No, that wasn’t a joke. According to @Salomondrin, RIM is working on a new BlackBerry that is codenamed “Mr. T”. Here’s what Sal had to say about it:
Mr. T is a QWERTY Keyboard Slider the size of a Storm with a full touchscreen.
This is not a rumor anymore, RIM is actually working on this phone full force, although its at a very early stage of development.
Another thing I know about it is that the ON/OFF and SEND/CANCEL buttons are on the screen, although anything can change at this point, except the fact, of course, that we will be getting a Slider from RIM.
Also, its not like a Sidekick, the keyboard here will come underneath the bottom of the phone, BUT then again, anything can change.
This begs the question: Will this be the “Storm 3,” a version of the Magnum (which was rumored to be a touchscreen/keyboard device), or an entirely different BlackBerry?
Also, I’m glad it won’t be like a Sidekick and the idea of a BlackBerry slider is interesting, but will it rock? Let me know what you think in the comments!
