    This phone has premium camera, enormous battery, very impressive keyboard, and a processor that's perfectly fine for communication oriented professionals like most of us.

    Additionally, the $549 price point offers a lower alternative to other Androids or the iPhones. You simply cannot complain about price AND also want a higher cpu.

    This phone IS exciting. The media IS responding positively to BlackBerry for the first time in many years.

    So please, kill the negativity and just give it a chance.

    I for one feel very hopeful and hope one pops up on eBay soon so I can bid 4 figures on it ;-)

    Thank you CB for doing such a great job and a toast to TCL for marketing with much better efficiency then we've seen in recent years.

    Thank you.

    Not to mention, all media I've seen is complimenting the build quality, design, and feel of the device.

    What the hell you talking about? IT'S OVERPRICED for its specs, nobody asked for better specs for lower price.

    DTEK60 has better specs and is cheaper. Priv is half the price and same performance.

    They priced their own product out of the market they intended.

    DTEK60 is a TCL rebuild basic Android experience with BlackBerry software. KeyOne has flagship BlackBerry keyboard, metal build, best BlackBerry camera, and enormous battery. You're clueless.

    I agree that we all need to calm down. The launch was disappointing in the way it was so dull with nothing exciting in the way it was presented. So indeed that was maddening, but folks take a look at the hands on reviews. They are pretty darned good. Why sabotage this phone with negativity because the launch was poorly done?

    You are wrong. Priv is 499 right now. You are saying the same all over the forum, you should check your facts.

    Exactly. This will be, as confirmed a GSM/CDMA fully unlocked device in the US. The price point isn't bad at all. $50 more than I hoped. Be realistic.

    Does that mean it will make it to Verizon? Thought I heard earlier that the channels were not there for Verizon.

    THANK YOU!!!!!! I was very excited this morning after the presentation. The phone looks fantastic!!! Then I came on this site and the horror of the name, price, release date, specs, camera, speakers, presentation, everything, it all sucks!..... wow, never mind. I'll reverse my steps before walking into this abyss called Crackberry.

    These days, anything which isn't negative or bashing is a pretty positive sign. And I read a couple of "positive" articles like that already.

    Yea engadget even had a 'we still have to decide, but it looks good' line... which, from engadget, is pretty much saying 'take my money' for a blackberry device

    Does Gizmodo not cover phones anymore? I went over there looking for the usual "Blackberry is awful and everything you love is made of ****" article but didn't find *anything* about phones.

    Did they just get nailed for reviewing one too many stolen iPhones?

    Gizmodo merged with i09 and is now more general tech newsish and not phones and gadget based anymore.

    Yes indeed, by all rights BB phone should have died after Passport! BB is still here with a phone that looks like a BB, has the amazing BB touch PKB, superior battery, any one complaining is, well, just a complainer! Some are nit picking just pure silly aspects of the presentation, of Kevin, of anything that can think of. As long as this phone, WORKS, (keeping in mind Priv, ugh!) it is going to be fantastic, even if it's running Android. PS: CB-Kevin, you did a fine job! Loved it all.

    No it isn't. You're over reacting. You think the Samsung S8 is going to be anywhere near $550 USD? You just want a high end phone but hate spending a fair price.

    Thank you for fact checking the over reactors. I'd additionally point out that this is a discounted price because KEYone is coming.

    Yes, I just watch through 7 or so of them, they all genuinely liked it for what it is. I was absolutely stunned there were no jabs or smartass remarks towards BB.
