The design is very beautiful and wonderful, but if stretched length-to-width ratio will be more beautiful and the camera lens is more than the surrounding surface and the level will be more beautiful body.

OS looks ugly compared to BB 10

I hope it's not too expensive. It should be cheaper than lg g4 and Samsung s6. I will buy if the price is cheaper than lg g4 dan samsung s6.

Or they should make 2 similar products like bb q10 and bb q5. One is premium and one is middle.

At last, android smartphone with qwerty physical keyboard. I'm very happy with this news.

BlackBerry products always kept me coming back on three points - security and trust; build quality; exceptional and usually unbelievable usage times... Even with HEAVY usage.

As it is the BlackBerry "Priv" is tempting, due to BlackBerry's notoriously high build quality and famous security standards...

I think the Sony products still (just!) edge ahead because of the water-proofing, but if the "Priv" can achieve BlackBerry Bold-like usage times (1+ full days of Real World HEAVY usage, 2+ full days of Real World MODERATE usage, 3+ full days of Real World LIGHT usage), I'm sold, without question.

"While the new device will provide a choice in OS to new and existing customers, the company remains committed to the BlackBerry 10 operating system"

as much as i interested with their Android, that statement makes me happy because i really...really...really love BB OS10. Thank you Blackberry, look forward for your new phone ~

"CEO John Chen says he has kept his promise to only do an Android if it can reach the high security standards of the company," lol just say you had no other option but to join the dominating dark side because you tried everything and it didn't live up to the consumers standards.
