I use BB since 10 years , and I confirm you one thing about the design/material quality us the best on the market , surely BB took a worst decisions those last years , but still there products are high end quality , and with this high-end smartphone BB will be will return to its better days, I will return to BB .
This is very Late! Talking of specs it should have been out by now! Few Goodies though:
Swipe from the bottom takes you into 3 directions
1) right BlackBerry Hub
2) straight Google now...
3) left BlackBerry assistant.
Keyboard is touch sensitive.
It has the same BlackBerry blend and hub. I am afraid the battery and camera will not be good. The front speaker is loud this is what I have heard from a person having hands on experience with this phone.
I have been following the BlackBerry Venice since March til now to Priv(hate the nam)but I understand why they chose to name it priv.
well I have seen the Phone on concepts,actual pix and videos.i must say this phone is gonna be a hit...
to be correct it's 5.5 inches display not 5.4
18mp cam with double flash.. this phone is really a dream.
for those who don't like qwerty keypad..u can always close the phone n use virtual keyboard. so stop complaining.
I wish it was made on BlackBerry 10os for those hu stil love the operating system. but this is different a device that has BlackBerry and android but actually secured device. trust me u won't Fake/copy of this device unlike Samsung /iphone phones... so big ups BlackBerry wil Def buy this.
It will be great to see BLACKBERRY back on top IT looks like a great device congrats!!!
AnonD-125478, 27 Sep 2015forget the specs and its good design... but why it look so fragile??Yes it looks fragile, and how are we suppose to hold it while typing with both hands... wouldn't it be logical to put a full qwerty keyboard in landscape mode???
[deleted post]Must buy android phone. People who are ready to upgrade from Samsung can buy this.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2015Im getting it when it comes out.It's something different.Batery timing
Thumbs up for Blackberry going android. They'll be back in the game. Soon Nokia also will be androidied. This two will surely compete with Samsung and Apple.
Nothing new regarding the hardware logic, ie. http://www.gsmarena.com/dell_venue_pro-3280.php
I can understand why android (due to % in word) BUT eco 10.3 is unique and I hope that still will be avaiable (and company will earn on android's ;)). I have passport and it's absolutly great tool. (except native facebook client)
Name is answer for the biggest problem with android, privacy. Maybe slightly different name should better fit?
looking forward for this phone, huge bb fan! but im afraid the screen size might be too big.
forget the specs and its good design...
but why it look so fragile??
Armali, 25 Sep 2015i swear it will be a sad day for people like me to see the physical keyboard vanish from the ... moreSame here 😊 even I like physical keyboard of a phone and not the touch keyboard and that qwerty is my fav
