    The Classic was the last blackberry ever.
    I'm going to disagree with this, but I'm not a purist so there's that.

    I think people may be looking a little too far into this. Yes, he looked pretty stupid not knowing how to demo anything on the phone, but who really cares? Some tech sites will have a few laughs, but everyone already knows how Android works - no one needs him to do a runthrough. When it comes to their marketing material, they'll put together some nice videos of all of the features that make it different.

    I'm kind of thinking that he was a little nervous because there were things that he's not supposed to show until it gets released. We saw in the leaks, that it will have a hub, so why wouldn't he say anything about that? With almost everything being leaked beforehand, maybe they still want to, officialy, keep some of the features away from the press.

    I like it but not in black. This device will now only need an agressive advert. For the first time I am confident it will sell. I am also almost certain that the two children toys, namely Samsung and iPhone with the jellybean and kitkat, will start their downfall against Priv. Blackberry has missed its opportunity to build on Z30 which an awesome device to restart with. It should not do the same with Priv. Blackberry, be confident and invade the market agressively with Priv.

    Wow, absolutely brutal demo. Hope they have someone else show the phone until he learns how to use it. Yes, you can see he was trying BB10 swipes on it. Glad he seems to be used to a BB10 device at least.
    There does seem to be interest in this device, though - so who knows, they may sell a few.
    I may break down and get one. With nowhere else to go from my Z30, this may be the softest transition I will be able to make into Android. Hope the BlackBerry Productivity Suite is well done.

    She's always been at BlackBerry events so I really hope Chen has gotten over that at this point.

    He's just a CEO that plays a negligible (if any) role in the making of the products made by the employees of the company he happens to be running.

    I think Chen is awesome but I have no idea how he let that video air and not do another take!?! I wasn't sold on the phone before but I was interested and that video killed it all. The fact he didn't know how to work the device smoothly almost as if he didn't have anything to do with this phone.. and he had to mention Google first... also if I was in his position once it lagged like at the beginning automatic redo. Start rolling camera again ahaha I just can't believe that. Nothing against Chen though.

    That along with BBM video chat are questions to ponder. Would suck if someone went to the Priv and found they could no longer BBM video chat with BB10 ppl.

    Not sure why he jumped the gun and decided to show it to a news network? If he wasn't prepared to show the full device why bring it in the first place!!! He made himself look like a fool...not that he should care but investors do care! He screwed up with classic launch and I have a feeling he'll screw up this opportunity too!

    I liked chen but now he's just pissing me off with every mistake. If he cant handle the media then just stay away!

    Don't Knock him, the fact he was trying to swipe, instead of pecking away, shows he is used to BB10 OS. that brought a smile to my face. I'm sure there are a lot of people who know how to use Android OS, so i don't think that little lapse will discourage people from trying the new Priv. It's obvious that the Priv has a lot of appeal, judging from the look on her face when he handed it to her.

    Yes so why is showing off the phone then? Leave it to the marketing team.

    It was a botched interview and once again he's taking a nice device like Priv the same path as Classic and Passport. Both were horribly marketed and launched.

    I remember when the HP TouchPad was being released, they were interviewing John Rubinstein on Engadget and he had no clue what the specs on the TouchPad were. He also had no idea of the processor was a dual core or not. This was years ago. Eh, Chen has other things to worry about. I'm just glad this phone is coming out soon.

    600 bucks little man, but that Priv in my hand!
