Images of the BlackBerry Thunder media player surface

I can’t say that this excites me very much and I doubt it will excite any of you, but BBSync has some exclusive images of the Thunder’s (9500) music player. Apparently the Thunder’s music player will be carrier specific (BOO!) with the ability to purchase songs on the fly. We know the Bold will ship with Media Sync and it makes me wonder why the Thunder won’t have it. Of course, that’s solely based on conjecture, but I don’t see why a Verizon device such as this would play nice with iTunes, anyway.

Other notables include OS 4.7 and a 360×480 touch display that should be glass ala iPhone, It also appears that the Thunder can go into landscape mode for videos. Too bad it’s going to be a CDMA device. I hope, for RIM’s sake, the Thunder is a “World Edition” device.
