Earlier this week, we talked about the rumor from Boy Genius Report suggesting an upcoming BlackBerry slider device. Well, pictures of such a product have emerged courtesy of BlackBerry Leaks. The blog posted clear photos of a handset with a portrait-style slide-down keyboard. This QWERTY keypad and dimensions appear to be very similar to a BlackBerry Curve, though the rumored phone does appear slightly thicker.
According to the author of the blog post, this product doesn't have the company's SurePress touch-screen technology. But the same article mentions that the device could not be turned on because of a faulty battery. As far as we know, SurePress doesn't kick in until the device is turned on, so we wonder if that could be the reason.
