It would be awesome for someone like me that just wants a pysical keyboard (and the Bold 9930 is undisputedly the best physical keyboard out there) but I don't think so because I believe RIM wants full compatibility with the Playbook. It will be a beautiful gestures based phone with no keyboard. I hope that it does allow you to swap batteries though. Regardless of how much you prepare and plan for, things happen and I've gotten really low on battery in the past and just love being able to swap and go.
Here is my dream BBX phone: (just dreaming because I want my wife to joing the BB family - I still love her though .)
Still super secure, still leading e-mail and messaging but also:
1.2Ghz dual core processor that sips battery not guzzle it.
3.7" screen, like the current full touch screen Torch to 3.9" screen. Bigger may not work and if it is multi-media then smaller may not work.
gestures based UI that is just over the top courtesy of TAT
Small enough to easily carry in pocket but large enough to enjoy movies
It should come preloaded with:
An awesome voice navigation feature with TAT UI but one that does not kill you battery
an awesome stock quote tool
ans awesome weather app
BB Movies as well as other choices such as Netflix
BB Music as well as other choices such as 7digital
It should be able to run all the Playbook apps
It should be able to run the android player
It should be able to find BB friends like the Wikitude app
It should have video chat that works with Playbook and android phones. (I don't need it but my wife would like that.-video chat on our Evo's did not work well)
It should also support the $50.00 dollar per month savings Bridge feature vs 3g tablets.
RIM should embrace multi-platform phones and not try to restrict developers to only build for their platform with gimmicks and tricks. Also, avoid trying to restrict app developers like some have by taking away buy buttons on popular apps like Kindle and Google Books to push people to buy their own content.
I really find it hard to believe anyone will make a phone that will get me to give up my Bold 9930. I just love it. Finally I can say that. I used to say, yeah, my BB takes care of my priorities on a phone better than any other so I have a BB. I can still say that but now I can say I love the web experience, and youtube! Wow. really awesome and still the most secure phone out there with leading e-mail and messaging. But the above would be worth considering.

Yea...i did mean 2012 but after reading the responses i'm just hoping for 2102!!
Seriously, whats the point of all of this QNX talk if they arn't going to have QNX with keyboards?? Isn't the reason MOST of us stay with rim is because we want a full keyboard??

I cant imagine the Playbook OS working in an effective or productive way on a full keyboard non slider sadly, unless its a proper brick. You need a screen big enough to make use of the gestures and tacking an always available keyboard below that would make it huge.

And I really doubt that RIM would ever abandon us people that love hardware keyboards.

Without the keyboard, I have no reason to stick with a BlackBerry. I think RIM knows that a very large amount of their customers have chosen a BlackBerry because of the keyboard and will not abadon this. Some of the gestures you could surely use the trackpad for?

Oh I would just be lost without my Qwerty!!! I really don't touchscreen only, not if that is the only thing available. Every time I've had a touchscreen I've found myself reaching for the phone with the keyboard when I've needed to do something quickly and accurately.
I could learn to be without a keyboard, but I don't want to be without one. I hope BB doesn't forget about people like me....we're out here.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
