Research in Motion (RIM) is expected to announce a new touch screen BlackBerry that will be its latest salvo against the iPhone. At least Wall Street seems to think so as shares of device maker rose Wednesday in anticipation, Reuters reported.
The BlackBerry 9800 is expected to offer a new OS, new browser and full slide out keyboard in a much needed refreshment of the BlackBerry line. Reuters points out RIMs stock has fallen by a third in the past year as iPhone and Android devices took off. The new 9800 may be in stores by mid August.
