Agreed!

But the Clam Shell is not really pretty.. If the front of it was a touch screen I might be more willing to use it.. but since it's not. I myself don't see the use in the device since I keep my device in a holster.. If I kept my device in my pocket I'd probably be all over this device.

Lots of new ones for us to speculate about!
In the bgr post about the phone they did show some pics of the external screen if you went into the gallery itself.

While the plastics won't be final, the fact that the pics show a working OS does tend to imply that it isn't a mock up and that the final device will be pretty similar to that.

The way I look at it is, I don't like the look of the device and won't be buying it, but if it appeals to an audience that don't already have a blackberry then its a good thing, its not like blackberry have the same one size fits all attitude of certain other hardware makers.

Has a real feel of a device made of parts that were lying around the shop. When RIM's biggest competitor by market share puts design first, in all they do, I find this to be a really bad move.
