Yes, another rumor. But what kind of gadget loving, human eschewing geeks would we be if we didn’t thrive on such things. Carry on. The BlackBerry slider has been an on again off again rumor that has stretched over several years, though failed to materialize into anything tangible. The leaked image above and accompanying symphony of letters paints a different picture in the near future.

According to a few Gizmodo ninjas, this so called BlackBerry slider will be a portrait oriented device and come to market featuring OS 6.0 and “100%” support for 802.11n WiFi. Unfortunately, it’s already outdated in my book with the now outdated display resolution of 360 x 480. Hopefully RIM corrects this if it is in fact a real device being proposed for sale.

For the touchscreen hopefuls, no mention has been made yet, but, given how long RIM has also been rumored to be tinkering with touchscreen + QWERTY combos, I wouldn’t rule it out just yet. As far as carrier support, the rumor for now is GSM/HSPA. So that’s a big NO CDMA support initially.

Sounds pretty exciting on paper, though I’m hesitant to get all excited for something that has a slim chance (for now) of making it to market. How are you fairing?
