BlackBerry Thunder?!Disclaimer: YES that is a Photoshop. :-)

Earlier this week we brought details from the BG on the rumored BlackBerry Thunder touchscreen smartphone.

After reading those rumors, it seems the Wall Street Journal has gone on to do some investigatory journalism and has confirmed some of the details earlier reported.

WSJ has confirmed the BlackBerry Thunder will launch as a Verizon and Vodafone exclusive, but unlike BG did not confirm that this would be a life-time exclusive. And while the WSJ confirms the Thunder will have a touchscreen, they did not confirm that the Thunder would be completely without a physical keyboard.

If you missed the first story on the BlackBerry Thunder, check it out here for more details.

You just gotta love (or maybe its hate?!) the blogosphere. After months of reporting on BlackBerry Bold 9000 rumors, literally minutes after its official announcement the focus turns to the next device in the pipeline. Maybe I'm growing more patient in my older age, but somedays I just wish things could sit still so we could simply ENJOY our current devices (they do ROCK ya know!) without worrying about what's coming next.
