Describe "The Market". The masses have flocked to Apple and Samsung, largely for the apps and image. I'm part of a market that needs a serious business tool. My world isn't governed by social media therefore I look for a device to help me do a few things very well. I believe the a manufacturer aligns their beliefs with their user. Blackberry knows business users. Apple knows the 20 somethings that believe there running the world. I'm in the minority I know. Happy BB still has the chops to jump back in !

Also, this is Android OS, not iOS. The Idiot in Charge at Blackberry still thinks a QWERTY phone is what the market wants. How have those 4-5 other QWERTY phones on Android and BBOS been selling?

Enough said.

@ Sandy:

If it was half the price it would be a win, but that price isn't justified by the hardware.

I think that's a disappointing name change. Still, the phone looks incredible, so I guess I'll just get used to it..

The 625 is not bad, but to price it that high... its asking for disaster.

Android huh, RIP BB OS.

PREMIUM look phone N i believe with premium build quality and midrange chipset and absolutely with midranger performance. So people, this phone is for status, not for a kid to play game, students who crazy with selfie, or low budget people who said this phone is overprice. Status and premium impression is expensive. Look at iPhone, what its carry and how is the price? Same in case, for status.

Also, yeah, Mercury was a better name than KEYone, but oh well, this phone is still awesome, at least in my opinion.
