Anonymous, 17 Sep 2015Apparently you don't have a brain either...Blackberry is a Canadian Company. ;)And the second - First cell phone was from Motorola,not from Germany! First "smartphone" was also from USA - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_Simon
looks very good, will be intresting to see how the phone handels. will also be intresting to see if the camrea app still works how it used to as was one of the best on the market at one point. lets hope it last more then a year, along with good sortware support.
indian sense, 18 Sep 2015looks like my work station calculatorNow you mentioned it, it doed look like a calculator.
Blackberry/Samsung hardware but total android inside huh.. I wonder what happens if you swipe to the left.. does the Blackberry Message Hub come up?
AnonD-142922, 18 Sep 2015Well this whole phone looks so retro so why not keyb. that way..Ever heard of 'text-claw'? Thats why. Can your thumb really reach all of that qwerty keyboard in long horizontal position? I don't think so.
Noname, 18 Sep 2015I would definitively buy this with Win10, surely not with Android. I look for realibility, not... moreI believe everyone who actually uses their phone to do stuff will want Windows 10 on this. (power users)
Currently, Windows offers the best productivity tools, features, stability and security.
Those who just want to show off with their customised home screens or want to use a popular OS without doing anything else besides making calls & playing some games on their phones, will use Android. (normal users)
AJ, 17 Sep 2015Why would anyone buy this phone? For starters, it's going to be grossly overpriced, like all o... moreWell, they still are very much in business disappointing anti-BB people like you. It's still in business and still surviving, deal with it.

Only thing that needs confirmation is the swipe right to go back to what you were doing in the hub and customizable quick settings (that also double as on off switches)
Wow. Looks pretty. It's sad Blackberry are some of the few still making qwerty phones. Touchscreen typing is still terrible.

A camera superior to the iphone. Go easy haters.
