    Definitely not because this design was patented awhile back, way before the HTC models were released. What took it so long to resurface again I dunno but we will find out.

    Full keyboard is good to have but honestly, BB is losing its battle against newer smart phones. I think (and if this rumor is true), this is a half harted effort from RIM to get back into competition unless it also revamp its OS to do what new Android phones do.

    Blackberry lost me. I was thinking of giving the Storm 2 a chance to replace my World Phone, but the OS was not a huge improvement. I wanted a better web browser and a more open environment for app development. I am thrilled with my Droid so far. It has surpassed my expectations. And while the app store isn't even close to the iPhone app store, I would suspect that the gap is going to narrow quickly.

    This slider bb is known with the code names Blackhawk/Mr. T/Talladega, features a OLED HD screen technology,(support for 3d graphics, full open GL support, possible with a 5mpx camera, flash support with the infamous web kit browser, supposedly with a 1 mhz processor and new tech chip set, wifi and a few more goodies, present is on its first stages of testing, the graphic shown here is what was supposed to be the storm 1.

Seriously, RIM needs to stop focusing on the hardware and focus on what the device has to offer as whole and not just the looks. It's like trying to make a honda civic look like a Ferrari but you know what that civic will only deliver what a civic will normally deliver and not a ferrari; it may look like it, very beautiful and attractive but performance wise will definitely bite the dust. My honest opinion about this shenanigan.
    well said.

    with the release of the Bold 2 and the Storm 2, imo, RIM has hit its peak of handset-to-OS performance. Any further releases based on this same OS platform would just be cosmetic changes and I would see no reason to upgrade. the time has come for a revolution to be made to the software side of things so that the hardware can compliment the room that would be made for growth.

    they've squeezed all they could out of this dated platform and I applaud them for that, but now it's time to change.

    It'll be just my fortune that they release this with a new OS and all new features but T-Mobile won't get it until a year after everyone else :cry: I'm gonna just get the Storm 2 when I get a chance and unlock it on T-Mobile IF it allows me to utilize EDGE.
    My Focus may become Jaided but never my determination...

    I like the concept but it looks a lot like some other options out there. If the OS is still the same then I would have a hard time investing in a change from my curve. I have really been intrigued by the Pre and the HTC phones. If the next BB doesn't come with a better OS I may well look elsewhere.

    I don't think the OS will be the same unless this phone comes out soon. Plus people don't forget all the news that came from the developer's conference on all the changes coming to the BlackBerry platform. Together with new device designs like this, we can expect big things I think.

    +1 sadly I agree.

    They've learned from, and adopted the Apple style.

    I've seen them waste too many wonderful opportunities.

    Deliver less than ready for prime time devices.

    And act as though they are Apple, where many customers will simply buy into anything put in front of them.

    Then to make it worse, they defend RIM as though it was one of their loved ones.
