geewaiho, 04 Jan 2017Shame they didn't add a track pad. Loved my. Blackberry classic and wish never sold it!!!!. T... moreThe trackpad is gone for good. It's the swipe keyboard they brought out with passport that replaced the trackpad
If the screen is 1920*1280, I will considere, if it's 1620*1080, like the rumor say, i'll pass.
willboyce, 04 Jan 2017It's real nice actually. Why would you bring this phone out with a low end processor special... moreBecause it clearly isn't designed to be used as a toy. BlackBerry does the basics the best. Calling, emailing, texting, checking and responding to notifications, shortcuts, typing etc.
Their modern qwertys can be customised to perform tasks after only one press of a button whereas other flagships take three or for.
Two-three times faster at performing a phones primary functions than any non qwerty device on the market. 625 chipset is fine. Epic battery life.
The DTEK60 was the worst phone I have purchased in a very long time. Everything, except external speakers, was below the competition.
PS- presume its asking too much to have it nano-coated to make its splash proof? This should be the standard for all handsets these days where devices don't have high IP67/8 ratings. Lots of us make calls/use our phone outside on wet days....
Based on the renders and new leaks by the TCL big wig, I have to say this is the first phone out of many in a long while (and I own quite a few both IOS and Android devices) that makes me saliva!
If the hardware is fast, with the Android software and BB security this could be a very tasty piece of kit indeed and I will definitely be getting one! I would still rather have a hardware keyboard over a soft one anyday as alot of people still would. I just hope that once announced, BlackBerry gets the device to market quickly rather than faff around for months one end during which time the excitement and momentum wears off then people forget about it...
its look like most of you totally dont get the market and didnt eve read whole article/source.
1. Not every phone on market need to be powerhouse for media/game consumption.
2. This phone have 4.2 screen.... its not made for media, its business device.
3. Because its business device, it doesnt need to have fancy screen and GPU. That chipset maybe is medicore, but in real life scenario and for that market, its perfect choose.
So yeah, next time look at device in wider perspective. Not everyone spend all their free time playing game and watching YouTube on their phones.
This aim for Business market and its for people who need device that is capable of working in specific environment(company apps, syncing and security).
People who think that all phones on market need to have 6inch screen and powerful GPU, remind me those millennials kids who take pictures using their iPads bought by their parents.
Shame they didn't add a track pad. Loved my. Blackberry classic and wish never sold it!!!!. This might have to be my next purchase.
Judging the specs it seems for south east asia / at least indonesia because of the mid-range specs
The 625 is a mid range chipset...by today's standards. 2 years ago it would have been an absolute screamer, and remember it only had to help drive a FHD screen. And it will just sip power, so battery life will be amazing. And being a business focused device, it won't have to run ultra demanding games: could be a device that gains a corporate following. I think it should be a compelling proposition for a lot of businesses as well as the Blackberry die hards. We'll see soon enough.
willboyce, 04 Jan 2017It's real nice actually. Why would you bring this phone out with a low end processor special... moreExactly! Aren't blackberry supposed to be the business class, advanced "smartphones"? Now they're just hanging around with midrange devices trying to hang on in the market.
And that camera module is H(y)uuuuuuuuuge!
