Research In Motion a Canadian mobile phone maker is hard at work with the development of a new BlackBerry device, the long rumored BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider, and a new photos with the device have just emerged into the wild. Running under the BlackBerry 6 OS, the new device is reportedly headed to the market with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, which is complemented by a virtual QWERTY keypad, as some of the images below show.

The yet unannounced handset marks a shift from the popular candybar QWERTY devices included in the company’s Bold series, given the sliding design, while also bringing into the mix some features from the Storm smartphones, with that touchscreen display it should sport. The screen boasts a 360 x 480 pixel resolution, and it seems that the SurePress technology won’t be present into the mix, yet specific details on what it should include are still missing.

Among the specifications that the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider might come to the market with, we can count 512 MB of RAM, coupled with 4 GB of on-board memory and a microSD memory card slot for additional storage space. Wi-Fi connectivity should be present on the device too, as well as a 5-megapixel photo snapper and a trackpad.
