    So I had a teenager positively comment on my phone the other day then again today a kid up in Philadelphia from Florida (I suppose because of the hurricane) seen my phone as I was walking by (passport se) and immediately called me over to see it and said "is that, that new blackberry man(?) it's freaking ridiculously AWESOME, looks like a tablet. Where do I get one?" and I explained how it was BB10 but that from what I heard the Keyone is pretty a sweet deal and the only android I would use if I did go that way as well as how it has a 3:2 screen which is spectacular.

    Anyway, point is, I think BlackBerry (and tcl) made it! It's official imo. I think they sealed the deal.

    People are recognizing BlackBerry again as in even younger kids who shouldn't I suppose from their parents or it just being with a physical qwerty and unique. They like it, they want it. The others want it as they remember and had a BB at one time... its working!

    #GoBlackberry Key 1 !!

    I will be awaiting the Key2 with stereo sound. Hopefully with tool belt doubling as the back, recents and home keys as I thought of original and somebody else mentioned here on Crackberry with allot of agreeable folks as in why waste that space if can have that just the same? Especially on the devices and with the people purchasing the qwerty blackberry's love physical buttons. It would rock! Also keep the screen as wide as possible that still functions with droid. I do not mind the black bars on media as there is always a solution to fill screen that is barely noticeable at least to me! Also with the wider screen people (even myself whom knows the truth with the passports) think it's a larger screen because it feels like one and in a way it is and makes a ton more sense as you are in a way getting a smaller screen with 4.5 that saves massive battery yet get the feeling of a 6 inch screen. I wonder how exactly the K1 feels? It doesn't look wider in the videos however I am sure it must be a tad? #WorkWide

    "Android is to advanced to handle a 1x1" is the funniest thing I ever read on Crackberry. JS.. it may not handle it as not sure myself but I wouldn't say that it's because it's "to advanced" just because blackberry is innovative and old tv's used to be the same. Tv's and mobile phones are different so whom's to say what should be or will be? I suppose apple as seems they stole more from blackberry recently!

    Back on topic,
    Point is though, I am Very happy for blackberry, especially in since they are transforming the android to look like BB10 More and more so my spirits are lifting higher and higher. They also stayed with a odd size screen. So far, so Great!...

    I won't lie though, I will always wish that it was all based off of QNX in the backround but 3/4 of a loaf of bread is better then no bread! I hope soon they get thier android looks and swiping fully like BB10 however they will probably need a tad higher end specs to run it this way until optimization comes in year later sort of like touchwiz was a heavy hated launcher the until it just became heavy but work'able.

    Again, proud of blackberry I mean tlc, I mean blackberry!



    Seriously it must be tough to work with another company like that in sync. Maybe they will make enough to buy tcl and just becomes blackberry themselves again. ..or maybe (hopefully not) the reverse will occur. Haha.

    The more time goes by the larger the population grows that has never experienced a qwerty device. It's easy to understand how the KEYone has helped reintroduce blackberry to the public.

    Yeah as a former Hockey Coach I told the kids they couldn't play center unless they could prove to me their parents traded-in their Samsung/Iphone for the latest Blackberry. And then I would show them the Passport, and told them this was the phone of choice for SpongeBob Squarepants....only
    kidding just wanted to see if they were paying attention.

    I suppose this could work for Baseball/Basketball/Football/Soccor ...but there's something in the silver skate blades, Black puck and logo that looks like the webbing of a Hockey Net.... that reminds them of a Blackberry

    I beg to differ. I think it's because they saw someone on Snap Chat and Instagram on a device with the name BlackBerry branded somewhere on it, or they noticed that the OS looked similar to theirs. That's all that kids know. Ask em to write you a sentence using just cursives ... GOOD LUCK!
