November 18, 2009

Rumour has it Research In Motion (RIM) will be launching a BlackBerry slider - complete with touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, and updated browser.

Analysts at Kaufman Bros are indicating it could be cross between a touchscreen BlackBerry Storm2 and a physical keyboard BlackBerry. The firm said this addresses two of RIM's key weaknesses – form factor and web browser.

There is not much information available at this time, but the prototype - the BlackBerry 9900 (‘Pluto’) - is expected to be released some time in 2010.
