Pre-order the super studly BlackBerry 9800 before Tuesday's introduction
As we reported, this coming Tuesday, BlackBerry and AT&T plan on introducing the BlackBerry 9800 Slider. This device features a touchscreen like a Storm and a QWERTY keyboard like the Bold. The latter slides out in portrait orientation. Featuring the new multimedia-centric BlackBerry 6 OS and a new WebKit browser, this phone has turned into one of the most anticipated handsets this year. What if you could pre-order the phone now, before it is even introduced? A store based in New York City, MobileCity Online is accepting pre-orders right now.

For a non-contract price of $599.99, MobileCity will reserve you a BlackBerry 9800. According to the web site, this is $100 off the actual retail price of 699.99. There is no precise shipping date because, after all, until Tuesday's announcement there is no such phone to sell. The last word we had on the name is that the device will be called the BlackBerry Torch 9800 although we won't know for sure until everything becomes official. For those BlackBerry fans, this phone seemingly will give you all of the usual BlackBerry features but also presents a first rate web surfing experience similar to what you might have on an  Apple iPhone, Motorola DROID X or a Palm Pre. Learning from the problems that they had with the Storm, BlackBerry has also beefed up the multimedia capabilities of the device. If you want to be the first on your block to pre-order the phone, here is your chance. Or, you can wait until Tuesday like everyone else and see what AT&T and BlackBerry have to say.

Verizon has not done as well with Blackberry, but they may change when they get their first pseudo 4G/3G GSM phone. Blackberry has to do something to stem the tide as many customers and big business are going the iSHEEP, err....iPHONE way.

I dont understand how the iPhone and "iSheep" always seems to get brought up by you stupid Android/Verizon fanboys. You're an idiot. On another note, I am really interested to see what this phone can do. I Love BB just hope they step it up a bit in the web browsing and multimedia department
