This doesn't have that, so either they include the touch sensitive keyboard that the BB Passport has, or we're stuck constantly tapping text fields on the screen...
It's going to be frustrating to use.
I used to have an android mobile with a qwert keyboard.
It doesn't have arrow keys like this one and I had to touch the screen on some occasion, when typing obviously I needed to use the hardware keyboard.
Anyway who wants to get a phone this size. It's not smart at all. Height shouldn't be bigger than 4 inch phones to look smart.
What they need to do is to produce a customised android which is comfortably usable on a hardware like Blackberry Classic.
Looking pretty neat. Could be the replacement for my Classic.
That will probably depend on whether any carriers in my country offer it though.

Most tipsters and rumours indeed claim it'd be Snap625.
This could mean some good news for its price tag but look at the Priv. It came with the 808 instead of 810 but it was one of the (if not THE) most expensive phone at launch (excluding them jewellery designer branded ones).
I see my LG V20 replacement if this comes to VZW. Been wanting a phone with a physical keyboard for a long time.
Now if they would just put Windows Mobile on it, then it would be perfect.
This device is built for business productivity, not watching videos, or playing games. The capacitive keyboard doubles as a track pad, has a space key fingerprint sensor and provides users with the ability to add up to 35 customisable hotkey shortcuts which can perform tasks within apps after only a single touch. The chipset will be a 625 to ensure colossal battery life.
