Blackberry Slider To Run Exclusive On Sprint

We have heard rumors about the upcoming slider phone from RIM earlier.While earlier rumors were based solely on leaked images and the technology behind it, we are now hearing that the new Blackberry Slider with QWERTY keyboard could be launched exclusively on the Sprint network.

This comes after leaked pictures of the phone that sported the Sprint logo on it were released. Additionally, folks at BGR have confirmed from their sources that this upcoming Blackberry device could be numbered as 9900 and 9930.

What’s more, expect the launch to take some time. The sources have also reportedly claimed that the new slider handset failed 4 out of 5 times in initial diagnostic testing. So, it could be a while before all the issues are sorted out.
