Finally we get to see some screenshots from RIM's up and coming touchscreen device, currently codenamed the BlackBerry Thunder. Big props to BlackBerrySync for going public with these screenshots of the Thunder's media player application. Running OS 4.7, the BlackBerry Thunder will feature a carrier music store similar to the iPhone's iTunes store and will allow users to purchase songs directly from their device. BBsync also says the Thunder's 360X480 touchscreen display is likely to be made of glass and will make for excellent widescreen viewing of movies and videos taken on the Thunder's built-in camera.
I have a feeling we will soon be seeing a lot more shots of the BlackBerry Thunder. Rumor has it production work on the Thunder begins next week!
