Hold on to your seats boys and girls, Research In Motion in partnership with AT&T are about to come out swinging. We have just received an invitation to an “exclusive BlackBerry event” taking place August 3rd in NYC. RIM isn’t coming out and saying it, but let’s not beat around the bush here… this is to announce the much-talked about BlackBerry 9800 touchscreen slider with BlackBerry OS 6. With the iPhone 4 and Android madness not slowing down anytime soon, it’s great to see BlackBerry get back in the ring. Let’s just hope they throw some knock out punches in this round.
