    I just upgraded from a Z10 to a Z30. I'm generally happy with the exception of the fixed battery. If it would have this, in addition to edgeless, I would be in bliss !

    My question is. BlackBerry is taking preorders on the leap, which by comparison to the z10, is an inferior device, am I wrong?

    If I'm right, then the leap does not make any sense.

    Is the Z30 BlackBerry 's flagship all touch phone? If so, this also does not make sense as the Z30 has been in my family for almost two years. This also does not make sense.

    Anyone know if BlackBerry is going to come out with an evolved version of the z10 or z30?

    Can the gurus chime in?

    Thanks!

    i have a Z30 and the Leap is a step backwards for me. Still holding out for a flagship device that is a successor to the Z30

    The leap is not for people looking for the Z30. It's for people looking for the leap.

    If any.

    The Leap is of the class: "sensibly-price-balanced devices that a company buys in discounted bulk, to hand out to its workforce", is it not?

    While the upcoming slider should handily serve the role of flagship, straddling the full-touch and physical keyboard divide (presumably perfectly useable without ever popping out the keyboard), at the cost of potentially being slightly bulkier and pricier than it could have been; The market segment for a smaller (at least sub 5 ") 16:9 device, like the Z10, is undeniably currently underserved, by the look of things... Maybe they could offer the slider in two sizes and kind of supplant the Z10, Z30 and Q10 in one stroke (EDIT: ...counting the Classic, with its specific targetting of audience, as a class of its own, rather than having anything to do with the Q10)... :7

    I agree, the slider should be for a smaller phone factor to offset any bulkiness. I think that a 5" Z10 size phone would be ideal, and then a 5.5 - 6" phone not bigger than the Z30 would be the way to go.

    ...also, why build "cheap" phones. Has that worked for Apple?

    It's not made poorly, it's just using older, less expensive components.

    I've said it before: it's not meant to be anything other than a low cost, solid enterprise performer for corporate drones. Just like the Classic. That's it. BlackBerry has farmed out the manufacturing risk as well - just like the Classic.

    Got it. Sorry, I didn't mean cheap, I meant inexpensive.

    So, to answer my question, I'm good with my Z30 then, right?

    Absolutely. Great device. Better than Leap.
