Hmm question is who still makes QWERTY keyboard Android phones besides BB?
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2016BlackBerry has signed an agreement with PT. BB Merah Putih to produce Android powered phones i... moreIt's only for content-join of BBM, so BB Merah Putih is only organizing BBM in Indonesia. Not get into developing process or phone-making.
vijay krishnan, 29 Sep 2016I like physical keyboards. I want the original haptic feedback while typing on a keyboard.Same here! I never liked touchscreens and that's why I still have classical Nokia phones with physical keyboard! At least they should retain one keyboard phone because there a lot of people who still want them...
BlackBerry has signed an agreement with PT. BB Merah Putih to produce Android powered phones in Indonesia.
If Thorsten Heins continued as CEO BlackBerry would have continued stubbornly like HTC making touch devices like Z10 and Z30 and talking the BB10 OS to the next level as it deserves.
I have an iPhone and a Priv, Hands Down Priv is the best, if you go for the Bigger iphone like the S or the Plus, then the typing issue is not there, or else typing on the iphone 6 that i have got, trust me it is not that easy, and and the Display i would say Amoled is great than LCD, watching videos on Priv is an awesome experience, and Google integration with Calendar and other stuff is beyod the limits of iPhone, i like iPhone just because it feels good, other than that it is just an app Launcher for me. I were to think of a new Phone, I would go for Argon AKA DteK60 :)

I never use the PKB on Priv but it's so much fun using the keyboard to browse pages / apps, or use it as shortcuts or to simply feel the movement of the mechanical slider and easily hold the phone without having to touch the screen.
It feels great to have something that's different from the pack. I realize not everyone feels that way.
Actually priv has not developed as per the expectation.all the functions are on it nd it does not balancing to other latest smartphones.mainly its 2mp front camera.now a days people are interested to buy a phone having atleast 5mp front camera.and battery percentage on edge is not showing longer.only while plugg in charger.i feel the better specification as its physical key board.it is not disturbing any one who uses and it quite hidden under the display screen.come on BlackBerry....we expect from u a come back with good specs.latest versions,advanced technology and economic phones.
cobby1, 29 Sep 2016I love querty...Same here! you can actually type while looking at something else, and the error rate is almost non-existent. unlike the typical virtual keyboard nowadays, you're already looking at the screen to type and you commit a lot of misspelled words in the process.
sometime in the next couple of years. Typical of Mr Chen he's all time loser.
Tanii, 29 Sep 2016Omg it's of no use having so many physical buttons in a phone.... Technology has been changed,... morebecause today kids didn't know physical keyboard can be type without looking at screen
ejrome05, 29 Sep 2016yes please #bringbackthekeyboard but don't price it that high.Q5 q10 were best
Tanii, 29 Sep 2016Omg it's of no use having so many physical buttons in a phone.... Technology has been changed,... moreYes, a side slider it is a great device, probably you never owned one. Priv wasn't a success because:
- was technically outdated since the day one,
- terrible expensive,
- sliding keyboard on portret mode, and
- silly name.
Sefy, 29 Sep 2016I'd love to have the Physical Keyboard back! but not Portrait mode, i want it like the HTC Fuz... moreI love the physical keyboard too. Also, on landscape mode - I used to have an Nokia E7, excellent build quality slider! A QWERTY slide keyboard fits excellent on a 5.5", and keys big enough for guys with big hands.
Of course, not for $750!
ZTE Axon 7 = $399. How much can cost to add a sliding side keyboard? I'm willing to pay $440 for a good quality slider, identical specs.
