If you are reading these comments, then please bring back devices like Q5,Q10,classic,passport with BB OS ( but at a sane price tag and updated hardware,SoC) with an option to run Android.
You can have a complete touch screen versions of same.
It would be enough to compete any flagship device in the market.
There shall be no need to have As,Cs,Js,ons,offs,pros,primes .....
Marius, 18 Aug 2016BlackBerry 10 is a multiplatform OS and all BB10 devices are capable to run Android apps! True, but without the Google Play Services (which you cannot legally run outside Google certified Androids), you'll lose many of the most relevant Android apps... sure, it looks good in a spec-sheet, but in the end people will walk-away disappointed if they bought those devices thinking they could get *most* Android apps.
I bought BBs because of their excellent SECURE operating systems. Pse dont try cram Android down the customers throat. Rather bring out handsets with high performance chip, at least 3 gig ram, lots of phone memory, good battery life and good finish with BB10, amd offer both QWERTY and Touch versions. Q10 still my favorite, prefer even to my Passport!
Dear Santa/Mr Chen
My dream phone is a BB Passport Silver Edition running Android, with USB C and fingerprint sensor.
FYI, I was a very good boy all year around!!
pls provide blackberry classic or q10 or bold 9790 or bold 9900 with android....we like small comfortable devices for business...we have missed the old blackberry style devices.....were very comfortable for us.........

Don't need to give new name to your phone. Start with same design with android os. For example Z10,Z30,Passport,Classic etc.
It has all the possible features that I wanted, except for the finger print sensors. That's not a big problem ' , a pattern would actually work but at least they could had increased the battery . 2610mah is seriously very low for this generation.
BB is unbeatable mobile... BlackBerry DTEK50 mobile features are good but internal memory is low...

This just a downgrade for Blackberry, I love Z10 with bb10 os but now they're using Android as their operating system which is unstable and alot of animation stutters, from a premium looking Z10, Z30, Z3 and Priv, they downgraded their self to a shape that looks like cheap phones do, why Blackberry.
Marius, 14 Aug 2016Look again and you will discover that this phone is an Alcatel Idol 4 rebranded by BlackBerry.... moreVery nice piece of information, should have researched before commenting.
It's a little bit thicker than the original Idol 4, but yeah... indeed a rebrand (it baffles me).
I still see some lines that reminisce me the Nexus 4, much more than the original Alcatel (where silver frame somehow masks this).
Anonym, 14 Aug 2016Am I the only one that looks to this phone and sees a 2016 "refresh" of the Nexus 4 design? I... moreLook again and you will discover that this phone is an Alcatel Idol 4 rebranded by BlackBerry. The major difference is that DTEK50 runs a (almost) stock version of Android without any bloatware inside.
