    People loved this keyboard after getting used to it.

    I think a curved keyboard on the 9900 is a lot better then straight ones on the q10. Don't know why they scrapped it??

    It differentiates itself further from the old BBOS phones. Looks a little cleaner and more modern. Takes up less usable space.

    I hope that's not the final form. Otherwise I'm going to have to pass.

    It's not even close to finished but i need an opinion. Should i put round corners at the bottom or not? I've seen pictures of a supposed Q30 protective case and they all have sharp edges.

    What do you think of it so far?

    My vote is that it'll have sharp corners, like the Z3 and the protective cases leaked online.

    Thats looking great mate but I dont think there's much hope for the 4 row keyboard

    I thought I read a while back that they had tested straight keyboards vs curved keyboards and that the straight keyboard ended up being more accurate.. but I can't find where I read that now...

    Very interesting pictures, actually.

    Note that the spacebar is MUCH different from what we saw on the first prototypes. This looks at least somewhat more usable. Remember as well that there's the chance that this keyboard is touch-sensitive and swipeable, which would make it unique. It's not completely impossible that the keyboard could act as a massive touchpad.

    This is an interesting handset. I'm not likely to spring for it myself, as I'm waiting for the new full-touch hero phone, but I think they're doing something new, different, and distinctive. I'm intrigued.
    Some of us Q10 owners have an early version of the touch-sensitive keyboard, it puts in letters for us without us needing to press the keyboard!

    Why is BlackBerry continuing with the 1:1 screen ratio? I am very curious about this...

    I still think they could have taken the Z10, put a physical keyboard at the bottom and rake in the cash. I see no benefits to the square screen....

    a Z10 with the keyboard below it would be a pretty tall phone, no? And going off of the Q10 I have and the Z10's i've held, it seems like it would be super uncomfortable to hold and type with its weight distribution.

    sadly i'm not replacing my Q10 any time sooner.. It seems like BlackBerry is not going to offer me a device that i can really use.

    The Q30 seems to have a stupid keyboard layout and the Q20 it's basically a Q10 with a toolbelt.

    Q20 could be aa q10 with track pad. But q30 is a flagship device.It has got superb screen quality, good ppi,bigger screen, bigger battery, lighter body,better front and rear camera,a touch sensitive keyboard which accepts gestures to scroll down web pages and emails.Last but not the least all goodness of 10.3.What more required?

    The spacebar must be always under the letters not between them, the Q30 can have a bigger screen, a bigger battery, more memory, better cameras and a touch sensitive keyboard but it fails on the most fundamentally thing on a physical keyboard device, the keyboard layout.

    I don't know about the rest of the world but Nokia was quite popular in Europe, i owned a Nokia 3660 back in 2003 and some of my friends had a different version the 3650, both versions were flagships. That 3650 was a big failure, completely identical phones but with different keyboard layouts, all the people i knew dumped that phone because they couldn't use it.

    Hold your horses. Let's see the official release and play around with it and then decide. Your point is well taken,however I am sure BlackBerry will have some fixes or other plans for which they decide the location of space bar
