After finding the User Agent Profile for the unannounced BlackBerry 9300, it looks like someone got to digging and found the one for the BlackBerry 9800. It’s listed as having OS 6.0, a 360 x 480 display, and Wi-Fi 802.11n which sounds an awful lot like the BlackBerry slider code-named Talladaga we’ve seen here and there.
The last rumours we heard about a release indicated that we could see this thing launched (or even announced) this month, but I have a feeling we’ll be seeing the 9100 and 9105 Pearls well before the Talledaga lands. It’s good to have a number attached to the Slider, although we still don’t know if it will be branded as a Bold, Pearl, or something new altogether. Whatever it’s called, the slider will be a brand new form factor and a steep departure from RIM’s usual candybar form factor. OS 6.0 will likely have some impressive goodies in it, possibly including a revamped home screen, but most of the new features are still a mystery.
