I wonder if BlackBerry would every do something so daft as a longer Q10 with a 1280 x 720 screen. it would probably be about 7" long but you know, 7" is a pretty nice length, actually.I was tapering off. I'm all tapered out now.

We should see another Q10 by Spring/Summer of '14. Slightly updated specs, but otherwise very similar. That's just a guess on my part; no inside info at all.

I would love to see one for sure, but only if they optimised bb10 for physical keyboard devices. Things like speed dial in home screen, holding the 'a' button to lock the phone, holding 'Q' to switch to vibrate mode, and customisable home screen keyboard shortcuts. If they don't implement these, or make more use of the keyboard, I won't buy one.

Honestly, In my opinion, this is what the Q5 should have been.
I can see from my short time on the forum, that BB7, legacy and especially 9900 users, will only tolerate a small, Bold like form factor, and rejection of a larger and or longer phone, would be swift.
But for smartphone users like myself, a larger/longer than Q10 screen with a physical Qwerty attached, is a major selling point, and had BB opted for an option similar to that vision at launch, or at least at the time of the Q5s arrival, I would have been a first day launch adoptor.
BB needs products users of android and windows phone 8 want, and they need the effective marketing that has iOS customers, cueing round the block and sleeping on the streets to be the first to buy.

Hummmmm, there is a lot of used space above the screen whether the BB logo rests today. If the bb logo removed the less space used instead to lengthen the screen, what could this do to the display size? 3.2? 3.5? While keeping rest of size the same.

[QUOTE=Alex_Hong;8986646]Here's a concept I did. I could fit a 3.5" display on a phone only about 1mm taller and wider than the Q10. The way I imagined it, the glass curves into the sides, allowing the screen to be closer to the edge will still maintaining the usability of the side bezel gestures.
This looks similar to the Dev Alpha units to me.
I like the Q5ish shape and Q10 keypad, not so sure the frets look so good on this shape though, kinda prefer the more plain Q5 keypad to go with this shape.
Also like the thin outside screen bezel but think the up swipe gap needs to be a little larger like on the Q5.
When is BlackBerry going to introduce a virtual onscreen trackpad as an option, to restore faith in full control of editing text for BB7 and legacy users?

Yes, I have tried full touchscreen editing on Windows 8, both RT and full Windows 8 and it sucks too.
It is simply that there is no way a touchscreen can be as good as a physical control just due to the nature of the controller. Some people tolerate touchscreens better than others but I see full touchscreen editing along the lines of using a ssd drive as a pointing device.
What? An ssd isn't a pointing device? Neither is a touchscreen but just like a touchscreen it is a more "modern" invention than a Track pad, but because a touchscreen is slightly better than an ssd as a means to position an insertion point, people accept that eventually your insertion point will end up almost where you want if you are persistent with a touchscreen, that makes it "better" than a trackpad, but a track pad that let's you position your insertion point precisely instantly is horrible because it's not "modern".
"Mobile Computing" without a physical keyboard and pointing device is simply not feasible. Assertions to the contrary are proven false time and time again... well, except by those for whom mobile computing means not actually ACCOMPLISHING anything, because of COURSE you need a full keyboard and mouse to write a scientific journal article or draw a digital art masterpiece... so I guess if you limit "Mobile computing" only to rudimentary tasks, only then is full touchscreen "mobile computing" even a thing.
This took almost 15 minutes to compose on my Z10. On a slider with a Trackpad, probably less... but I COULD have had the choice to just use the touchscreen if I wanted. Right now my choice consists of insipid blue circle tap miss tap again tap blue circle appears tap tap tap THERE now the damn insertion point is where I want it. As a former BBOS device user all I can say is "how do you people live like this?"

I definitely agree with you and would gladly give up screen size for physical navigation keys and a trackpad. Just wanted to point out that while the fine cursor work is still a bear, it is at least improved in the 10.2 leak.
