It reminds me of the elegant and futuristic design lines from the famous Danish B&O designer Jacob Jensen from the seventies.
Rather elegant.

The keyboard of the phone is made from plastic not metal as told in the video.

I like the design,is different more modern,not the same I had a BB before and all look the same,one thin they should change is the OS, put QNX and NFC on this thing and make it a little bit thinner.
