    Good point, just added a bit on that at the bottom. It weighs in really well balanced into the hands. And if you mean literally the weight it is about ½lbs, so the larger display and metal build compared to the Priv, unsurprisingly comes at an increased weight.
    I think BB ltd had quite some genius R&D going on to make the Priv feel so compact despite housing a hidden PKB.

    If the Pro 1 sells decently, maybe the company would make a followup Pro 2 that's smaller, thinner and lighter?

    Then that would have my interest, because I feel like the thumbs have to do quite a bit of moving around with this one.

    I too hope that this will be a success, and enough so to revive the real keyboards, so we can have lesser versions too.

    I really miss a modern PHONE not phablet. But despite the Pro1 being too big for one handed operation, I have no issues reaching the full keyboard.

    I would not be surprised in seeing myself using the keyboard on a desk for longer messages, and though my fingers are too fat for ten fingers to fit in, using two-three fingers on each hand would certainly be an option I would experiment with.
    It is about the keyboard area of a Priv to each hand.

    I would love a PRIV2. I used the PRIV from the day it dropped until the KEYone was released and had no problem with typing on the PKB. I couldn't use the PRO1 as the landscape keyboard is something I don't think I could get used to.

    I like the more compact style the KEY series brings. Just traded my slate KEY2 LE for the champagne and loving the classy look.

    The Pro1 honestly has my interest at this point more than a hypothetical Priv 2. I'm kind of displeased with Blackberry's lack of support for the Priv in terms of getting things like a Nougat update. BlackBerry also backed down on the whole monthly security updates thing since the Priv which in my opinion is kind of ****ty when they continue to put security at the forefront of their marketing. The KeyOne and Key2 do not interest me because I prefer sliders and honestly now that the Pro1 is coming up with a much more full featured keyboard, with things like a number row and a tab button and actual number keys (No disrespect to Blackberry's keyboard layout but I personally prefer something more full featured.) BlackBerry is going to have to do a lot to win me back.

    I was hoping that BlackBerry, with it's commitment to monthly updates and it's willingness to experiment with strange form factors like a sliding portrait keyboard would have been a breath of fresh air to the stagnant Android market but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case.

    At this point my list of reasons to recommend a Blackberry device are as follows:

    1. Physical Keyboard FTW.
    2. Blackberry Hub is legit really nice.

    The Pro1 has me covered for reason 1 and BlackBerry Hub is available as a 99 cent monthly subscription service now.

    I've had trouble signing in the Fxtec forums, so I figured I'll ask you. Does it have band 66? I've seen it listed and not listed at various places.
