    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If BB makes it look "normal" than everyone complains that its just another black slab, and if they differentiate it somehow with a different design everyone complains that it doesn't look "right". So . . .

    interesting pic .... definitely a 2 hander but not actually massive.

    but keyboard use on Torch, Bold and Q10 is 2 handed as well

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. LOL. In my eyes that thing is hideous, and I am a huge BlackBerry fan. If they really do sell a phone looking like that they will put the final nail in the BlackBerry coffin. Just my opinion. If someone saw someone else using a phone like that I could only imagine their response. And then once they find out it is a BlackBerry then all hell will break loose. I really hope this is just a concept like in car shows where the concept is so ridiculous it never makes it into production. I'm not someone who really cares what other people think of the phones I use, but again, this will really make BlackBerry look like a silly company. I really hope they don't do this.

    Just to add to my above post. Does BlackBerry really have the money to make any mistakes at all? They should be focused on making devices that at least look good.

    But I can't imagine how it will feel comfortable to use. The keys are aligned so close to the edge that your thumbs will have to reach quite far if you hold it where you would naturally hold your Q or 9900 now.

    Posted from my awesome Q10 via CB10.
    Those that have used it have said it's very easy to use, it's more for the phablet range than comparing with the size of a Q or 9900, I think it's one of those things where the perception of it is different from the reality so when you try it everything will click into place, but just looking at it doesn't seem to make sense..

    im in the ugly crowd for this one. Not near as sexy as a 9900
    I don't think any phone to date has been.

    Anyhow, hopefully they pretty it up a bit for launch.

    MAN I hate the look of that device. . . so glad that's not targeted at consumers, but probably not going to help the image at all. Come on Q20!

    "ugly square brick that won't fit in my pocket" to paraphrase another poster, and likely so for the average consumer. But this looks perfect for lab coat pockets, suit jacket pockets, and the like. I don't think its meant for the Angry Crushed Flappy Twitter crowd.

    When you are trying to win people over again you design something to get their attentjion in a POSITIVE way, if this is the final product, they have failed big time. Heck, even cars are being designed with lots of curves and rounded edges...I don't believe that is the final product and I will quietly wait till it is out for my final verdict.

    This is not their only device! If it's not for you then just accept it and move on...

    I don't know how else to put it, people who have actually held the device and used it as opposed to just seeing pictures, even a friend of mine who looks at all phones objectively has said this will be his next BlackBerry (this is someone who has used a Z30 and Q10) (and has a Nexus and iPhone) ..

    Game Boy Color? I told you NOT to play dress up! Now start up that Legend of Zelda

    But seriously? Now that I've seen it actually in someone's hands, I can see that it's not THAT big. In fact, it looks pretty cool in that pic. Like I said: Game Boy. It really reminds me of Game Boy

    First of all, I 've always used a physical keyboard Device, and if this is what we are to expect of the new keyboard phone it is MY choice that I will not get it because it looks terrible if this is how it will look. I am FULLY aware that other devices are coming out as well...but as you may or may not know, this IS a forum to express ones opinions and I am simply stating MY opinion. no need to get all bent outta shape bud......

    I was just looking online at this and thought maybe this is BB answer to the Playbook.

    Maby it's a Phablet, Chen says a Phablet may be the next new device.

    One thing is for certain.

    People are talking about this device. Its probably because it is very different.

    http://www.valuewalk.com/2014/06/bla...essive-design/

    http://mobilesyrup.com/2014/06/02/bl...ign-and-specs/

    https://uk.news.yahoo.com/blackberry...123804861.html

    They all say its oddly shaped.

    But thats not the point. The point is that people are talking about it.

    I think this device is going to make a difference.

    I understand what you're saying.

    But people still talk about the Pacer. Look where that is.

    To add....I had a Pacer as a curiosity car in 89. Loved it.

    A rather unpopular car in its day. Which I happened to love and people still talk about. You may not know it, but in 2014 it has over 10 pages in Google hits.

    And it made it to Wayne's World.
