This phone will be trully OVER PRICED , thats what BB usually does , thats why they will never be one of the top selling phone ever again , come on BB give us a good price , and they will sell like hot cakes
Loosegear , 15 May 2018Loser! It's a great handset manI know what you mean. I just installed 'Button Mapper' and customised the onscreen buttons so that a single press does nothing, only a double press, or long press. Therein lies the advantage of Android, there is loads of flexibility and customisation for how you want to setup your phone. Unlike iOS where you have to 'hack' your phone and put your device and security at risk.
I got my daughter a BB Classic, and I'm finding my way around it. What I love about it is she has her own passcode to access the device, but I have a different passcode for 'Parent Control'.
Anonymous, 15 May 2018if BB has any brains they would bring back the 9900 with android something on it and get on wi... moreThey cannot bring 9900 with Android and batter live of 3 days. The difference is in the software - Android is a huge CPU (and battery) hog, compared to the original BB or BB10.
if BB has any brains they would bring back the 9900 with android something on it and get on with it.. they would sell a shed ton.... my 9900 is still going on BIS/GiffGaff email/twitter only but battery lasting for 3-5 days... ps: GG has free BIS service :)
This thing is phenomenal, so versatile, different, original and a breath of fresh air! Regardless of if it sells or not it's something unique that I'd always want to have like the Nokia e7. Just one beef with it though, why not go at least somewhat conventional and make the screen slightly bigger and taller in the same shell by using on screen navigation instead of these huge buttons. That would make it less complex (to make and repair) and it will gain like a 4.8 or 5.0 inch dislpay
This is exciting, hope we can get this in asia...
Duck of death, 13 May 2018RIP Blackberry. You had a good run.Why RIP? I think it's an excellent phone.
You had a good run.
SSA, 12 May 2018Need a successor for the Priv!!Would be great!
Note that a QWERTY slider Mod for the Moto Z series should be very close to mass production. Could coincide with the Z3 variant(s) release. So finally we have an alternative.
Nice phone with some upgrade. Hope this phone is with thin bezels and some amazing camera since comes with dual lens. Looking forward for this type of phone as less typing error.
Im on the Keyone and its a good phone, not great though. Good battery life, good enough camera, great keyboard, but yup still on android 7.1. I haven't even gotten the April security patch.
And i though Canadiens pcked their socks and left the battle :-)
As i see i thought wrong.
What a shame.
one of the dullest devices of 2018 ladies and germs! what is the meaningful difference and upgrade on it? I mean dual camera?! who cares?! trust me someone who is getting a BB keyone/2 is not a photo aficionado?! instad of a marginally upgraded chip and the camera, they should have got rid of that annoying TOUCH KEY above keyboard and make the screen larger!!! IT'S 2018/9 for PETE'S SAKE!!!
I have a bb keyone black edition and you are gonna be amazed how many times I misstouched the damn touchkey buttons while scrolling the finniky, choppy keyboard!
yet another FAIL for bb!!! RIP
The name is wrong, it should be Key 1.2.7 lol BB $$$
I would like Blackberry to release the successor of Priv as well without changing the design, except for metal frame and rear for better build quality, upgraded internals like Snapdragon 636 with a mid range price.
YoloBS, 12 May 2018Well pkb , slide phone, features phone still have market. all oem need to not overprised it.... moreIf selling 600 thousand phone a year (touch screen + pkb) is count as successful, then... Im speechless
