If you had any doubts that the BlackBerry slider phone was real, here's a short "leaked" video that shows it as clearly as these "leaked" videos usually show things. Apparently, it's called the BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider. [BGR]
Dear Blackberry Storm,
Because I care about you, and once loved you, I feel you deserve to hear it from me straight. I'm with another phone now. We both saw this coming, and it's time to stop the lies. I'll be the first to admit that things were good for a while. I had just gotten out of an abusive relationship with a Moto RAZR, and at the time you were the answer to all my needs and desires. But in time I came to realize that our success was based on my low expectations because of the RAZR. I eventually discovered I deserve much more than you can offer.
I appreciate the growth you've achieved through updates, and even inspiring the Storm 2, but those changes were too little too late. I understand your business is very important to you, but I need a phone that knows how to have fun, and responds to my needs for excitement and fun, not just getting work done. I need a phone that feels me.
You're trying hard, and I see that. This is why I'm letting you go. You deserve to be with someone who needs you and appreciates you for what you are.
p.s. - HTC Incredible will be arriving later this week, and I think it would be best for all of us if you had your stuff out before she gets here.
And tell RIM that for the foreseeable future, I don't feel it's appropriate for me to associate with any of his group...
