Leaked: BlackBerry 9800 QWERTY slider for AT&T

RIM's BlackBerry 9800 has a touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Would you buy it?

Well, well, well, look what we have here: the secret BlackBerry handset rumored to be in the works by Research in Motion has been caught in the wild.

It's called the BlackBerry 9800 -- a nickname has yet to be determined -- and is effectively a hybrid of the all-touchscreen Storm and the all-QWERTY Bold.

Images are courtesy Engadget, where a tipster confirms it's a world phone that's running (gasp) BlackBerry OS 6.

For me, any more details are irrelevant. The only thing that matters, now that the future is a little clearer: would you buy a slider QWERTY-plus-touch BlackBerry (with BES, naturally), or have you already moved your business on to Android, iPhone or elsewhere?
