    Hello people.
    Me again, now with a little less conceptual in terms of a form-factor, but still quite unusual concept of a BlackBerry variation.
    I've been tipped by Vladi to make a try on creating something with a mix of Rado Swiss watches and good ol' Canadian Blackberry. Previously He did a terrific job in combining some signature elements from both worlds in one peice so I've decided to take a step further. So here it is, Rado Sintra Smartphone. The goal was not to put some lipstick on existing BlackBerry lineup, but to create something aggressive, something that will stand out from both crowds of luxury smartphones and regular ones yet showing clear resemblance to both BlackBerry and Rado world.

    As always, I don't quite care about cores, megapixels and gigabytes, so I'll just point out trademark Rado Hi-Tech ceramics body, "Phantom" keyboard keys, iconic BlackBerry notification LED and that's pretty much it for now, but just for now, it hides a few more interesting features that I'll try to showcase a little bit later with fresh renders.

    Cheers and thank you for watching.

    I feel like they're backlit. Nook-esque.

    Yes, exactly, they are backlit when active and disappear when the phone is in standby

    And I'm back, sorry for such a long pause, took part in one amazing project of resurrecting QWERTY slider phones for real. Now I have time to finally finish what I've planned for this guy, and while I'm making it, here's some small token for you

    And as a final touch here's my solution for hiding USB port and sim card slot within this solid creamic/titanium body - "gull wing" doors

    And one last (I promise) update, just for the sake of history. I've created a nice overview video of the model along with some fancy Behance page, feel free to take a look!
