    I think the Motion tanked pretty badly. I honestly don't think there will be a successor to the Motion.
    Think you are right on both counts. Came in silent and went out the same way.

    I love the phone, but I really miss the PKB, so I'll be getting a KEY3 as soon as it's out
    Enjoying mine as well but many aspects of BBMo/TCL's made me realize they ain't trying as hard as they should be and much of BB's past (the negatives) still linger. For that reason the Motion will be our last for the foreseeable future.

    Sky's the limit if you don't need a PKB.

    As long as it has GREAT battery, SD card, decent camera, and BB keyboard, I would look at it. Don't need PKB.

    We know he meant BBmo...
    My waters tell me to expect a Motion 2, no evidence, just a feeling!!
    Probably, wishful thinking. I love the Motion and would get a revamped one.
    Improved camera, dual speakers, IP68, more creative uses for the Home button that scrolled on one update in a jerky way, and then went back to notification shade opening, but same screen and same big battery. I'd keep the things that make it 'Blackberry': e.g keep the convenience key (unlike the Evolve). And make the design as individual as it is now.

    In sum, a Motion 2 that builds on all that is good with the current Motion.
    I agree with this post , and I will buy a new one just for a better camera.

    Already got... Galaxy S7 Edge & Huawei P20 Pro. Edge is my back up while other two are on separate lines.

    I too prefer the van, but also the security of a Blackberry. I have had the Z10,Z30 and now the Motion. If there is no new model coming, I will use this phone until the apps stop working, then figure out something.
    I agree. I went from 9530 > z10 > z30 > Motion -- and I have zero regrets. The Motion is the king here and it would take a lot for me to switch from it. I had no budget and I was comparing specs of all Android phones putting them under the microscope .. if I had cared about the night camera then I might have bought something else. But that's really the only thing.

    You can flick type on the key1 and 2 keyboards.

    The Motion is in many ways my favourite BBMO phone. I love the look and feel in my hands and the screen is large and also feels good to the touch.
    The battery life is the best of all the BBMO s.
    It could have a better camera, but it does everything I need well enough. The Blackberry VKB is excellent for a slab.
    That said, I really do prefer the PKB. I can almost touch type on it now, while I find myself making so many errors on the Motion in comparison.

    Contact TCL and inquire about a Motion 2 device. I would be fine with a 2 year release time frame. Usually most people upgrade every 2-3 years anyways. And an all touch BlackBerry Motion is a must for the majority that prefer all touch with a BBRY touch and feel.

    While that certainly holds true for the general Android user, it doesn't seem to with the traditional BlackBerry user - as sales of the Aurora, Motion, and Evolve would seem to indicate.

    I think a good all touch around the same time as the PRIV might have done alright. Pretty hard to sell an all touch without a good camera.

    Does anyone have any inside information as to whether BlackBerry intends to come out with anymore all touch screen devices that aren't just for sale in India?
    My view the probably will waiting 5G network fix up the antenna's for new phone.
    If now launch new 4G phone will be out dated.
    In near future all phones will operation 5G network.

    Supposedly coming out under the Alcatel brand as a 7 model . Kind of a flagship for TCL . Supposedly in Europe first.

    I hope they do. My son is still on his priv (with the stupid red line). He wants another slab phone. A priv2 or a Motion2.

    I would have paid to fixed that screen a long time ago after BB could not figure out their own order page to fix for free

    I was surprised to hear him say he doesn't want a keyboard.. He used to love them. He's still about BB, though. Now it's slab BB
