Video First Look at the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider

* Update from Kevin: I noticed in the comments some people are questioning if the BlackBerry Bold 9800 is a touchscreen or not. It's DEFINITELY a touchscreen. And it DOES NOT have SurePress. *

It's certainly not the most thorough look at the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider but it is indeed the first time its been captured on video. As posted on BGR, the video gives a really quick glimpse at the BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider for you all to have a look at. Hopefully, this is just the first of many videos that will pop up. Considering it has BlackBerry 6 loaded onto it, we'd love to get up close and personal with the device.

This video also puts to rest any uncertainty that may have been left out there of what product family the new slider might fall into. When the very first photos leaked of the slider they were incorrectly reported by the source as being a Storm 3, which Kevin quickly squashed in his BlackBerry Slider Q&A Roundup and hypothesized (errr.. just knew) it would be a Bold. In this video you can clearly see the Bold branding on the back. So who's getting excited for the BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider?
