First BlackBerry Thunder live pics surface

Well, that didn’t take long. Though we’ve only learned about the first touchscreen BlackBerry from a somewhat vague announcement not so long ago, here we have official proof of its existence, and the confirmation that it will be called the BlackBerry Thunder.

The BlackBerry Thunder is seen here facing front, with a queazy Verizon Wireless logo that means it will be coming to the said carrier. Not all touchscreen handsets are created equal to the Apple iPhone, but there’s no denying this is one sleek looking device.

As earlier rumors indicated, the BlackBerry Thunder sports a total of only four physical keys up front, leaving the duo of Convenience keys and a few other “buttons” to touch-sensitivity.

A lock/unlock touch-sensitive key is found on top of the device, opposite to a Play/Pause key for media and calls. The Convenience keys are situated on either side of the BlackBerry Thunder, and there’s room for a USB port and a headset jack in there as well.

There’s still no word about the rest of the specs and official release date, but with this live shot right here, expect these details to be released shortly.
