Here are some new images of the BlackBerry 9500, known as Thunder, running version 4.7 of the BlackBerry OS. This will be the first touch screen enabled BlackBerry and from the looks of it RIM is trying to further increase their reach into the consumer space by appealing to the multimedia crowd. You can’t really tell how tight it’s going to be by just these few pictures, but hey, someone out there is going to use this as flame bait in an online forum. The screen has a 480×360 pixel display and the key selling point is that it will tie into an operators’ existing music store offering.
