the blackberry slider was absent from story land for a while but it has returned along with some more photos. the blackberry slider 9800 is revealed operation the blackberry os 6, so it's still on footstep to fitting the first rim call with the new os.
the photos are quires deprived - but still, they reinforce that the blackberry slider (doubtless not its actual style name) is operation blackberry os 6, however (wholly expectedly) a pre-circulate side. bb os 6 was estimated, along with some other interesting bits - touchscreen, but no surepress, and a 5mp camera with something called "liquid lens technology." this leaked neither confirms nor denies any of that. they do show the blackberry slider 9800 running on rogers, so we're trusty to get a gsm side.
we still don't know when the slider approach out although. however, if it will certainly be the first gadget to run os v6, then the blackberry slider 9800 should come out in q3 at the earliest(when bb os 6 is expected).
