BlackBerryBold 9800 Slider stars in 16 minute video that will have you drowning in drool
On Friday, we showed you some new still shots of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider. Now, we have a full 16 minutes of video of the highly anticipated device for you to watch. Break out your Chinese-English dictionary folks, because the narration is not in English. What you are looking at is OS 6 which appears zippy and the see through icons look great. Despite the excitement of the EVO 4G launch and the impending introduction of the next-gen iPhone, there is something  about the 9800 that is out buzzing both phones-at least as far as photographers are concerned. The scrolling looks smooth as silk. We even get to see pinch-to-zoom in the photo gallery. Note how the phone is running on China Mobile's GSM network which is another possible confirmation that AT&T will be offering this handset later this year. Maybe it is too early to judge, but from the looks of things, RIM finally got it right this time. Hopefully soon we will get to see some video of the new WebKit browser.

really? I don't understand the obsession with Megan Fox... is it just becuase she starred in perhaps the nerdiest film in the decade so blogging nerds like us explode... i just don't see it.

She is hot and full of herself and that is why she will not be in Transformers 3.....she was not very well liked by her cast and the, though, as the blonde replacing her just does not do it for me....

Not drooling, but I must say, BB has definately stepped up their game. With all of the android platforms out, the BB lineup was just not what most consumers were buying, this should definately give it a more "fun" feel for the device, and thus increasing sales for BB devices that carry this OS. GJ BB keep it comin.

Not only not drooling but there is nothing new, every new feature is borrowed from some plataform. Not creative at all. And with some cool new UI in the market, like windows phone 7 series, or android, this new OS 6 interface is too ugly, too outdated ...

It's nothing new or interesting but at least it doesn't have a resistive touchscreen. When it started and the guy had a stylus in his hand i thought it was and i was about to laugh.

Blackberry is palm all over again. They need to radicaly change their OS if they are going to stay in the game.
