Rumours hot up surrounding new BlackBerry slider

Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

blackberry logo.jpgBlackBerry makers RIM have been looking into putting out a BlackBerry Slider for some time. And while nothing has yet been confirmed, Boy Genius Report have some details on what they claim could be the rumoured slider phone.

Though no pics are available, it’s said to be looking a fair bit like a Palm Pre. The Blackberry slider will feature a portrait-orientated QWERTY and will be running a new version of the BlackBerry OS, 6.0.

Wi-Fi 802.11n standards will be supported, and the phone is expected to have a touchscreen. However, the resolution remains low, measuring up at just 360x 480.

As we said, these details are merely speculation, but you can bet your bottom dollar that someone in RIM HQ is busy working away at some sort of slider smartphone.
