New sliding Blackberry gunning for the Sidekick tween market?

20 03 2008


Blackberries have always been mundane, utilitarian business devices with little to no appeal for young people.  They’re more of a badge of adulthood;  receiving one means your dreams of youth have been squashed and you’re locked into a cubicle calculating expense reports.  RIM may be trying to change that image.  Check out these concept pics of a possible Blackbery 9000 series device with a slideout keyboard, a-la Sidekick fame.  There’s also a rumored optical touchscreen which RIM has supposedly been developing for a while.  If they emblazoned these with plastic diamonds and anime stickers the kids might just eat these up.

i have the storm and i always wished the blackberry came out with this type of style full keypad because some times a touch screen just DOESNT CUT IT… i want to feel buttons! but if the style of the phone was upgraded and/or come in different color (ex. WHITE) i would absolutely buy this phone. Also if it was carried by Verizon id be happy haha =) thx
