You're looking at pictures of what is said to be a prototype BlackBerry slider. Though the device was initially thought to be a scrapped prototype, numerous news outlets are reporting that the device you see above is close to the final form of RIM's first slider. Rest assured, Storm haters - the device will not have SurePress, nor will it sport the "Storm" moniker.
An additional picture is below. My take? I'm not so sure that I like the design, as it's conservative and very RIM-esque. That being said, more than half of RIM's userbase is now comprised of consumers, so it's time to get out of the conservative designs and opt for something a bit more edgy and progressive. We'll be sure to bring you more information as we get it, but in the meantime, what do you think of the device in its current form?
