    It is very improbable that BlackBerry will produce a new BB10 phone.

    Definitely nothing for this year. Highly unlikely after that.

    I don't know how you could make a business case to convince Chen to approve another new BB10 phone.

    I'll be less of a nay-sayer than most have been in this thread and elsewhere. If BlackBerry continues to stay in the hardware game with Android phones, meaning that they go forward with these two rumored devices and see some positive results, then I think it becomes possible after that to offer a new bb10 phone. There will have been enough pursuit of Android that a token bone thrown to the BlackBerry 10 crowd won't be criticized. It too could be made by someone else, in keeping with BlackBerry's software posture. On the other hand, i don't think we'll ever see three new bb10 phones out at the same time again, like we did a year ago with Passport, Classic and Leap. Android is indeed the road that BlackBerry will largely follow as long as they keep offering hardware.

    Truly unfortunate as I have never know any other phone then a blackberry! My Passport will be the last blackberry to own.

    I would have never thought that a phone for business, my only choice is the IPHONE

    All because of my CRM used is only available ios. Android is not supported.

    Chen himself has noted the common roots of BB10 and Android. Maybe Blackberry eventually will be able to deliver a customized Android that mimics BB10. I love BB10, but if they can reproduce it with an Android phone, I won't be so sad to see BB10 go.

    Still, I'll work this Q10 till it dies or I do, whichever comes first.

    I agree but i think the Android strategy will evolve into software only. They will provide security suite and software package for OEMs that give some of the Blackberry experience. i don't see them ever making worthwhile money making android handsets but i do see them eventually returning with their own OS if they can become profitable.

    If the market really wanted a third player, you'd see a third OS with better marketshare. MS has the money and resources and can't really move the needle even with cheap phones since the flood of cheap entry level Android models.

    Market share starts from 0.

    Question is more towards whether anyone wants to be a strong contender.

    From the looks of it, no one has the balls.

    Not a Disney movie. Just because someone builds and markets it does that mean people will buy it. Surface phone if and when it ever happens will be proof of this.

    There may never be any more BlackBerry phones if the KeyOne fails, let alone any BB10 phones.

    Sure, market share starts at 0, but you need to offer something that market wants. Or, in the case of what Apple did, makes the market think it wants.

    BlackBerry couldn't do that 4 years ago when it still had a measurable share of the market, and certainly can't now.

    To be fair, all of their lost progress was due to lack of resources being put in, a complete pivot away from mobile, a reboot of mobile during it all, removing features, other mismanagement and Nadella rather having MS work on other things. I don't think Nadella would've kept the Surface line if it didn't take off before he got in the driver's seat.

    Of course on the other hand, breaking into a solid third-place footing would've taken earth-shaking resources that MS probably didn't think was worth it.
