    Default Poll: What form factor should the next all touch BlackBerry take?

    The recent CrackBerry poll showed us that approximately 73% of respondents were hoping to see a new BlackBerry all touch screen device to compliment the new Passport and Classic devices. The numbers are in, 73 percent of CrackBerry readers still want to see another all touch BlackBerry released | CrackBerry.com

    Reading through the comments section, it seemed there were quite varied opinions regarding just what this new all touch device should be. My own thoughts are that BlackBerry's next al touch should be an updated version of the z10 form factor. I purchased a z10 on the first day it was available in Canada and I think it is the perfect size for a phone. My friend has a z30 which I find too large of a form factor and my girlfriend has an iPhone 5s which I find to be just a bit too small. For me, the z10 is the perfect form factor and if it were updated with higher end specs and (most importantly) vastly improved battery life I would gladly be first in line to purchase this new version.

    So what do you think CrackBerry nation?? What form factor should the next BlackBerry All Touch Device take??

    I do like the 5" screen of the Z30 over the smaller size of the Z10, but perhaps the next full touch phone (if there is one) can make do with shaving off parts of the size that aren't the screen. Like the chin.

    I totally agree with you. I love my Q10, but just got a Z10 and find it the perfect size. (so is the Q10).
    I carry my phone everywhere on my belt. Bigger than this would be uncomfortable.
    As phones keep getting bigger, they also become less portable. That's why I also have an iPad.
    An updated Z10 sized form factor would certainly catch my eye!
    So would a 3/4 ratio, but that's not happening!

    When I gaze at my Z10, sometimes I fantasize that all the extra black part around the screen was part of the screen. I think that would be amazing. However, from my HTC One M8 I also know that a bigger device is the price I have to pay for beefed up internals like the BoomSound speakers and extra goodies. I guess my dream device would have a 5 inch display, thin bezels, and only enough extra space to accommodate beefed up internals.......Wait I just described the M8 lol. So...BB10 in an M8 body, I guess .

    I agree with the op, beefed up Z10 would be just fine by me.

    I have a z30, had a z10 before that. My kids have it now. I liked my z10, but I'm not going to lie, the extra screen on the 30 is pretty nice once you get used to it. I would be OK with another z10 sized phone as long as it worked like the 30 and had the good battery life to match. Watching media and reading on the 30 is just nicer along with the kick *** speakers. I say do both. Another z10 size with more umph and another z30 size beefed up. I'm not going to say I wouldn't try a qwerty if that's all I could get but I'd really hate to see that happen.

    For me it would be z10 size but without the top and bottom bezel bits. Same screen area though.

    Z10 size is perfect for me. Keep the top and bottom bezels but put Playbook-like front-facing speakers in them. Add bigger battery too (thicker back).

    That's my perfect device. Not likely to happen though, since BlackBerry seems to be focusing on enterprise now.

    I was thinking a touchscreen version of the Passport. Same specs as the Passport, just with a touchscreen instead of a keyboard.

    Thoughts: Full Touchscreen Passport Variant

    Z10 from factor with z30 backing would be ideal.

    How about charging contacts for docks or wireless charging as a standard feature. None of this carrier exclusive stuff that seems to be the growing trend.

    I think a triangular device would sell millions, in a pinch it can be used as a Shuriken .

    Having had a z30 I'd go with an updated z30. Maybe a in between a z10/30 and have a 4.7ish screen thin bezels upgraded everything

    I have two personal objections to a Z10-sized phone and one business objection.

    Personally, I've gotten used to the larger screen on the Z30, and I'd have trouble going back to something smaller. As well, I'm concerned that a smaller handset doesn't have room for a sufficiently large battery.

    The business objection? HTC, Sony, and Samsung all build smaller versions of their flagship phones, and all of them sell at a fraction of their big brothers. To me this is a strong indicator that this us a niche segment.

    Something between would be nice - Better specs than Z30 but 4.5" or 4.7" would be nice I have Z10 and Z30 if I had to choose another phone it'd be Jolla / If I had to choose from the poll menu it'd be ud-ver Z30 but I find that answer to be misleading to my actual needs.

    For some of us ONLY a BB10 slider will do. I like the screen size of a Z30 complete with all the physical buttions of the Classic.
    Please make me one.

    Z10 size but with a 4.7" full HD screen. There is plenty of bezel space on the Z10 that can go away and turned into screen space. I'd be fine if the ditched the removable battery for an extra 1000 mAH of battery power, and may even deal with OLED too if it is a great screen. More RAM, more non-removable memory (32GB).

    I'm hoping for updates to both the Z10 and Z30 form factors so we can have options, but I believe my ideal phone would be a 4.7" all-touch phone that has little bezel.

    BlackBerry needs to come out with two updated versions with better specs of the z10 and z30.

    I totally agree for the updated version of the z10 they can have a bigger screen with all that space used for the bezels.

    Patiently waiting for the next high end version of the z30.

    I agree BlackBerry totally needs to update the Z10 and Z30. Better camera, processor and updated design especially for the Z10.

    Or if they brought PlayBook esk function to the border that would be nice

    Z10 with the same battery life as the Z30.
    And sound
    Although now that I got used to the Z30, I like the size. Definitely not bigger IMO
