    THE-COOL-GUY-REPORT: What's RIM Cooking These Days?

    It might sound like a joke to many, but RIM's new phone goes by the codename "Mr. T". Yep, you read correctly, Mr. T is the codename for one of their latest phones in development.

    What exactly is a "Mr. T"?

    Mr. T is a QWERTY Keyboard Slider the size of a Storm with a full touchscreen.

    This is not a rumor anymore, RIM is actually working on this phone full force, although its at a very early stage of development.

    Another thing I know about it is that the ON/OFF and SEND/CANCEL buttons are on the screen, although anything can change at this point, except the fact, of course, that we will be getting a Slider from RIM.

    Also, its not like a Sidekick, the keyboard here will come underneath the bottom of the phone, BUT then again, anything can change.

    The question here will be to everyone out there: Will this be a Storm 3 or a completely NEW device?

    What do you think?

    If that is the case, then I may have found my next blackberry, by the time it is out (with a little extra for shakedown) I'll be eligible or a new phone.
