New sliding Blackberry gunning for the Sidekick tween market?

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.

Maybe not just the kids. Anyone who needs to make a long email or works mostly with texting may enjoy this phone. I’ll buy it, thats for sure.

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
