I'm confused right now. I'm using 2 BB with physical keyboard for daily use. BlackBerry OS 10 works perfectly for me. Passport is great for mailings, news, etc., Classic for all kinds of communication. I normaly change my phones every two years and stick to the brand - now I don'k know what to do? Switch to Apple? I just wanted to buy a new Passport SE...
ejrome05, 29 Sep 2016yes please #bringbackthekeyboard but don't price it that high.Agree.
Omg it's of no use having so many physical buttons in a phone.... Technology has been changed, people have been changed... Blacl berry is already almost dead due to such old century decisions. They had to make such things years back not now, what others are doing now, blackberry will decide to implement that several years ahead in future lolz.
Did he say, qwerty keyboard isn't going anywhere, everyone knows it's not going anywhere,
Indeed, it isn't going anywhere. It stays in the Blackberry museum.
Blackberry is a prime example of what happens when a company loses focus of it's market. All they needed to do to succeed in 2014-16 was make a Bold 9700 with a modern camera/CPU that ran Android and business users will buy them in droves. We don't care about watching Youtube or playing games on our business phones we just need a smallish phone with amazing communications.
The REAL solution to this is actually quite simple.
Find a phone with a removable backplate, and make an ALTERNATIVE backplate with a e.g. BT slider keyboard.
LG has played with the at the least slightly modular approach, so BB could build on that to give a better solution without extra battery/charging. They would only need to make the keyboard and not the entire device.
They could even offer both a LANDSCAPE and a PORTRAIT slider. Depending on how huge a phablet they use as the base device. Hoping for a phone sized device with a landscape keyboard is too optimistic
Tactile keypads will forever hold a special place in my heart. If i get too nostalgic, i might even consider getting that external physical keypad thing for the note 7.
How about making a keyboard case having many language not only english
I'd love to have the Physical Keyboard back! but not Portrait mode, i want it like the HTC Fuze or the T-Mobile 3G Slide! god i miss those phones...
They should have something like passport, classic,Q5,Q10.
Best of both worlds.
nice job BB.. physical keyboard is fine coz most tablet users purchase a Bluetooth keyboard so why not put it in one!!
