Leaked images of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider shows off its WebKit-based browser
At this point in the game, we've seen our share of image leaks of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider, but the latest set offers up a glimpse of RIM's highly anticipated WebKit-based web browser. The team over at The Cellular Guru were able to take some detailed shots of the handset showing off that allegedly faster web browser running on BlackBerry OS 6.0. Based on the Acid3 test, the browser was able to achieve a perfect score of 100/100 that really makes it quite compelling to see in action – which can also smoke some of its competition right out of the water. Users have long been watching everyone bite RIM in the dust with some serious superior web browsers, but the sleeping giant looks to be coming out in a big way by essentially placing a lot of attention in this much sought out feature. In addition, you can see the “+” icon that'll no doubt allow you to open separate windows in the web browser that's similar to what others offer.

Too late, RIM. You may go the way of Palm shortly, thank all that freezing hot trash you put out over the last few years.

idk why theres so much rim hatred. they are one of the most popular smartphone manufacturer worldwide. I can't think of a better non-touchscreen smartphone on the market today.
