BlackBerry 9300, 9670 and the 9800 appear on video
Salomondrin, who has been able to get his hands on new BlackBerry models before, has managed to pick up a trio of unreleased handsets. The models are the BlackBerry Curve 9300, the 9670 flip model and the much discussed 9800 touchscreen/slider. The latter model will also give you a look at BlackBerry OS 6 in action. Of the three, there has been a lot of focus on the 9800 which appears to take what worked on the touchscreen Storm and adds the Bold's outstanding physical QWERTY keyboard as a portrait facing slider. Additionally, the new OS is expected to take the BlackBerry handset closer to the multimedia experience that Android, webOS and iOS users receive. Finally, the 9800 is expected to feature RIM's new WebKit browser that recently scored a perfect 100 on the Acid3 test. As we reported, it looks like the latter will end up being launched by AT&T and the WSJ recently said that the 9800 would be released in Q3.

these phones look great I love the slider and the clamshell. its about time something new came out of Blackberry's camp even though the devices look similar to other blackberrys. If either the slider or the clamshell hit ATT (which I hope they will leave them as they are) I will probably upgrade out of my 9700

Blackberry take forever to release their phones...good grief. Their phone are going to be competing with other Blackberries.

The 9800 looks pretty sweet!! Not sure if this phone is it or not, but if RIM would put out a phone that covers everything from the hard core businessman to the extreme multimedia and gaming nut they would really make a statement!! On the other hand, that dude seriously needs to clip his fingernails though...long fingernails on a guy are just downright nasty...!!!
