Blackberry clamshell

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for someone to get a Blackberry into a reasonable and discreet form factor; I’d like to be able to use Blackberry features and still be able to use the same device as a phone on the weekend without looking like I’m chained to the office.  Lockergnome reports that Samsung has shown a prototype of a Blackberry clamshell and I’m including a picture below.

No word yet on carrier, pricing, or release date.  Also, I’d like to see a picture of the phone next to something else just to get a true size perspective, but aside from all that, I’m still encouraged.

I don't know who carries what models of phones, but you can get certain kinds of phones that runn BlackBerry software but they aren't on the actual BlackBerry devices. they fall into a category called BlackBerry Connect Devices. I have heard of a Sony Erikson, a Siemens, a Nokia and newer Palm Treo devices running Blackberry software. maybe that's the solution you should be investigating to get both form and function.
