First BlackBerry Thunder OS pictures

First BlackBerry Thunder OS pictures
BlackBerry Sync has posted the first pictures of the BlackBerry Thunder in action. From the looks of things, there will be a strong media focus on the all-touchscreen device, and the interface is looking good. They note that it will run a carrier (Verizon) music store so there's a strong possibility it won't end up looking like this. Either way, the Thunder seems to be progressing along quite nicely.

I have so many questions about this phone! Does it support multi touch recognition? Exceleromiter? Electronic cumpase? Well I guess I only had three questions.

multi touch was patent by apple. Jobs said that in his Key note

20. unregistered

yeah Apple patented the gestures, you cannot patent the act of recognizing more than one touch

microsoft has had multi-touch hi def tables and media centers for years. LOOK IT UP!!! but comment 24 is right, they can patent their multi-touch guestures all they want. Nokia is also working on multi "touch" that is more like a sensor from a 2-3 in distance from the device. Let apple "patent" that technology.

I can confirm per Verizon insider Omie, that it does have an accelerometer. The compass and multi-touch we don't know.I've asked several times and he hasn't commented either way. Sounds like good news.

That sounds pretty stupid. who woiuld want to use their phone a few inches away from the actual screen.

Pretend? What in the world are you talking about? The Thunder has an accelerometer!

thats not completely true... HP is coming out w/ a touch screen labtop that incorporates multi-touch cuz they paid apple a buttload of $ for some of the rights to it.

when your on the phone and calling someone to conserve battery which usually stays on with regular phones it detects whether to turn off the back light or not

"Live pictures"? Are you drunk!? The only images of this device that have appeared anywhere on the internet have been CG renders, and not very detailed renders at that.
