Horizon Wireless recently opened up preorders for the BlackBerry 9500 “Thunder”, a device which hasn’t even been announced yet, and yeah, we’ve been hearing about a touchscreen BlackBerry for a couple of eons now, but this is the first even vaguely solid evidence to date. The picture is extra-blurred, and covered in the Horizon logo, so there’s really not much there to comment on… Blogworthiness aside, RIM did give Horizon the legal backhand to remove the pictures, so you gotta think there was some legitimacy to the snap after all. Supposedly the shots were of a dummy version (i.e. just the housing), so more info is sure to come once it gets some guts. Cheers Chris!
