Bwuh? No tactile keypad, just four buttons and a bigass touchscreen? The patents don’t lie for a change, and a recent interview with co-CEO Jim Balsillie would indicate that a touchscreen is in RIM’s potential future. It’s supposedly going to be a dual-mode device (EV-DO rev. C, and HSPA) and launching internationally, exclusively on Verizon and Vodafone. Now, this thing is still in its extremely early stages, so plenty can change, but still an exciting prospect, especially considering BG is probably at WES talking to someone who knows a thing or two about the project.
