    Simple, do you like the BlackBerry Blade concept phone designed by the Toronto Design Firm PixelCarve? This company has worked before with RIM, and seems to have a good relation with them too.

    It looks interesting. Not to sure on the curved shape or 90 degree corners but other then that I like it.

    The name fit the design perfectly, reminds me of those knifes that you press a button and the blade shoots out, not just because of the straight edges of the sliding factor but also in the knife the dangerous part is hidden. LOL you think its just a regular touch screen and BAM out shoots the great physical keyboard we all know and love.

    it being a BB10 pone though we know they will do away with the buttons and go with the swipe gestures of the PB. So imagine it with a bezel around it, just a small one you don't want to loose to much screen space like they did with the PB and its golden.

    the quadcore chipset we know isn't happening, its going to be a duel core with the BB10s. the 720x1280 screen is going to rock the socks off everything and anything. the 12MP back and 5MP front are very realistic as there are phones out there that have those specs now. good aray of ports . MiniVGA and microHDMI are a great selling feature that the on-the-go business person will love.

    The curved form would be very comfortable to hold when surfing and working away. the LED light, that looks like its on the edges of the phone instead of a little blinking light is a welcomed change . would be interesting to see BeBuzz on this phone and your phone lighting up Disco in the middle of a meeting LOL.

    IMO, that's the kind of style and hopefully QNX functionality its going to take to get RIM back on the map so to speak. Even though I don't like slide phone factor, I would buy this ....it looks AWESOME

    I don't like the curved shape. It would be hard to type on if it were placed on a desk or on a table. If it had a flat shape, I would like it.

    I see why you guys aren't liking the curved shape, but you gota realize that they are not going to put out a phone that is like a boomarang, it is going to be ever so slightly curved (I would hope). The pics don't make it seem that curved, I would hope for maybe just a little less. It adds style to the devise. It also I feel like would be more comfortable for calling, and it would maybe better manage the tall height of the phone. NEED trackpad, and I would like to keep the four buttons,
    BEST phone ever

    Well from the picture it looks like it's a centimeter off the ground when it's laid flat. And that's kind of a lot. If it's like a little curved. Very little. It would be better.

    But I love it so far.

    Does anyone with insight on these type of things tell me if it's even possible to make a phone that thin? With a keyboard?

    But even if it's a little thicker. It's not bad. I'd still want one.

    And I've used the Playbook. You won't really need the four buttons if you have gesture swipes. But a trackpad would be good.

    love your descriptions about the blade. haha. its a nice name. I can imagine a phone test and the tester go, "Today, we're comparing the Razr & Blade." hahahahaha.

    though if the screen is going to be 720p, it would probably be 1280 x 750 instead of 720. So it would be the same aspect ratio as the PlayBook. Also i'd rather have a decent sensor and optics in 8mp rather than a normal 12mp though. its not the quantity that counts, its the quality.

    I tend to be rather dubious about slider phones BUT this concept design definitely makes me do a double-take. If something similar enough to it went into production, it would be rather hard for me to resist. The the LED lit strip around the outside edge is pure genius and worthy of a next generation design. I can see a more modest curve making it into production, a-la the Galaxy Nexus. RIM would ignore this design concept at their own peril.

    This just a mock up id assume they would put a Bold style keyboard in there, which is a huge hit with BB users.

    LOL that would be awesome compare LOL
    same aspect ratio for the PB would make more sense because it would make app development for BB10 a lot easier., to my understanding. I totally agree id rather have a better camera with less MP.

    It looks great. I like the Torch form / slider. Be great if this does go into production.

    The only part I don't like the look of is the curved back.

    I'd like to see what the new Bold form factor BB will look like when we see them in the future and probably go for that one.

    I like the phone and the curve vs flat makes it apart and ergonomic. I haven't found a person with a flat head, so the curve specially with the keyboard open should fit and look awsome.

    I like it and would buy it as a BB7 phone or a BB10 phone, but today I saw the Dell Venue Pro and realized where they got their design ideas:



    I'd still buy one though, if it were a BB.

    interesting. Thankfully, the blade looks even better than that- as borrowed or flat out taken as the design may be!
