    And you can't make the argument that it's an extremely old prototype since it has a trackpad.

    i'm confused why people don't like it. i for one like the design.

    what do you expect them to do? it's a blackberry slider. if you were in the market for a blackberry slider, what were you expecting? assuming they made it a portrait, how many other styles could it have been? i'm sure it'll look better in your hand, but what's so bad?

    isn't the OS more what people should care about? i think it has potential of being a great device.

    The whole lower-front portion is disgusting. And why do people think RIM NEEDS to make a slider? Why do you think Apple will never do that? Because they now it's impossible to make it functional and attractive. Maybe RIM should do the same and forget about the slider market.

    how can you judge the phone based on that pic alone? and i don't think they "NEED" to, but many people want it, so it would increase market share if they execute it properly. that is yet to be seen until it is released.

    I only said the phone was ugly, I didn't say it didn't work well. A slider could sell very well, but it needs to be perfect. People wanted a touchscreen and look what happened with that. RIM got embarrassed with the Storm. I just hope they don't do the same with any slider device they release. A slider is a TON more risky than just a plain touchscreen. You should at least have the touchscreen aspect of it nailed down first (which they don't) before you start trying to incorporate a sliding keyboard.

    Looks like the slow, disowned spawn of a curve and the pixie if you ask me. Making a slider doesn't mean you can recycle existing pieces of existing phones. You need to build on the strengths of the respective form factor - slider= big screen, small thin keyboard, but you have to encourage use of the screen. Sadly, RIM hasn't really learned the innovate and improve lesson that others have, I have a sinking feeling that the screen is another hack of the 380x460 we've seen for 2 years now.

    I hope this is an early prototype and someone with the ability to scrap or modify this design reads these threads.

    God....that crap is fugly! The reason why I went to blackberry was because I wanted a qwerty bar phone "without any type of slider", even when it lacks a touchscreen. many ppl told me bb suck compare to some other platform out there, but I stood behind my bb with pride. But these picture are just a major turnoff. totally made me lost fate in RIM.

    Just my 2 cents

    I think it would do well with people that don't want to give up the keyboard. This might be the Magnum/Dakota for the GSM carriers. I judge sliders on how they look when the keyboard is hidden. And that phone looks fine to me. I have a touch pro2 now and it's nice to have the option of a physical keyboard for long emails. I'll be getting that BB if it comes out.

    Who's going to force you to get this phone then? Stick with your phone. It targets a different portion of the market that want touchscreen and physical keyboard.

    I don't understand why you people get mad or feel some way about others reactions and opinions of this device. We don't even KNOW if its real or not. Everyone has an opinion state yours if you don't like someones keep it moving. I hate it.. Its ugly. But that's just how I feel

    I agree with you there Rizzleman ....barban there getting all personal cuz I call it fugly? I'm just speaking my opinion. I'm sure ppl are fond of this type of phone....just not me. And I wonder how it feels...wouldn't it be a little heavy/long with the top/front part slide out showing the keyboard since the size of the screen is quite large. *Shrug*

    Who is getting mad? It just doesn't make sense to post about something you have no interest in. The posts are always the same.."I bought a BB because of the current form factor....RIM sucks for making something else" That's different than saying that phone is ugly.

    I do think it would be very big and bulky. From the looks of the screen it would probably be a larger one. And the slider would make it a bit weird. But who knows? I guess we'll see..

    If RIM does release a slider, I hope it is another phone and a replacement for the Storm series.
