BlackBerry Torch w/BB10?
I love both the z10 and q10. My sister had the white torch with BB6. She liked it, but it got really buggy and didn't work well after some time, so she bought the 4S when it came out.
The torch is perfect. You can use touch or the keyboard. If BBRY made a new torch with BB10, same screen size and exact specs of the z10 with the slide out keyboard so you can use touch typing or keyboard typing, I would buy this.
Blackberry can't survive by making only TWO BB10 phones. The torch would be the best of both worlds.
And I hope it comes in black and white.
What do you guys think?

I am a big fan of the 9810 as well. On twitter breaks said that if they were to make one, it would not come until august at the earliest. I bet they will see what the reaction is to the Q10 before they really make up their minds.

I had my 9800 for 30 months and even though it looked a bit battered it never let me down. Got buggy at 20 months old so I replaced the battery and it performed like brand new.
I was desperate for a Q10 like device as I was reluctant to switch to full touch due to bad past experiences.
Couldn't wait any longer so on the 31st of January, after a month of stalking my carrier/network and harassing them for a release date, I became the proud owner of a brand new Z10.
I haven't looked back, it only took a couple of days to get used to the lack of physical keyboard and now I don't miss it at all.
Make the leap fellow torch owners, Embrace the Z10.

In early development, the Z10 was known as the L series and the Q10 was the N series.
In between these was the M series which was a Torch-style slider. For whatever reason, they benched the M series.
There are more models we might potentially see later this year, at the high and low ends.
The A series (or the so-called Aristo) is supposedly a spec monster superphone.
The R series would be a Curve equivalent.
No guarantees on any device this year besides the Q10 yet though, I'm afraid. Not even a single leaked photo of these other bad boys...

I for one would love to see a bb with this form factor. Maybe we will get lucky and when BB releases the Q10 they will announce the next model(s) of BB to hit the market. However I do think a torch with a screen the same size as a Z10 might be a touch to big.
I mean if they kept to the original size and extended the screen both up and down to the threshhold of the silver casing and also ditched the physical keys on the right and left of the mouse pad making the entire surface touch screen i could see it.
I would want them to keep the mouse pad on the front and in general. It just makes the phone seem more like a hand held computer rather than a bloody toy. Anyone have any thoughts on that?
