This made my day!
Had the KeyOne, the Key2 LE and upgraded to the Key2 after that. Using a keybord for any kind of commandline interface is 'key' (pun intended). Love it with Termux.

If they will neglect the regular updates for their Android phone, this will be dead on arrival IMHO. They have to prove to the world that they are serious in providing security in communication by releasing timely bug and security updates

So happy to hear that...lov u BB

People are tired of cartels, lack of choices in the mobility space with ever increasing prices for mobile phones. We need additional two major OS and brands that takes minimum 30% of the market share from iOS & Android together! iOS may soon become history with their attitude towards developers

So happy to hear that news, especially the fact that it will have physical keyboard. I use Blackberry PRIV right now and I love that sliding out keyboard, makes life so much easier when you have to do a lot of typing and writing....and when u don't need it you can just hide the keyboard inside and use phone like normal with touch screen, I love this "best of both worlds" and I hope next phone will be something similar. Can't wait to see when it comes out.

Thank God! hopefully you wont price it with flagship price then with mid range specs.

Go Blackberry. I hope they do well. And that they do come out with an innovative, unique design with a keyboard. Hopefully it's compact. The world could do with phones that aren't just all glass shovels.

Good to hear. I've been using BBs since the first ones. Nothing better than a real keyboard. Have a KeYone and the phone is a tank

The fact that it says, not focused on the general consumers hints it's not going to be top line specs. That's really sad. Whatever the design, hope it has powerful specs to last a few years and possibly all the productivity they keep talking about.

P.s. typing this from a blackberry phone
