BlackBerry Bold 9800: New Pictures and OS 6 Preview

By Posted 24 May 2010, 04:20

Some exciting news for BlackBerry fans now, as a whole collection of screenshots have been leaked for the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider handset, which also give us a new look at BlackBerry OS 6.

As reported from BGR, the screenshots come to us courtesy of TheBerryFix, who have somehow managed to obtain this unannounced device before anyone else.

The model itself is thought to be an late prototype / early production unit (yes, we know what you’re thinking!), while rumors are suggesting that the Bold 9800 will be available either in June or July this year.

From the screenshots, we get a close-up view of the interface of BlackBerry OS 6, while there is also a nice image of the virtual QWERTY keyboard that you’ll have access to, aside from the slide-out physical option.

Take a look at the screenshots through the link and let us know your thoughts on this upcoming handset.
