    Can't come soon enough. This video is somewhat of confirmation that it's coming.

    May get me to hold off on getting the Dtek60 and keeping the passport for a few more months while we wait.

    Did they ever mention "when" Dtek60 was coming out and who would carry (Best Buy maybe)?

    Good news!! One day I'll get a Android-powered keyboard phone that's not the Priv.

    I think we all need to just relax, take a deep breath, the Mercury is coming. We've had enough confirmation, let's stop stressing about it.

    Still nothing specific said about either DTEK60 or Mercury.

    It's funny how for all of us, the earnings call and the interviews that followed had us sighing for relief while for others who don't actually follow what is said about BB closely it was "Doom and gloom! BB to stop making phones!"

    em.. that is what is happening - he was clear about that in the earning. Most people citing that video don't seem to have watched it - what he actually says is that a keyboard phone will appear if someone licenses it.

    *Le sigh* they will stop designing and manufacturing phones in-house, when I say what others are saying they mean there will be no more BB phones ever...

    In some ways I blame BlackBerry for not handling this whole thing all that well
    They left it too vague I believe.
    They should have been a lot more explanatory regarding the whole thing
    Chen even went as far saying he isn't sure whether he will bring out that phone that BlackBerry has been working on (Mercury)

    Sure there will be blackberry phones - in the same way there are Kodak TVs. Anyone who ponies up the cash and meets the minimum standards (whatever lowbar that is) can make a Blackberry phone. However is it going to be a blackberry phone in any meaningful sense that anyone here is interested? I doubt it.

    If a rebadged phone intended for Indonesian or Indian consumers (with bands that might not even work) is your bag - go for it.

    I kind of feel some strong oems like LePro will be interested for entering the US market. My 2 cents. For the pkb, they can always hire designers who will be left without jobs by BlackBerry.

    LePro with top specs will not sell that good in US or Europe even with a funny price tag. But BlackBerry name and competitive price can.

    Kind of interesting what the future will hold.

    People seem to be pretty happy with the DTEK50 (the few who bought one at least), but whatever, I guess I shouldn't argue with all of the psychics here on CB.

    He actually said it WAS coming. Which leads me to believe something is already in place for this market.

    At least "BlackBerry" isn't two letters away from "leprosy" .

    Then later said he wasn't sure plus he has that thing where he mixes up future,present and past tense.

    Anyway i generally only pay attention to statements he makes when surrounded by lawyers and when he can be sued and the only thing he said there 'cease all activity' on their last keyboard phone.

    If he has already paid for any mercury inventory (doubtful given the statements he made) then we might see them pushed out to die in the cold (aka the blackberry store).

    Actually I believe the company is called LeEco and the phone is called Le Pro. But you can obviously see how the person in charge of naming the phone wasn't entirely too creative.

    OTOH, seeing that BB isn't being too creative with their naming system, maybe they would work well together! :P

    I think TCL can produce a great phone too. If they just open a design house in Waterloo and hire the ex BlackBerry design team. Not that much of a deal.

    Second thought, not all the members of the design team please . Just the passport, Z30 and classic guys.

    So even if the Mercury is coming, the PRIV is actually the last device with a PKB designed by BlackBerry

    In other words, this makes the PRIV even more special as the first BlackBerry running ANDROID and the last BlackBerry designed phone *hugs my PRIV*
