    That would be awesome if it released in June! Who needs Verizon with their roll out of 10.3 whatever it will be at that time when I can just buy a new device with the current O/S already pre-installed?

    Very cool. I don't really care for specs. I care for screen quality size. And I care for battery MaH but apart from that. Not really So the slider will definitely be a welcome upgrade to me From my beloved Z30. Besides apart from my Xperia X1 running Windows mobile 6.1 I've never owned a qwerty phone So it will be great to try a BlackBerry slider being the all touch guy that I am.

    I'm excited about this phone. I love the idea of a SG6 Edge running BB10, but I'm even more thrilled if the it has a physical keyboard available. Would have liked to see BlackBerry implement the slider patent we recently saw, but since I've never used such a thing, I'm not sure it's superior.

    Hate to break it but pretty sure it's going to be made of recycled parts guys.. My super advanced predictions suggests it has the Z10's screen and the Classic's keyboard and will run BB10.2.1

    Non-removable battery = FAIL

    Maybe it would need to have a landscape keyboard for me to find it usable.

    BS! With modern technology (and sufficient capacity) removable batteries are just not necessary anymore.
    I don't miss a removable battery in my PP at all...

    BS back. A non-removable battery may be enough for you but not for me. Ask my S5.

    Why not get those external portable?
    Over here, we got the 10400maH xiaomi portable charger at less than 25$. Can charge my phone 3 times. It's really great, charges at 2A - very fast. Beats my wall charger of 1.3/1.5A. And it can also handle different devices. Why get a removable battery that's device specific?

    Really? I've used both portrait and landscape sliders and much preferred portrait. For me it's just way more comfortable to type while holding the phone in portrait mode. I usually read messages that way, so it's a bit awkward to turn the phone before sliding out the keyboard to reply.

    Because external power packs are a horrible kludge, so out of the question. And if I wanted, I could use a BlackBerry Battery Charger as one.

    It is a question of whether the keys are too small. I know the Nokia E's were unusable for me, but I don't know about a 5" 16:9 BlackBerry.

    You won't. Just watch some videos of the Samsung Galaxy s6 edge. It's not very easy to open things

    Maybe not for some people, but for me, I often times hold my phone with my hands resting on the sides, I actually kind of lean into the phone by the sides, if the sides were part of the screen, I would have to change how I use my phone. But I know for most people it might not be an issue.

    The problem with the removable battery is that it needs a lot of space and makes it heavier

    Oh for sure, the 9810 keys were a little small. I loved the phone and could type like mad on it but bigger would have been better. And my Curve was even smaller. Width-wise I'm thinking this phone and its keyboard should be close to the size of the Q10 and I love typing on that. Plenty big enough for me anyway, and I've got decent sized hands.

    No problem. The S5 is neither bulky nor heavy for example.

    There should be at least 2 slider models.

    How many slider variants would it take to make the all-touch crowd's head collectively explode?

    But yes, as the biggest slider-lover you'll ever fine, even I think one slider is enough.

    It is not enough. It might be fine for traditional BlackBerry customers, but not for people who would like things like Psion, Prada, N900, and Communicator.
