BlackBerry 9800 Slider Gets Spotted In the Wild, Could See a November Launch

Labels: , ,

Apparently, a RIM employee has been testing out the new BlackBerry 9800 in the wild and it's been snapped in the photo above. It could be photoshopped so we'll really just have to take this guy's word for it. RIM is looking to release this smartphone with BB OS 6.0 this November if he's to be believed.Below is the story of how he saw the smartphone, via CracyBerry.

A few weeks ago I was at my kids event and saw some person sporting a slider....no big deal I thought until I saw him slide it and saw the BB Logo....I asked him it that was the new BB Slider and he yep. Played with it a few, it was running 6.0. No idea what build. He basically said this would be out in November. I asked how he had and he is in public relations for RIM here in Chicago. I was a huge BB fanboy and if I had not gone Android, I would be creaming. The UI was nice, very smooth and FRIGGIN Fast. Again, I mean no disrespect, I can not answer any questions, just here to say those that are staying BB will definitely enjoy.
Was going to post this weeks ago, but had no proof, and well even with my post count, some would be skeptical. However, weeks later we were together at an "event" taking pictures of our kids after wining a "game" and just saw that I had a pic of it.
It is very small, feels very solid, and again if I had not experienced Android I'd want this phone.
