I am really happy Blackberry could manage to stand still... I wish in future will be launching in BB OS again...
From a BB fan
The price is ridiculous. I can buy a used-iPhone 7 with that price. This gonna be failed.
can i get any information regarding inbuilt documents to go?
otherwise any other apps is installed with license.
i like blackberry and this handset is pretty in look but might be weighted. by the way, i am waiting and so excited to available in market soon.
Blackberry phones has premium build quality and primarily designed for work and business, as evidenced by the old school design like the keyboard, the smallish screen size, the "low specs", and the likes. Its target market is the work and business world. Its hefty price won't do you justice if you are not in that market. If you just use your phone for social networking, games or multimedia purposes then you are looking at the wrong brand of phone. I do use my Passport for work and business. I do keep another phone suitable for other purposes such as the ones mentioned.

I'm loving it. BlackBerry user for 10 years now.

In everyday tasks, you won't see much difference between a 625 vs 820. The fact it has a more power efficient SoC while packing 3500 mAh to power only a 4.5" display makes it worth considering.
Retro-lovers galore with the new Nokia 3310 and Keyone. I think this is the best designed BB since the Bold 9900 from 2011. It wouldn't be catered to me because I've been using SwiftKey on Android for four years now and I adjust the keyboard to the largest size. Typing on a 5-5.5" is near perfect and save hundreds of keystrokes because of its predictive system.
For old school lovers who still prefer physical QWERTY, then this should be your only option. For most others, use SwiftKey on a 5.3-5.5" Android. The iOS version of it and its stock kb are all inferior Android's SwiftKey.
