AnonD-240452, 22 Oct 2015I don't think FM radio feature is part of the "smart" in smartphones. Anyway... yeah, I comple... moreYou are right. FM radio is so basic functionality, that is were present in many phones long before they were called 'Smart'. So more a part of 'Phone' than 'Smart'.
Here some 10 years or older examples
A little pricey but the specs are at least where they should be and the keyboard should appeal to many. Worth a look.
chris, 23 Oct 2015and its quite heavy 192 grms is like a brickGood solid build. A proper big phone
I think the phone is a clear win! Please Blackberry don't mess this one up. If you make it look cool enough you would be bringing action to the smartphone game. Samsung is just so lame for some reason. REMEMBER BBM? YOU NEED TO REMIND THE WORLD TYPING ON A KEYBOARD ON BBM WAS THE BEST THING IN LIFE.
some improvements and this would be the best phone out there, firstly they should have waited and had the latest cpu and gpu and latest os also usb type C and a finger print print scanner like any other also a minimum 5 megapixel front camera and the pricing should have been around $500 or even less as they are not the same as they were if they expect to come back in the market you need to come back with all this points trust me you guys will win and also superior c/s
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.
AnonD-439376, 22 Oct 2015just buy any low cost local android phone instead wasting money on that phone 1- it has true keyboard . no othe android phone has it.
2- it has curved Amoled screen
3-it has high end camera
4-it has HUGE removable battery
5-it has SD card
6-you can answer calls fast by sliding and end calls by sliding down . no need to look at the screen to anser or end the call
7- it is secure , unlike normal android phones
8- you cant pay for it sad day for you.
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
