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.

We want the track pad and the end/call buttons!I agree. Removing those buttons is one the most retarded mistake to do. Too many phone manufacturers do that mistake these days.
Thats why Im still a nokia n95 8gb user.

there nothing like blackberry on this planet ...a little bit of improvement s and it will be back on track ..hope so
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 :)
bb, 25 Dec 2012Im a heavy business bb user for 2 yrs now and recently came upon iphone 4 which is old tech by... moreWrong. Some people like me want good smartphones with real/hardware buttons to press. We think that all phones without hardware keyboard are only rubbish phones regardless to OS and other features.
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"
XE5, 25 Dec 2012naa ! I'm using my iPhone 4 for 2 yrs and it can handle 6+ straight hours of heavy usage.No need to bash my friend, it đ depends on what he ment by heavy usage. IPhone really is more on productivity usage, not for games and leisure.IPhone is on different level, and android is another.
