Blackberry OS level of security is like taking candy from a baby. My friend hacked into the BB Torch in 3 min after sending it a hacked email, as soon as you open your email account it takes over your phone. And i have total control to navigate it from my PC.

I don't believe this phone will be a viable competition to the phones that have similar faunctionality in the market. I'd much rather keep my SE k750.

Forgive me for saying this, but I like to be honest. While I like and use a black berry, I know the company will die a natural death because the phones are not as smart, screen very small, and qwerty keypads are a thing of the past. It can't move along into the future with the same old, same old. Those who embrace and keep innovating will survive and stay ahead. It seems blackberry is not moving forward by keeping on making physical qwerty phones. The stats shows that sales has dropped. Please learn from the market trend and drop in sales. Currently, the generation belongs to Android and iphone. Why young kids are using them? Even if it is to play games mainly, android and iphone have captured their market share already. They will not switch to a old fashion phone like a blackberry. Ask your children about it, they will tell you that.

Front facing camera? FINALLY!!!
But will it support Skype/GoogleTalk video calling via Wi-Fi?
If not, then camera will be useless for me.

Is it still using hardware we saw on phones 2 years ago? Marketing it as a 'Business' phone limits the capability and assumes we are are all morons. Personally I want something that is fun and functional after work too!

Buying one phone makes better 'business' sense!

Well if any of you lot can design a better looking qwerty keypad phone then go do it.... bearing in mind that every qwerty bar phone on the market looks like a blackberry. Theres not alot that you can do with the design of these phones, blackberrys always look the same..... much like mercades all look the same. its a design trait. deal with it

Blackberry's are not known for their designs, but their functionality. Hence why there is so many crackberry's out there.

Stop complaining about the designs, it's what Blackberrys are known for, they've changed the design by making it touch and type, that's a big difference from the first blackberry.

If they radically changed the design for Blackberry phones everyone would be commenting about why they changed the design and that it looks crap.
