I hope it is real; but it is looking more and more like a fake.

anyone notice the famous RIM evaluation model sticker is not present on the back. Even their eval and R&D models *usually* have the IMEI/PIN listed on the inside of the device. I obviously could be wrong (wouldnt be the first time) but there are alot of holes in this. Unfinished back, missing eval sticker, missing IMEI/PIN tracking sticker on the inside, the backwards B in blackberry.


Also, the SIM card slot doesnt mean this isnt a mockup of a CDMA curve. It is rumored to be a world version similar to the 8830.

At the least this has given us sme fun in speculation!

This bb is to unfinished I think to have even been a test device. Really the main board is exposed.

I know im new here i usually just surf around reading things(bet you heard that a million times) but this is a very big thing right now real or fake. its obviously fake to an extent, of that it is not a blackberry of any sort in my opinion. some said the it might be verizon curve but the pearl looked pretty much the same. and also many people have been saying it looks like a hybrid of a q and a centro etc etc. Which is were i thought of my idea, maybe its the new years celebration or something else i dont know. But i started to thinking, not too long ago there was a "leak" from motorola about their new phones and one of them was the ghengis, yes i know bgr said its fake and many others.


the sidekick slide made by moto has a trackbally looking thing which i have circled, and the ghengis fake thing is kinda curvy on the sides and has a very simalar keyboard. Im not saying this thing is the next Q or what. i know its not a blackberry the "B" in "berry" is backwards, zoom in close enough the menu button, the led, send and end all look photoshoped. form your own conclusions i just thought (with alcohol assistance) maybe this has a connection? maybe the original photoshoper wanted to make the ghengis then someone grabbed it and put blackberry on it. anyway sorry for the short novel, thats my 2 cents

One thing that I do like about that prototype (or mockup, whatever it is), is that the trackball is replaced with either a rocker or better yet, a touch disc (for lack of a better term). I like the trackball but it does tend to get dirty and clogged up.

It does look fairly small -- the MiniUSB connector looks big. You can even calculate the length of the device just by measuring the miniUSB port on the computer screen and scaling the measurement with the known dimensions of the miniUSB connector.

I agree, I am very fond of the thumbwheel and will miss it more than anyone knows. My eyes are not what they were in the past so I usually hold my berry at arms length. The thumbwheel makes it easy to use with one hand especially while driving. I have no idea why RIM changed to a trackball but they obviously ignored all the survey's I filled out.

One final thing I would like to make clear.....

Anyone who I might personally know at RIM in waterloo (that's quite a few) has never leaked information to me.

The information I have obtained (the fact that the device in the image is the 9000, HTML e-mail and 3G) has been from RIM eployees I do not know.

It's always been a problem at RIM where their employees will give total strangers small bits of information.

I've never personally known a RIM employee to hand out information. And whenever I ask I get the "I can't tell you because I'd get fired" response

Cheers to the guy with the Red badge for giving me information and for using this device in public!

Is it just me or is there two types of keyboards on the device. On the left it looks like there is a "new" design while the right side is from the 8800..

Anything is possible, but that sounds more like wishful thinking.

Default The Holy Trinity ( WIFI / GPS / CAMERA )

Does anyone have any information, if this 9000 model will have these 3 features? or any other Blackberry model?

Thanks...

There are a couple other threads in this Rumor Mill section with confirmed 9000 specs.

I wish it were real ... Would be cool to have something of this form factor. Looking at the color scheme it has Verizon all over it, hehehehe. However I do think this is a fake.
