BlackBerry Bold 9800 images leaked, show off Webkit browser

It’s always pleasant to wake up to a nice BlackBerry leak, and today’s is no exception. A Cellular Guru tipster has managed to lay hands on a BlackBerry 9800 slider, and has released a few images showing off the new Webkit browser, and the BlackBerry 6 operating system. The browser seems to have a nice page-switching setup, and the 100% on the Acid3 test suggests RIM is taking this whole browsing thing seriously. The device is definitively looking to be a touchscreen (which has long been the rumor), and it looks as though SurePress has been left out (no real need, with the physical keyboard available) this time.
Of particular interest to those of us here at BBerryDog, is a small, relatively fuzzy photo (after the break, along with two other, much clearer shots), that shows the memory screen. Unless thine eyes are deceiving me, the 9800 in question has 3.2 gigabytes of free application memory! This would be an extraordinary step forward for RIM, who, as to date never released a device with more than 512 megabytes (and that’s the brand new Bold 9650). We’ll take this one with a grain of salt for now, but that prospect definitely has us excited. Check after the break for more photos, and let us know what you think in the comments

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.
