    imagine that the top blackberry forum in the planet still hasn't done a review on a blackberry or given us a glimpse into what this phone might or might not be instead there's people doing unboxing and reviews who probably didnt even know bb was still in business. we need someone who uses bb10 almost exclusively to give us an in depth review
    I'd wait until tomorrow.

    Or maybe part of the whole plan where BlackBerry isn't doing official launches.

    This is all too similar to the Baka leak. Post video to YouTube, get people talking, then take it down shortly after.

    Probably because BlackBerry wants you to use BBM.

    Blackberry is now comited cross platform, so I don't think so

    Coming from a Q10, size is my only concern. I'm not into large slabs. But I'm leaning towards buying in hope it succeeds and other smaller variants are created. However, one quick question to Android users:

    I've only used BB10. Is Android intuitive, easy to learn on the go?? (I'm not a smartphone guru)

    Thank you in advance.
    I totally empathise with this. I have pre-ordered the Priv and also the flip case. Trust me, the case suggests this phone is going to be surprisingly compact. It just doesn't give off that big slab feel. BB's sizing of this thing seems totally spot on.

    He didn't show much of Hub and I understood why because in next minute he said back cover is grippy like iphone6. He just had no previous experience about Hub or Z30 glass weave back cover.

    Has anyone heard if Android Pay will work with the device since it doesn't have a finger print scanner? That's actually a feature I use a lot on my Samsung.
    Fingerprint isn't required just that you have a lockscreen in place.

    I'm surprised that blackberry didn't implement a finger print scanner. It's such a time saver especially now that Samsung has made theirs simple by just placing your finger on it. Oh well guess you can't have it all. Lol

    Yeah. If they can integrate it into the keyboard that'd be great. Maybe the space bar could be made big enough to work. Or a trackpad!

    I'm still not seeing the keyboard light up. Is this just me?

    My passport keys only light up when it's dark or I cover the sensor if it's bright out

    The lack of a trackpad and the awkward way Android requires touch-input is really making this thing less and less attractive as I see it in use..

    Oh that capacitive PKB swipe screams for a "full swipe for fullscreen app switch"-gesture (like on webos see 9.30min) and not only swiping through home screens. Perhaps a 3rd party taskswitcher is able to catch full swipes from the pkb.

    I meant to say toolbelt. Touching the screen is clunky and inefficient. Was hoping you could do a lot of navigation from the keyboard, and maybe you can, need to see a full review.

    when I had the Classic, I only ever used the trackpad for clicking small links and editing documents. All of which I can do on the Touch Keyboard.

    They need a name for that.

    SlideBoard or something dumb.

    Nobody is allowed to show the actual phone working till the release. Hence why the original video got taken off.

    That's because CB is for old berries. Priv is an android phone that isn't on CB priority.

    Classic's toolbelt was nice but suboptimal. Most apps were not designed for it so the trackpad behaviour was sporadic.

    I imagine they can't do a full review until November 6th.

    Everything is a secret with BlackBerry makes you wonder if they are actually in the business of actually selling phones. I would pimping this thing like like a pimp with 2 pinkie rings

    Why speak of it in the past tense? I use it constantly, only apps I have to touch the screen to use are Android apps. Some actually support the trackpad in odd ways. I can navigate the phone that much faster with physical buttons.
