The only reason I like blackberry is the physical keyboard. A $300 android phone is ok for me. The maximum price for me is about $400. More than that i'd rather stick to my lenovo.
Everybody who's saying keyboard is small must have never had a physical keyboard phone.
U can't compare physical kyeboard size to touchscreen keyboard size.
Physical keyboard could be 2 times smaller than the one on touchscreen and still you'd be able to type faster on physical keyboard.
I've had NOKIA E6. Q10, PASSPORT, CLASSIC.
after nokia E6 I went to LUMIA 1520. check the differences of size of those phones.
I didn't not had trouble typing on NOKIA E6 ever.
BlackBerry has roll software update in all passports which makes it android...
I think passport can handle that...
Too all you ....guys , with the comments that ur hands are to big for this ladies keyboard...lol get over yourself .
The keys are raised and doesn't, matter how big your hands are.....or how big you think they are.
I can type faster with my bb classic key board then my laptop ,mind over matter and a little practice........and it is brilliant !!!!!!
The DTEK60 went really well. Can only see things getting better for BlackBerry now - this looks a top quality phone, going back to their roots with a keypad too. I like it!

If Blackberry / TCL launch this with a Snapdragon 821 and 4gb of Ram and 64gb of storage with the already Stereo speakers and they tweak the hell out of the cameras to take stellars pictures front and rear we have a serious Flagship on our hands ....question is how much does TCL want this.????
And yes if this is the Specs I will first in line this would be the first true bold replacement.

Looks good. At least for me, Blackberrys are very good phones. I'll have to make up my mind which one to retire - Classic or Passport - when this one come out.
design is absolutely brilliant, but the entire size should within 147 x 77.2 x 9.4 mm (5.79 x 3.04 x 0.37 in) or preferably slightly more. It should not be too big or too small.
Yes, The silver part should be black and edge curved. To more improvise, all the apps should be kept on the key pad on long press.
The top silver part should be black as well , and the corners should be rounded like the bottom once , just to be perfect .
