    Well if our friend Alejandro Salomon (Salomondrin) is correct, then Research in Motion is working on a touchscreen phone with a real keyboard codename Mr. T.

    The details are a little light, ok almost nonexistent, but thatís good enough for me. A touchscreen BlackBerry with a full keyboard is my dream phone and I will personally sell a kidney on eBay to buy it.

    The one main item of note is that the keyboard will come from underneath and not be a flip out one like on the Sidekick.

    One quick note, the phone in the picture is something I made up and is NOT a real picture. However the picture of Mr. T is real. Just thought I would clear that up now.

    Speaking of Mr. T, I'm looking forward to the new A-Team movie with Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, and Jessica Biel.

    No one knows that for sure. I think they're smart enough to not make a phone that ugly I'd hope.

    I have heard the same thing and seen diagrams drawn up of the device. Looks pretty amazing and the touch screen has a new technology.

    Mr. T = Talladega.

    I hope it's a GSM device for AT&T!

    I just hope, and wish...The S2 on VZW, and Tour 2, AT&T only gets a 9700....common, really, lets step it up already!
