RIM's BlackBerry 9900 is the device that the BlackBerry diehards have been hoping,
wishing, and waiting for since the original Bold launched way back in 2008. However,
this time around the company has added in a capacitive touchscreen,
swapped the trackball of yesteryear for an optical trackpad,
and slimmed the whole thing down into a 10.5mm thick package.
We were lucky enough to get a prototype device from our friends over at Negri Electronics,
and have manhandled the thing till we were blue in the face.
Head on past the break for an exclusive preview of the device RIM
is praying will stalwart its competitors until the first round of QNX-equipped devices lands in 2012.
