    I see lots of posts about things people miss from legacy devices and this is one that I miss. It was great as a hardware button for the camera but, as I recall, it could be customized for any function you like.

    I think I'd like to see this make a return eventually.

    It only has a couple of purposes now, and I agree. You can't program it. Maybe it will happen!

    the convenience keys on my first bb, an 8520, were a big part if what sold me on bb in general. Camera and BBM, the two things I used most at the push of button, without needing to look at the device. Innovative!

    You realize that all keyboard BlackBerry 10 devices can use the entire keyboard as a convenience key?

    Isn't this feature available on 10.3.2 series OS?

    It's available on 10.3.1 and I did realize that. It's not the same as a completely different button on the outside of your phone though. I hadn't realized previously though, that the camera does actually use the volume up and down buttons to take pictures, along with the spacebar. This is cool and makes me happy.

    Excellent...but I did read in some CB article that the keypad will be taking on an expanded feature role in 10.3.2
