Will touch BlackBerry come as an iPhone rival?

Will touch BlackBerry come as an iPhone rival?
In an article concerning BlackBerry's strategy, the NY Times is quoting "two independent developers writing software for coming R.I.M. devices" that a touchscreen BlackBerry is in the works. It is yet unknown if it will have a hardware QWERTY just as the rest of its phone or will be an all-touch phone. However, known as the "Apple Killer" it is sure it will be consumer oriented device.

With the release of the Pearl and Curve series, the brand now offers non-professional features such as camera, memory card slot, multimedia player and headphones jack, clearly pointing out it cares about the consumer market. However, iPhone offers both Microsoft's corporate email and a bunch of other features, such as desktop-like Internet browser and advanced multimedia player. This way, most people who require more than an email client, prefer the Apple iPhone to any of the BlackBerry devices. The manufacturer is obviously trying to change this, as we've seen in the contemporary looking interface running on one of its rumored devices, so a touch-device also sounds realistic.
