BlackBerry N-Series smartphone shows up in a live photo  - read the full textOnly a few days after its touchscreen sibling made a couple of appearances, RIM's BlackBerry N-Series smartphone emerged in a duo of live photos. The soon to be revealed BlackBerry 10 smartphone packs a hardware QWERTY keyboard in addition to its capacitive touchscreen. As you can see in...

I agree that Blackberry loyal users have stayed because of the soft physical qwerty and allocated keys for call/end/menu/return plus the trackpad because it's a phone first. I still would mainly use a trackpad, even on the touchscreen 9900/9930 models. I can see these new models solidifying their current loyal base of clients and new clients that want a physical qwerty but don't see many android/windows/iphone users switch to the touchscreen model. I hope that this new launch really helps Blackberry because many users would really suffer without them. There aren't Android physical qwerty phones that really compare if Blackberry can simply improve the web browsing speed and the multi-media capabilities. Most Blackberry users are not gamers or needing too many additional applications.

Thats why Im still a nokia n95 8gb user.

There will be a full touchscreen model for u to choose on. For sure rim can just use that 9900 design for bb10, but there will be others that gonna say rim is lazy, what not.
Also, to use 9900 design & make full use of bb10, how big the device/design would be?

This BB handset is the bomb! I like a qwerty handset with a huge screen so that I can clearly see and browse the web, I just hope keypad is light press I am excited when this is gonna be available in the Philippines, ehehe :)

Honestly, if it is true new Blackberry 10 device, i feel disappointed. Blackberry 10 is something that many Blackberry lover are waiting for. With this design, the device is so usual, has just so-so design. I don't say it's ugly but it's not something special.

Blackberry 9900 design is something special (if not the best) that can be mentioned as "The TOP of all Blackberry devices"
