RIM's first slider device, the BlackBerry Torch, arrived in 2010, sporting a capacitive touchscreen — which supported pinch-to-zoom — and a hard Qwerty keyboard.
The Torch was also notable for being the first to run the latest OS, BlackBerry 6, which featured a refreshed UI and a WebKit browser.
The clamshell form factor resurfaced in 2010 with the launch of the BlackBerry Style — the first flip-phone to have a full Qwerty keyboard.
The smartphone runs the BlackBerry 6 OS but has no touchscreen onboard. Instead, there's a two-inch external display — shown above — where users can check information such as when a new text message has arrived.
BlackBerry Bold 9900
The Bold resurfaced again in 2011 and this time, it featured short-range wireless NFC technology — typically used for contactless ticketing and payments.
The Bold 9900 also came with a capacitive touchscreen and ran the latest version of RIM's operating system, BlackBerry OS 7, which includes an HTML5-friendly browser. There's also a five-megapixel camera onboard.
