    That the new "Mercury" or whatever they call it, comes out with the same internals as the DTEK 60 but with the PKB?

    I would buy this for sure....!!

    Because it's not pegged to be a higher-end device.

    Bla1ze is it coming? I am limited on cash right now, so I am thinking about buying a passport SE but if mercury is coming I can postpone it.

    Was hoping they might surprise us.
    I really do like a PKB., but dont seem to use it as much on my Priv, as it seems to be hiding out of the way.

    So torn right now.....

    What are the chances of it even coming out? (I m talking a decent worldwide release with decent specs like the 625)

    Just hope it'll have better specs than the DTEK50. Doubt the masses will buy a low-end device just because it has a pkb.

    Decent worldwide release? About as likely as a bright idea on how to save BlackBerry coming from CB forums.

    Decent is a relative term -

    Samsung level decent - $100 million spent per market, celebrity tie-ins, exploding batteries

    Apple level decent - launches on 600 carriers worldwide on same day, adverting leads to quenes around block

    Blackberry level decent - Chen agrees to pay $100 for an intern to hand out flyers in Waterloo but only for two hours - and he's not paying for colour flyers like money grows on trees.

    Probably DTEK50 specs, not DTEK60. But will be more expensive than DTEK50.

    Thats only when a partner decides that its a good idea to buy the Mercury design from Blackberry besides buying the software and brandname. I think chances are very small...

    By decent I mainly meant people will be able to buy it all parts of the world where BlackBerry sells phones

    If it gets released, I think it will be available where Priv was available plus the partner's hometown

    Then you're out of luck. Any licenced device will be available in the licensees region - only.

    Chen says he "probably won't" distribute any licenced phone more widely. I think you should interpret the "probably won't" in the same way as parents use the term with their kids... it means "never".

    It's the perfect reason on why there will never be another physical keyboard BlackBerry device. If BlackBerry is outsourcing their hardware, which is fact, no one is going to put any R&D into a device that contains a physical keyboard, that no one is going to purchase. This is why the DTEK series is based on what's already being manufactured. It doesn't make and financial sense or cents

    Your prophecy is contradicting the official BlackBerry position.

    Martin Beard, BlackBerry COO:

    "Our customers also help us decide what type of keyboard we make for them. And what they ask for is choice in both a virtual and physical keyboard."

    "This means well continue to make our iconic BlackBerry keyboard... There is solid demand for physical keyboards and as long as thats the case, well continue to make them."
