Good thing blackberry came up with something unique.Hopefully this will save the company.:)
AnonD-147044, 26 Sep 2015wait, capacitive? so hot actual keys? basically like a touchscreen? then i won't buy it. where... moreyou dont own a bb passport thats the reason you dont know the combination of hard keypad and soft touch/heptic keyboard
Waited for along time. For such a phone from Blackberry
Definitely will have one...
Last time I owned a BB was the 8900 whoa that's a long time ago. I used to wish BB would hire me so I can tell them where the market was going. Like I wasn't the only one. Many people here were saying that BB needed to get with Google and create something as fun as an android but still with the business at mind. I remember I didn't even have to look at my keyboard to type. I knew where all the keys were at. Honestly I am going to give it a shot. The specs are solid. But RIM has to stay making phones like this. It will start to bring people back there fans.
What with all these trolls? You guys realize that changing names doesn't mean you are a different person. Your location code says everything.
Yes I am getting one too . Hopefully with this phone, I am safe from another frappening.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2015Heh.. That's because Android is a mainstream OS among teenagers who want to show off. Business... moreI have *never* seen Windows Phone in the workplace.
Just because some guy at BestBuy told you that doesn't make it true. iOS and BlackBerry still own that market.
It is going to be a big hit. At last they made something that people like...
If the camera is competitive with the S6, iphone 6s and g4 than theres nothing to talk about it. Specs are as g4 and they will price it less than iphone 6s like they did with the passport.
Overall a wonderfull phone. Waiting for it to launch...
Lol...First time I see someone who is in mobile business who doesnt now know to use Android OS....It shows that he is deeply in Android OS...BTY...looks really good this device. Just dont like the name,
It's flaterring John Chen proves that he's still attached to how BB10 works, by actually fumbling his presentation of the new Blackberry Android device. Totally jumping ship is really not on his mind right now. Makes me love my Z30 even more. Forget about the apps lacking in numbers. I love it cause it makes me different, even if I get laughed at by IOS and Android users. I just laugh at them in return because they are all the same. Fist bump!
he 1st swipe up from the bottom of the screen this only proves that the CEO is very used to of his Blackberry 10 device. since i also used a BB 10 powered device...i also did the same mistake while using Android phones.
well all i wish from John Chen is to lauch this powerfull device on BB 10 platform also.
I didn't understand a thing. All I can say is the Reporter is cute..
Jumbo, 26 Sep 2015Yeah agree. Hopefully the thickness is kept to a minimum, that was always the problem with sli... moreyeah...like the good old xperia x10 but i like the blackberry implementation very nice....the phone looks sleek in video with the curved display.
I think they may launch a compact slider in future...all depends upont success of Priv
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2015Great. Even the CEO is clueless how an android phone work. Should stick to Blackberry OS. Heh.. That's because Android is a mainstream OS among teenagers who want to show off. Business people just stick to BB, Windows phone and (sometimes) iOS.
AnonD-147044, 26 Sep 2015wait, capacitive? so hot actual keys? basically like a touchscreen? then i won't buy it. where... moreDo you even understand how capacitive physical keyboards work?
'Capacitive keys' means that the keyboard can be used as a trackpad. That's the whole thing.
AnonD-75819, 26 Sep 2015I would take my previous comment back...sliding qweery with capacitive track pad is truly amaz... moreYeah agree. Hopefully the thickness is kept to a minimum, that was always the problem with sliders. Would be especially handy for smaller-screen devices so they don't give up the screen estate where it's more important. For instance, I wonder if Sony mighta considered this for the Z5 Compact, it's quite chunky anyway...
I would take my previous comment back...sliding qweery with capacitive track pad is truly amazing...larger screen state+awesome keyboard just add one sd card slot and good batteey. It looks premium no complains if it launch at high peicwe...Blackberry has the winner now.
