My next phone... Been waiting for keyboard with android and bb hub and decent battery... cant wait
I believe BB shall make also an side slider. I had about 6 years ago an Nokia E7, brilliant side slider, excellent design and build quality. Only one unpleasant issue - way to heavy.
I would guess a reloaded version (SD 821, 4GB, 5.2 or 5.5", etc). A slider keyboard will be a great advantage for regular man's hands. Easy to hold the phone and type with both hands.
Every constructor goes to boardless & Blackberry goes to physique keybord
None of you have used it...
So STFU about it being too small.
I meant people who have never had a physical keyboard phone. Stupid touch keyboards and auto-correct.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2017I hope the price will be around 400 dollar, I believe this dtek 70 will make blackberry on the... moreIt could be $600 and still be more useful than any Iphone, Samsung, or any of the Chinese made stuff.
For those that have never had a touch screen phone, try racing someone who has a physical keyboard sometime. Bet they can type faster and more accurately without even looking at the keyboard than you can typung normally.
I used to have a little LG900 feature phone that had a PK. I could consistently win bets for how fast and accurately I could send a specific text message. And this was against Iphone3's, Samsung Galaxy 1 and 2, plus Motorola DX2.
Then again, I am old enough to remeber learning to type on IBM Selectric typewriters. Didn't even have correction ribbons, had to use correction paper and type over the character.
Why not a new Passport?
Yes simply a Passport with android OS!!
Perfect to business device!!!
BEAN, 06 Jan 2017Obviously never tried a blackberry before.......
Had blackberry in hands and keyboard is too small.
It fits only hands of a small guy or dwarf.
Doesnt matter how you look at me when its small its small its a blackberry problem and a way good reason why not to buy this phone.
I hope the price will be around 400 dollar, I believe this dtek 70 will make blackberry on the eye of the world because most of phone has same function...whatsapp,fb,video,selfie,browsing,.....the 'wow' factor for this phone is the battery,security,qwerty..easy to work with it...however if the price above 400 dollar, I don't think it will make a good comeback...people will choose iphone, samsung,huawei
[deleted post]Work??? How you can work on that tiny keyboard.
Or you have fingers like needles :-)
I have 5 inch screen on my Lenovo and its still too small.
Often happens to me a will push 2-3 letters at same time instead of one.
This phone looks nice but is useless.
Thats my opinion.
Unless you are little man or dwarf.
To small too bad.
This is either phone for child or for ladies.
Theres no normal man who can write on 4,5 inch display.
Even a keyboard is so tiny its useless.
Really really bad phone.
OK then.. BlackBerry is back on track with popular platform with popular screen size and with traditonal QWERTY that is super good.. I hope the price is bellow $400, and can't wait to see BlackBerry wiil be Popular again.
MHOSS, 05 Jan 2017I love the design. Camera MP is perfect. This should be a wow phone.never understood why people judging camera by their large number of Megapixel lool Google Pixel XL has 12MP which producing better pict than 20MP's Xiaomi Mi Note 2
I love the design. Camera MP is perfect. This should be a wow phone.
What's up with the thick black line around the screen it that normal?
