Sure we’ve already seen BlackBerry 6 in action thanks to an epic 17 minute walkthrough, but that video featured a touchscreen ‘Berry. What’s life going to be like on the new OS for those of us that prefer non-touchscreen devices from RIM? Well we know now, as the folks at Driphter have posted a lengthy rundown of BlackBerry 6 running on that crazy clamshell 9670. We get that the prospect of sinking 10:27 of your life into watching a video of an unreleased device isn’t for everyone, but if you’ve got the stomach time for it or are just a BlackBerry fanatic, then hit the jump to check out the goodness.
We know a lot of you are dying to try out BlackBerry 6, but until RIM releases it sometime in the “next calendar quarter“, we think this 16 minute and 45 second walkthrough of the OS running on a 9800 slider will tide you over. Unfortunately the narration isn’t in English, but if you can look beyond that hit up the jump and check out the video.
Alright, BlackBerry fans, this is truly something to get excited about. Building upon the excitement generated this weekend by a slew of new images of the upcoming 9800 slider, a video walkthrough of the device today cropped up on YouTube. The video does a pretty good job showing off the device and some of the features of the BlackBerry 6 OS and is only 3 minutes and 39 seconds in length, so the way we see it, you really have no reason for passing this by. We mean, RIM is pretty much guaranteed to have the video pulled in quick order. Oh, and notice the AT&T splash screen? We told you.
Can’t get enough BlackBerry slider action? Well today’s your lucky day, as a bunch of new images of the handset have leaped out by way of TheBerryFix. Showing off what looks to be a late prototype / early production model, the images give us a pretty good glimpse of not only the handset itself, but some of the new niceties of the BlackBerry 6 OS including a virtual QWERTY keypad, a clone of Cover Flow in the media player, and, of course, the much-hyped WebKit browser. Anyone else excited to see this sucker launch on AT&T during the June/July timeframe? Click on through for a few more pics.
One of our BlackBerry connects sent us in a nice treat a little while ago… it is the first ever live video of the mythical BlackBerry Bold sliding device coming out of Waterloo. The quality of the video is also decently clear, so check it out, okay? We’re still trying to confirm the model number of the handset, but it’s definitely in the Bold lineup as has been rumored, and now confirmed via the branding on the back of the phone. Oh, the device is also running OS 6.0. Video is after the break! More →
With rumors and rumors of a clamshell BlackBerry device going back ages, we finally have some confirmation on the phone, and in a big way, too. Not only do we have the first photos ever of this BlackBerry 9670, and not only is it the first BlackBerry clamshell ever seen (we don’t really count the Pearl Flip), but it’s also running the first ever photos of OS 6.0 (on a device). We’d love to tell you all about this brand new BlackBerry device… after the jump! More →
If you’re a BlackBerry fan, there is probably not a single thing you have been looking forward to more than what we have right here — screenshots and full details of RIM’s upcoming operating system, OS 6.0. One of our AT&T sources has not only showed us the brand new OS, but has also given us some screenshots that we could share. Since we have seen OS 6.0 in action first hand, we will break it down for you guys, along with all the other screenshots, after the break! More →
Take this as you will, but we’ve been told the images floating around of “BlackBerry OS 6.0″ are nothing more than concept mockups that were originally made for RIM’s MWC presentation.
Remember that BlackBerry slider? BBLeaks got a hold of some higher resolution pics, and there’s even a BlackBerry 8900 thrown in next to it for size comparisons. Hit the break for one more picture and to jump on over for the rest of the shots! Have these new pictures changed what you think of what’s said to be pretty early hardware? More →
This isn’t confirmed, but with RIM rumored to be exploring sliding-QWERTY devices for a pretty long time, one of our BlackBerry connects dropped some info on us and we wanted it to share it. Here’s what we know: More →
One of our most-solid BlackBerry connects has just dropped word that internally, RIM is starting to work on OS 6.0. More →
