    Sure. Whatever works best for you buddy. BlackBerry is for security not photoshoots. If camera is what you're looking for.. Don't bother looking for a BB.. Unless it's a PRIV... PRIV has the best blackberry camera I have ever encountered on a BB. But ya.. Good luck with the new Mi.

    Is your old phone dead? Like completely dead? If not I don't see a reason not to wait for what you actually want rather than opting for something just because you lost patience?

    When is the Evolve X supposed to release?

    My friends from China are saying that is most likely true coming from Sina Weibo..
    I guess we will find out very soon if it's true.. I don't plan on buying another BlackBerry, but I sure don't want to see them go away.
    This is the same people who wrote the article on TCL dropping BlackBerry.

    Supposed to.... July 2017 was the original date.

    Some sites now have mid April as the release date...

    I don't remember... just a retail site that had it listed. (Google Search - 1st page of listings) Might have mentioned it in the previous post back a few pages ago.

    Wouldn't say that it's high confidence in being correct... but then Optiemus isn't really saying much either.

    Not sure where July 2017 comes from since the launch of both the Evolve and Evolve X occurred in August 2018 with the release of the Evolve occurring in October 2018. The X was due end of December and has been continually delayed for reasons unknown to the point that most of us now consider the chances of a actual release is remote ....although 23rd April is now being touted as a possible date ....

    From Optiemus announcement back in May of 2017... they had two new BlackBerry devices that were going to be released in the next month or so.

    Coincidentally (not), about that time it was becoming clear the Aurora was a FLOP.

    I suspect they put things on hold, and let BBMo take the lead in rebuilding the brand... hoping that when they released their own BlackBerry designs, they would have an easier sell.

    I'm hoping beyond hope that the delay on this device has to do with some sort of agreement being made so that they make it for other markets as well as Asian markets.

    I seriously doubt that but if that were the case, the device specs are now almost year or more behind in the intended domestic market. BB licensed VKB is difficult to sell from the start. Delaying the hardware only makes the job more difficult to virtually impossible.

    BlackBerry SLAB don't sell...

    PT BB Merah Putih in Indonesia learned that two years ago... not sure they even exist anymore. (Caused Optiemus to put a hold on their two phones)

    BBMo learn it a year ago with the Motion.... they've had a 2nd SLAB on the back burner for over a year now, and it''s MIA.

    Optiemus should have known, but I think BlackBerry told them to release something or "else".

    But yeah a SD660 powered phone for $550 doesn't have a chance in India, where the OnePlus 6 would eat it for lunch.

    Only viable market for a BlackBerry Slab... is if Enterprise needs it, and they don't. BlackBerry's Android Secure... doesn't do anymore than what Apple or Samsung are already offing. And clearly there is no pricing advantage.

    I was only just thinking about this - their website has disappeared (including any mention of the Android handsets on https://id.blackberry.com), and the social media accounts haven't been updated since mid-2018. A pity if this is the case.

    What's strange is BlackBerry's website still sends links to that site....

    But Optiemus website was down for almost a month last Spring... I guess some companies have no issues shutting down websites while they get new ones ready?
