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!).

Anyway... yeah, I completely ignored the cost of data. Sorry. I'm using unlimited data plan so FM radio really is insignificant to me.
I am pretty sure people who get a BB Priv from their company or buy one themselves don't have much time listening to the radio. And sorry to say this if I already offend somebody.

Let's wait, and we will see the truth. About the LG V10, I think that is going to have Fm radio, because LG put this feature on every international device.

In Europe, this would be the only Android based QWERTY phone. As others have expressed, the price is quite high.
Why not just the take the Blackberry Classic and put an Android on it.
FM radio would have been nice, but it is not a deal breaker. (although these days, I prefer DAB radio).
Now if they could just come up with a 3.5" device for the ladies in this format.
