The unannounced newest BlackBerry codenamed the "Slider" is heard to hit the shelves this Summer/Fall. It will
utilize Blackberry's newest OS6. It will have a slide out full QWERT keyboard, a long with a touch screen, with a
full QWERTY touchscreen keyboard as well.

I'll hold out on the new iPhone 4 until this comes out... because BB > iPhone.

Blackberry and AT&T unveiled it today. $199 with a 2year contract is a killer price. It comes with
Blackberry's newest OS caled OS 6. It also comes with a 5mp camera.

My cousin tried it (works at AT&T), said it was wack compared to other smart phones. Especially the web browser.

My cousin tried it (works at AT&T), said it was wack compared to other smart phones. Especially the web browser.

I tried it out earlier at the store and I give it a 7.5/10. The web browser wasn't the best, but I don't use
my phone's internet browser much anyways. The iPhone, Droid, and HTC smartphones are better, but
the Blackberry isn't really catered to the younger crowd, which is what those phones are targeted to.

I really liked the new Blackberry 6 OS, along with the slide-out keyboard. The touchscreen was a bit laggy
at times, but I was fine with that. The 5mp camera is pretty good as well. My Blackberry Curve does
everything I need a phone to do. Looks like I'm getting the Torch next month when my contract expires.

If you're new to Blackberry, you'll either love it or hate it.
