I don't think it will happen but I hope they come up with this form factor only with a 3" screen. It does the Xperia mini better.
mir, 17 Oct 2015Swipe txting comes to mind...oh trust me, i am used to write with swipe texting and it's not nearly as fast as me typing with a physical keyboard, it's a no brainer
Taker, probable taker here I think. I need to know who made that display and details about it first.
The phone looks excellent otherwise.
adlk, 16 Oct 2015have not seen people using Qwerty in a while...its gonna be on-screen!. who told you that you ... morePhysics and standard amount of IQ should tell anyone that one can and should write significantly faster with a hardware keyboard, than the joke of on screen keyboards.
I have had 4 BB10 phones(z10/q10/z30/classic). I really do love the gesture based interface, but looking at this phone-it's a beast. I would prefer this phone on BB10, however, if BlackBerry is abandoning BB10, this is the phone I will get. I will grab a Passport with BB10 if there's any black Friday sales.
Sorry blackberry ur too late
Now other mobile fones brands set their market
Hope u did this a year ago
Gblowbee, 16 Oct 2015The biggest advantage of the BB is their QWERTY Keyboard. On-Screen keyboard sucks and its not... moreIt has already proven since Swype that gesture typing is the fastest method on mobile devices, if you know how to use that off course. There's no need to argue, it's even official in guinness world records.

displays back then. bb launched z10 which does not have a physical keyboard.
MobileGO, 16 Oct 2015I don't care much about the physical keyboard but the phone looks really good.true that , :)
If they were smart enough to price it £350 it would be selling like chips, but as I see its gonna be like higher than £550 which will lead to disastrous sales. It will sell even worse than the new Lumias.
adlk, 16 Oct 2015me too, they should have launched similar device without the keyboard. holding a 5.4inch devic... moreU can hide it for god's sake. It's not like it will stick there forever opened and exposed
While I understand some BB fans over-hype things, it's funny how some folks have nothing better to do than bash BB or make biased comparisons. BB devices are very well built and are better designed to take punishment; that itself is a cost saver.
