    Guys, I just found out that the Slider Screen is made by the same manufacturer like the S6 edge screen. Look at this replacement part and the logos on it:

    I don't understand how some people say just another Android! Well, this is completely different kind of Android phone. It calls BlackBerry Android. I'm sure it is more secure than any other Android brands. This is one size fits all. You've both virtual screen keyboard and physical keyboard. You don't have to carry two phones anymore. Your options now when you pull out the phone from your pocket, do I need to reply to people with physical keyboard or just virtual keyboard? Put your second phone at home! No need two phones anymore with this Super Slider! BlackBerry, your priority job is to release it now, don't wait (you've made so much mistakes in the past for waiting too long) and make sure you do the pumping commercial and price it right.

    Yes, it looks the same, so Samsung must be the one who design the Slider for BlackBerry. I heard the rumor long time ago that Samsung will design the phone for BlackBerry. The rumor must be credible about Samsung design the Slider phone.

    Can you identify the logo? Which company is it from?

    Your confidence is inspiring, my friend. As the old saying goes: "from your lips to God's ear." Unfortunately, there is very little support for your statements yet. "I'm sure it is more secure..." is a lovely sentiment - but not fact based. "You don't have to carry two phones anymore..." is true only if the only reason to carry a second phone is the need for a physical keyboard - unfortunately, not typically the driver for a second phone. "...pumping commercial[s] and price it right" is kind of a novel idea, and one Blackberry has been very reluctant to try - I'm not sure this is about to change. Bottom line: only time will tell. Let's hope it's not too much time!

    How's the battery life?
    Speaking of battery (electrical kind not the physical battering kind which the device will probably take at the hands of reviewers) - does this leaky device have WIRELESS/QI charging or is that going to be a carrier exclusive like Verizon's Z30?

    I think now more than ever we'll need the BB logo on the front so as not to confuse it with another Android device when the PKB is stowed.

    So far we have picture confirmation of the following specs:
    - Physical keyboard
    - Screen (*new*)

    I'm hoping it has a battery and SIM card slot as well (*fingers crossed*)...

    Security and PKB. Nobody, let alone the Android folks, gives **** about these, in the consumer world and to some extent enterprise too. If it is not so, BBRY would have been in better shape now.

    And your last sentence, when was the last time BBRY did those right?

    I think, like you say, enterprise believes in security (to a varying degree depending on the industry). However, consumers don't. The thing is, though, that the people who work for enterprises are consumers (at least in the evening and on their breaks).

    With the days of COBO devices over, enterprises are looking for a way to secure their data on consumer devices. In comes a BlackBerry android device that can secure the whitelisted apps on a work partition, while the employee is free to recklessly install malware on their personal partition.

    The Slider will not just be another Android phone. It's a Blackberry Secured Android Phone. Don't put your hope down yet people, if it can combine the good things of both Android and Blackberry it'll sell better than BB10 for sure!

    BlackBerry hasn't released any information about the slider, except for showing a prototype unit for a few seconds back in March, and saying that it will be available by the end of the year. That's it.
