BlackBerry 9800 slides onto our screens yet again

The more I see this device, the more I like it, and the more I want one. The 9800 has once again been pictured and sent out all over the blogs. This time showing is its horizontal, virtual keyboard along with a YouTube application. It also gives us a better look at the back of the device. All I know is, that device is sexy and I want a piece of the BlackBerry 6 pie. I’ve always liked the abomination of the BlackBerry series, the Storm, but I would like a physical keyboard too. With choices like that and BlackBerry 6, I can see this device going a long way with on-the-fence consumers. Maybe BlackBerry 6 and RIM’s slow approach at some new designs will attract some attention and take off, once again.

Few things that alot of people talk about if you own a BlackBerry or not doesnt matter!!!
OTA or "over the air"
a link that can be accessed from your mobile device's browser. Your file will download directly to your device "Over The Air"

This is your Blackberry's operating system. The tour released with version 4.7 and now can be updated to 5.0. The version of your OS can effect the type of theme you can install.

Today or "hidden today"
A feature in the theme that lists either calendar items or unread messages when you scroll over corresponding icons.
Today is a type of default layout that shows messages and calendar icons along with the "today" lists, separate from the standard icons.

QuickLaunch is a great paid ($4.99) app that launches a menu on your homescreen that has a list of shortcuts to various apps, and links for easy access. Most of my themes launch this app (if you have QL installed) when you hit the spacebar on your keypad.

Wallpaper Friendly
This just means the theme allows full or nearly full visibility of your background image, or wallpaper.
