    Default [Fan Made Concept] Tall Q10 anyone ?

    Was Just Wondering how many people would be interested in a form factor like this.

    Not a Slider .. But just a Tall Screened Qwerty device.

    I know it wont be the most ergonomic thing in the world ... but if the screen is just 4" .. might just work ?

    your thoughts ?

    Imagine the Qwerty Keyboard Always there, no need to slide it up, the full touchscreen is present no compromises on Pixels ... and the Bezel between the keyboard and the screen makes the gestures super easy.

    Lots would like that from what I've read but that's not for me. I'd rather scroll and not get laughed at.

    I would prefer a slider. A little chunkier but much shorter when you are just using the screen.

    I would sure appreciate renders with dimensions so the reader could be able to judge if the design is realistic.
    Or

    Paste in a Q10 with the exact same keyboard dimensions. Thanks

    Sorry. Nice rendering job but that is not a good looking phone. It looks really awkward. I guess it's just not for me.
    For the best typing experience only one brand does it the best. That brand is BlackBerry.
    BlackBerry. Nobody likes a typo.

    This is exactly what an iPhone 5 with that new typo keyboard case would look like. This would be so much better if it were a slider

    The only thing that I really don't like about my Q10 is the 1:1 aspect ratio. It makes watching any videos a pain and you have a more limited selection of apps, I mean I had to sideload Kindle because I couldn't get it in BlackBerry World for my device. I would really like a phone with a standard 16:9 aspect ration. That being said I think if your going to do that a slider would be the best option somewhere between 4.2 to 4.5 inch screen would be perfect for me.

    The concept is good. I think to the eye it is too long. If it were wider and not as long (proportions) it would rock. Build a Q30 and I am in. Dig my Z10 but miss many aspects of my 9900. (I still can't part with it) Oh and incorporate all the goods from OS 7.1 they left out in original 10 build.

    Just based on the looks it appears that that would be top heavy and unbalanced. Nice idea but the screen to keyboard difference seems unworkable.

    I kinda like it. Wish it would be shorter though. And please for people asking about usability on one hand or just nagging about its size I mean come on we live in a market with a note 3 and an xperia Z ultra so if ur ok with q10 stay with it and let Blackberry not miss... another potential... why not a 5.5 blackberry phablet and a sibling keyboard with the same form and shape but just with keyboard... that would be nice and ofcourse a sibling Q for the z30

    There are lots of people who wants this, myself included but of course the screen is too tall in the concept photo provided. I don't need a smartphone/light saber combo

    What is the ultimate BlackBerry? The ultimate BlackBerry would be a device with the screen size of the Z10 along with the physical keyboard of the Q10 and the battery life of the Z30. This, would be the ultimate BlackBerry. Why they haven't built it yet remains one of the greatest mystery of BlackBerry.

    Nobody in this thread mentions one-handed use of the device, but a crucial consideration on a device like this would be the ergonomics of the device when you are actually holding it to type on it, if a qwerty BB has a sub-optimal typing experience then the device should be binned as it is utterly pointless because if you want a typing experience that isn't quite as good as a q10 then you can go for an all-touch device.

    There is room for them to build a much bigger qwerty device, but it is vital that any design considers whether or not the device is usable in comfort when held normally.

    and i just realized, playing games in landscape mode, it would be difficult to get the thumb on the screen from over the keyboard

    It looks weird. And it'd stick out of a pocket. I'd see it snapping if half in no time.

    No. Maybe a 4:3 ratio screen with a suitable keyboard yes. But this no
