n. Other than that it’s said to be a GSM/HSPA device, and will be heading to Verizon for any sort of exclusive… See below for the exact report:

Here’s exactly what Boy Genius knows:

  • It’s a portrait-oriented slider. While most people assume a device with slideout keyboard would end up being something like HTC’s devices, we’ve been told this particular handset is more like the Palm Pre in terms of layout.
  • The phone will run BlackBerry OS 6.0
  • The rumored device will 100% support Wi-Fi 802.11n
  • The resolution unfortunately has not improved, it is still 360×480.
  • No word on if this will have a touch screen, but we’d assume so, and our source alluded to this possibly being what the rumored BlackBerry Magnum/Dakota evolved into. Not saying there won’t be a Bold-like device with touchscreen, optical trackpad, and physical keyboard, but this might be released first.
  • If it does have a touch screen, this could in fact be the mythical BlackBerry Storm slider — picture a Storm 9520 with a slide up Bold-esque keyboard.
  • The phone will not be a Verizon exclusive — it’s supposed to be a GSM/HSPA device.

The image pictured above is NOT a leak… its a mock up of what the BlackBerry Slider could look like.
