The one dude below is on about iPhone sales and then asking BlackBerry to beat that. Diehard BlackBerry users don't care about phone sales and virus riddled game apps on android or useless apps in the iTunes store. BlackBerry users are professional people that only care about functionality efficiency and security. So, with that said, I will remind everybody that BlackBerry has the most secure OS by mile over iPhone and left android stalled in the paddock. I will reiterate your thoughts. It's sad that BlackBerry is making this move with Priv. And the rest of them can keep on drinking the kool-aid! Hahaha
I don't think John Chen is listening to consumers. what BB needs is to populate the BB store with popular apps on the android platform, also make the cross platform apps work for those of us who want alternative OS. However he has succeeded in signing the death sentence for BB OS. Thanks John for nothing.
You are right if the phone is a hit they'll ditch their OS and that would be a major loss for all of us who don't drink the android or ios koolaid

Btw, you may not care less but 15 million people cared way too much to buy the new iPhones in just what....3 days? Beat that BlackBerry! Hahaha
Admit it, you are alone in a lonely boat!

BBOS 10 was android jellybean with QNX launcher (bb launcher) and with BlackBerry services! How do you think installing android apks are possible? If u install nova launcher apk and go to settings you'll see that it is powered by android!
Man that looks like such a good phone!! :(
But I wonder how Blackberry this Blackberry will be???!!
I dig how smooth droids like HTC One M9, LG G4, and the Samsung GS6 are. VERY SMOOTH! Same with the iPhone. But Blackberry rocks in it's own right and own light. I wonder how the HUB, how the Explorer, how Remember will work IF it will even work at all. Android has the apps and smoothness, but Blackberry has feature I am just not willing to give up. I am so intrigued by this phone! Hope Blackberry doesnt stop. And hope for more Blackberry OS devices

So I could not care less if it then "will still be around and revolutionized beyond perfection."
I'm interested in something that actually works before my death, preferably NOW.

I guess Android users really don't care about playing games on their phone. With A9 rendering games 2~4X faster than 808, Android companies are still putting 808 on high-end phones with QHD screen.

But Apple didn't start out to make the popular iDevice, but today I don't think Apple lost its identity as the manufacturer of Mac computer. U get what i mean...?
From an OS to a mere android skin!!! Android and iOS are just too heavy now.Windows is fighting alone. What if this phone turns out to be a hit??? They will leave their OS forever.They are going to loose their identity. Seems to be a good phone though.

He has an iPhone 6 with a slide-out keyboard case, which he is apparently going to get rid of. Hence the "It would be bliss to get rid of Ios!!!".
