Really am looking forward for this phone, finally I can feel the keys pressing and a bit of nostalgia could be enjoyed too. Its been ages since a physical keyboard was added on any phone. Specs are not as strong as flagship phones these days, however don't want it to blow up either.
I am so excited for this phone. I just recently bought a classic for its keyboard and it seems like this will be my future phone. I know the specs are not that stellar but I am a simple user and not a fan of phone with similar build that keeps on upgrading every year. I have my laptop to satisfy my multimedia and gaming needs. I do agree that the price is steep for this phone so I'll wait for a year or two before I purchase one. Thank you blackberry for not giving up on keyboard lovers like me even though a lot of people criticize you for it
A mid-ranger with the price of a flagship and a screen this size? Blackberry must be crazy
Would have bought that phone if it was Landscape Slider...8/10 for Specs (Cons: Non-Removable Battery & Newer OS...rumor has it Android 6+ don't have Move Apps to SDcard & Disables Internal Memory if you format SDcard to Internal Memory so you have to choose between internal or external memory)
- 3GB RAM (Perfect)
- 2.0Ghz CPU, 8-Core (Though a Single High CPU suck battery, 8-Cores helps)
- 32GB Storage (Perfect with Any SDcard & Old "Move Apps to SDcard" Feature)
- Adreno 506 GPU (OpenGL 3.2 Support = PS2 Games)
- 4.5" Display & 1080p Resolution (For Games that require bigger Resolution)
- Built-In Radio (How I miss those days), 8MP Camera, etc
- Non-Removable...If the Battery had a compact 100,000mAh I still wouldn't touch that phone
- AGAIN WITH THE PORTRAIT SLIDER AND NO NUM ROW...THIS HAS A GAMING GPU, BUT DISPLAY TO PLAY FLAPPY BIRD ALSO IT MUST BE HARD USING THIS PHONE WITH TOP OF THE SCREEN BEING SO FAR UP

Anyway, the camera is NOT worse than the two year old Priv's. It has less MP, but it's the same sensor as the one on the Google Pixel phones so it will certainly produce higher quality images.
Its look better.. Blackberry is one of the most popular brand in phone and its never let down to our costumers... Anybody tell about its price in India ?

Android and Security are two words that do not really belong in the same sentence. Search Google about QuadRoot exploits and see how many Android devices were exposed to that. Including here BlackBerry PRIV (ironically PRIV stands for privacy) and BlackBerry DTEK 50. Both phones promoted and praised as "two of the most secure android phones available to masses"
Can you tell me how many BlackBerry 10 devices were exposed to malware, exploits, viruses, etc? The answer is ZERO, my friend! Of couse, never say never, but chances of seeing a virus on a BlackBerry10 device are almost zero. And that without having an ativirus software or any other security related app installed on device.
Want to know why is that? Because BB10 OS it is a proprietary operating system and in the same time it is a closed source operating system.
This is security, not a baby toy powered by an open source Android that is likely to receive a virus by just surfing on Google.
End of story.

But yeah, Blackberry keyboard layout need to be improved. I find the old Nokia E63 has better keyboard layout than Blackberry. But now if you want to have a PKB phone, there is no other choices rather than Blackberry.
