looking forward to the physical keyboard...i am still using BB Q10...waiting for mercury
Hey TCL! In the old days I wanna buy BB Priv...but i cant - tragic availability in stores, very poor availability mobile operators, and... sorry, but even price of Samsung Gallaxy S decreases after some time, and BB rather than reduce the price disappeared from market. BB dont cared about other markets than the US, maybe UK, But what about rest of Europe, rest of the world?
Can't wait for this device. Hope it's easier to purchase than the passport, priv and dteks. Can't expect something to sell well if it's hard to get your hands on.

I have a plan to replace my motorola nexus 6. Considering Mi max or Mi5s+ as budget is the first to me. If this new BB powered by 821 snapdragon with dual lens and micro sd slot is less than US$400 i'll buy it.
Looks nice. Hardware kwyboard, large battery for a couple days use and a decent size screen..... very nice.
So long has it been that i need to go back to my roots with hardware keyboard.
My e72 is lacking in a few areas but gets me by.
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2017The problem will be that Blackberry (TCL) will price the phone like it has an 821 chipset in it.They price their phones like they are a super hit company with super hit phones...
they need to wake up.
The thing is, it's rumoured to have 2 versions. A SD821 version (Premium) and a SD625 version (Mid Tier).

That physical keyboard smartphone ship sank long ago. Only John Chen and a small percentage of the smartphone industry believes this is what the market still wants.
Why won't Chen go with top notch specs? Why won't he continue to put money into handsets without a physical keyboard or with BBOS 10.x and give incentives to developers? The problem with the Z10, Z30 and other BBOS 10.x devices was that the devices were overpriced for a sub-flagship spec phone and that Chen has put ZERO effort into developing the BBOS 10.x ecosystem. Hang it up Chen. You are clueless.
And 821 would mean rocket sled performance...625 means solid performance but the battery would last 2 days even with reasonable usage. Interesting tradeoff...
