probably going to be overpriced again :eek:

they need to start competing with other devices on the market. although i would take a peak at the keyboard integration - not sure how to get the best of both worls - keyboard and touch screen

Is it just me but a smartphone with a keyboard seems like an oxymoron ...

Maybe older people will prefer an on-screen keyboard - the fonts are larger.

Na. I still like it them. I miss my keyboard. Sure full screen devices look good and are great for surfing the web, vids and games but as a business tool the KB makes sense.

I'd like to go back to the clam shell design though... protects the screen and I think we could go back to slightly smaller screens. Even just for battery life.

My last clam shell phone was the one I loved the most.

I certainly do, a 5.5" landscape on-screen keyboard is a vast improvement on those piddly little buttons in the promo video.

I hate virtual keyboards, if I can get a phablet with a physical qwerty :eek:

I switched to iPhone 7 Plus from Blackberry Passport in September 2016. I am enjoying the iPhone, but miss the BB Keyboard and HUB.
