BlackBerry is gearing up to launch the first-ever BB10 Slider device. In a recent interview, BlackBerry CEO, John Chen, revealed the Slider wouldn’t begin shipping until the end of this year.

Besides the short glimpse of the Slider when unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2015 event, we haven’t seen any additional live photos of the device. Thus far, only graphic artists have been designing their ideas for how they envision to Slider to look.

One such artist from TwoBB created 3D modeling of the Slider for its use in a real world scenario, even with a side of whiskey. Check out the sleek photos below:

As we highly anticipate the BlackBerry 10 Slider’s release later this year, what are your thoughts on the device? Are you excited for BlackBerry to be resurrecting the Slider form-factor? Let us know in the comments.
