i am lifetime blacberry fan but no 5G. make healthy 4g version please...
I am very excited with this news, I was desperately waiting for Blackberry new device. I am using BB classic since 2015 and have no issue while feels excellent towards productivity and also feels it's the easiest OS. I find BB10 is little shorter to android or iphone even though they have not released new OS since 2013. BB10 gives you everything whichever is necessary. Also it is a very solid device which doesn't break if falls. Only problem in this OS is apps limitation and small screen. I would like to buy BBOS device even today if they release BB11 or 12 OS.
Well thats a great news. Wish the Vertu brand will make new devices as well.

Reports in the aftermath claimed they weren't able to because a 1:1 aspect ratio was not officially supported, at least at the time. Has there ever been a 1:1 Android device?
I am using BB passport since more than 5 years without any issues. Best of luck BB for your future handset

bb is allowed to use it and could actually benefit from both worlds as they are able to adapt it's os and install android apps including google ones

they should return to the BB10 OS as it was unique with awsome stability and safety, still can't believe they quit that.
it was miles ahead with their os and its swiping motions kinda similar to what android 10 is aiming for today, not even mentioning the digital keyboard experience which was unlike any other, i would deffinetly return if they breath it into life again and pay apple prices for it.
they don't seems to understand the value of their own product BB OS
Bbkeyone has served me well but now they dont have security and os version updates.
BlackBerry stopped new phones also 5g is coming fast.
I was planning foldable phones but this news is relaxing.
Now I have a reason to continue using keyone for one more year.
Welcome back my old friend BB make a bold 9900 update please or Classic.
