    I just watched the Carphone warehouse review, and I noticed that the virtual keyboard is the BlackBerry10 version! This is great!

    Word suggestions may be something you have to turn on after the fact. My BlackBerry Classic out of the box didn't have word suggestions and I had to enable that feature in settings

    It's officially confirmed by BlackBerry.

    Carphone warehouse has a Hands On Video about the BB Priv and it's amazing. See here below the link.

    You don't have the phone, so you don't know what it has.

    I know for sure that it doesn't have an expandable antenna. Or a popcorn maker. Or a coffee maker.

    Hope that will be added. It's one of my favorite things on my Z30.

    I'm sending my screen lifted Passport in for RMA and selling it as soon as I receive it.

    BlackBerry Priv will be my next phone.

    That looks like my Windows Phone 8.1 keyboard--which is to say, adequate at absolute best.

    I had forgotten how much better keyboards can be, until my wife got a new Galaxy S4 last week to replace her S2. Even Samsung's own keyboard is much more useful than what I see on the screen.

    Here's to hoping that, given this is a full-on Android piece, I can install SwiftKey and just be done with it--should I need a screen keyboard, SwiftKey is one of the best.

    But REALLY here's to hoping that I can just used the physical kb, period. That it can be used as a trackpad, I like A LOT.
