You might have caught our report on the much-rumored sliding BlackBerry device a couple days back. Some pictures just surfaced at BBLeaks, and while we’re not able to confirm their authenticity at this time, they do match up with the product that has been described to us. Sadly, if the photos are real (we’re hoping for RIM’s sake they aren’t), it truly seems like RIM really is stuck in 2005.

UPDATE: BBLeaks told us they’re getting clearer images and video/s. This might be the real deal, folks. Single tear.
