    My best guess would be late in Q4 of this year, probably just in time for the holidays.

    according to bbleaks:

    Yesterday, tech site VentureBeat reported that according to BlackBerry Partners Fund’s John Albright, the BlackBerry 9800 (aka the Slider) will hit the market August 15 on AT&T. This device was sort of a mystery to all BB addicts because it was unmarked by a carrier (except in the video where it showed AT&T), had BlackBerry 6 running fully, and even still has no name.

    If what Albright says is true than we can only wonder if this device will be the start of BlackBerry 6 or will it come with 5.0 and get an update later. Also the main selling-point with this device is the loss of SurePress. Now the phone’s touch interface is just like Android and iPhone, which is appropriate because those two are RIM’s main competitors.

    They will. I've heard there's a 9820, which falls into TMO's numbering scheme.

    This will annoy my daughter, she's with TMO and has just upgraded to the 9700 but she wanted a touch screen. If only she had waited a little longer

    Even if it's just for AT&T you can buy it unlocked or unlock it. Haha. Then use it on T-mo.

    Received our 1st test devices yesterday, and the OS 6.0.0.278 is now available for download ftom AT&T.
    Thankfully, all is well with our custom apps and BES servers so far.

    Oh, and it is the Torch. Stamped in largish letters on the back of the device.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.
