Upcoming BlackBerry Mercury with physical keyboard possibly spotted in a benchmark

17 October 2016
A leak from this summer said this model would launch in the first quarter of next year.

BB has been my choice for its OS, Kbd, erganomics and business grade hand held device. If OS itself is not BB then it is one of those millions of phones on the market. If these phones are capable of taking BB OS even at a delta escalated cost makes sense to own one, else I have no preference for it.

Finallyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!! another phone with a keyboard. They have heard my prayers. Black berry needs to understand that there still a demand for the physical key board phone, but we want it at a reasonable and affordable price.

While the priv is nice, it is veryyyyyyyyyyyyyy expensive and not the average person can afford it. So they decided to bring out the Dtek50 and Dteck60 which are more affordable but no keypad!!!! So this tells me you dont care to cater to the keypad lovers. Its either they buy the priv which to day has no reduction in price, or take a phone that is affordable like the dteks but yet your unhappy because it does not have a key pad.

Come December 31st 2016, I will no longer be able to use whats app on my black berry Q5 (which has a keypad), so I am now force to buy a phone which does not have a keypad, which unfortunately will not be a black berry, as they are other touch screen phones that are much cheaper than the Dtecks. So now black berry have now lost the sale for a phone as i cannot afford the priv and they dont have any other mid range phone with keypad that can work with whats app come the 31st december 2016. I am hoping that black berry can save the day by launching a keypad phone sooonnnnn, like December 2016.

In fact if blackberry releases same with updated SoC, camera, gorilla glass and battery juice, it will be a great seller.

I have waited for a QWERTY BB + Android for 4 years. This will be their comeback. BB OS was OK, but we all missed the essential apps. Mark my words: BB + QWERTY + Android (non slide, tho i've the Priv which is more of a tablet hehe) will be their comeback like the Bold days!

I was very disappointed with the Classic, but really wanted to love it. They should have put a faster processor and touch sensitive physical keyboard. But most importantly, BlacBerry should have spent time and money increasing their App library. I really think that's what held them back. It's happening with Windows 10. The phones were fine and the OS is not any worse or better than what iOS and Android hasve to offer. But the App gap is really a turn off.
