Well, BB has 2 almost unique feature nowadays : FM, user replaceable batt. Now they remove those 2... But at least with a keyboard. Soon enough they will be exactly like all the others. Disappointing.
$949 in Canada? No chance I spend that kind of money on this phone...
BB.. why do u need a different OS?????? when u have BB10 which is far better.
Somebody, 20 Oct 2015Mid range... because of the GPU? The heck are you talking about? The SD808 with Adreno 418. Th... morenope .. 420 is faster
even old 330 and 320 are faster .
this phone is not for gaming.

John, 23 Oct 2015I think its gonna fail. You Wish, It will surprise you how they will re-caputre the market and the emerging markets again.
Sure I will buy one !!! I resist several year keep my Motorola Milestone II, I used for year Nokia Communicator... Then Apple came and all manufacturers try to copy them forgetting the essential ... This Blackberry is potentially an iphone killer. Key will be the result in hand of the curve screen. Samsung Edge 6 it is like having a knife in hand ... very bad compared to a normal Galaxy S6 (what I own today) or an iphone 6.
Thanks Blackberry // Well done!!!
Good idea - to have a Blackberry so that ALL? the contacts and other data transfer reliably onto Android OS. Then I'll be able to play Bridge on it... who listens to the radio on a mobile?????
It sounds maybe funny, but such kind of device could be real competitor with Apple devices and can kick in the a** manufacturers to produce (finally!!!) QWERTY android phones for people who want to type on REAL keyboards
Good camera and optics, near stock android, topline processor, huge battery, my fav (personal) form factor of slide (remember the W910) and a real good display. BB hits all the checks. Good they trashed their OS and its optimized processor. Corporate luv to u BB. Just dont expect 60K INR please, price it under 40k and we will talk
just buy any low cost local android phone instead wasting money on that phone
first update your own trashy OS 10...why pplz buy this android based phone ?it hasn't any wow factor for the consumers
Blackberry nears to be dead like nokia....BB Priv useless fone who want to buy thei qwerty crap
This is exactly what we have been waiting for.
BlackBerry always meeting our expectations.
Meeting corporate needs.
I'm OK with the price. Where else can you find a polished high-spec'd Android phone with a keyboard?? It's all that matters to me- the keyboard (a BB keyboard at that!).
Eske Rahn, 21 Oct 2015Excuse me for saying, but a pretty silly suggestion.... With the same argumentation you cou... moreI don't think FM radio feature is part of the "smart" in smartphones. Anyway... yeah, I completely ignored the cost of data. Sorry. I'm using unlimited data plan so FM radio really is insignificant to me.
