only thing that looks different to me is the keyboard...but I don't own that model either. I wouldn't order it.

Of course I wouldn't either. I found it rather humorous

captthomason 12-29-2007 09:23 AM

Yes sir

TeritaM 12-29-2007 09:44 AM

looks like a slackberry slurve...

The keyboard looks like it may be from a Motorola Q. This is looks like either an example of very clever photoshopping or someone Frankensteining case components together.

Lunk is this your BB?

It's worth $5 to see what the heck it is.

I morphed a Sidekick with an iPhone, then morphed the iSKphone with a 8320 and this is what I got... Pretty kewl huh?

It's funny on 2 different posts, one post says this is the 9000 and people say it is awesome. The other says it is a fake and everyone says it

here is a link>>> BlackBerry 9000 series spy shot revealed? - Engadget

I don't think this a 9000 series BlackBerry. My guess would more be like a CDMA Curve. Maybe wishful thinking. I use CDMA.

funny how public opinion differs based on the description.

IT does look like a Q/8800 mash up.
With of course the iphone-esque banding around the outside.

Interesting how it took a few days for the news sites to catch on. ez, faster than all of them.

No surprise there!

Very funny how crackberry,bgr and engadget all picked up on it.

Honestly does anyone even think it looks like the quality we come to expect from RIM. It looks half a:)_ed!

veks 01-01-2008 01:29 PM

it does look half as_, thats why im hoping its the 8900 rather than the 9000
