However, analysts from Kaufman Bros. said they had been receiving strong indications from RIM on a hybrid cross-bread of touchscreen/keyboard. In there analysis they concluded that, “from our understanding, this new BlackBerry would have a full
touchscreen plus a pull-out physical keyboard. It would be similar to
others from HTC, Palm, Motorola and others but of course sport a
distinctive signature BlackBerry industrial design.”
Kaufman Bros. also made the suggestion that the new browser RIM is working on is based off of the same web-kit that was used to make Apple Safari, Google Chrome and Palm WebOS Browser.They also believed RIM might introduce the ability to download other 3rd-party browsers, like Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. Perhaps there might still be a chance for FireFox? We’ll see.
