After seeing real images of the BlackBerry Thunder surface, one of our readers (thanks Brandon!) spent some time tooling in photoshop and honed in on the relative size of RIM's new touchscreen phone compared to existing BlackBerry devices.

BlackBerry Thunder vs. Curve

Look closely at the image and you'll see the BlackBerry Thunder and BlackBerry Curve appear to be pretty darn close! Turn your Curve sideways and start fake-typing across the width of device - I'm thinking it should make for a comfortable (and hopefully quick!) typing experience. I can't wait to see side by side live comparisons of the Thunder. Another comparison shot is waiting for you after the jump!
