    LoL.

    Even a heavy-ish plastic construction, but properly put together, should be good (ahem, unlike some Passports' screens).

    The fun factor wears off. Especially when things are as 'boring' as they've been lately lol. Also, pretty sick of the word 'Hypervisor' too. Just saying.
    How many are still going to be in denial? You gonna have to make more clear than that.

    Are you suggesting that what we see is full blown android running on a VM within BB10? Or are you saying your tired of other people saying that?

    I still don't understand why it's so far fetched to believe BlackBerry could license some of its patents, which are VERY valuable, to Google in exchange for Google play access. It seems like a win win for everyone involved.

    Pretty sure that Samsung and most of the rest of the OHA would NOT see it as a win win.....

    What patents that BlackBerry owns does Google want?

    Most all that has been disscussed about this is possible from a technology only standpoint, and would be great from BlackBerry's point of view. But you have to step outside and look at it from Google, Samsung, HTC...all of the OHAs point of view. If anything Google is about to get tougher on access to GPS ...

    don't really care how it's constructed if all it's going to run is bahdroid. that's my new moniker for this slider's (tentative) OS.

    Seriously they need to have a more premium construction, not Leap's construction.

    Just depends on what retail price point BlackBerry wants to hit and what margins they want. Whatever builder they are working with will then offer them choices. But with a 3rd Party in the mix and volumes so low... you aren't going to get a Galaxy S6 level device at the price the S6 will be at in three months. You will have to compromise... I think I'd rather have a good CPU/GPU than a premium body. A case will cover that.

    I want dual OS. Or at least the option of having BlackBerry 10 or Android.

    BTW if it's unclear, bla1ze's post means the slider will NOT have a hypervisor dual boot whatever. Thus him being sick of it being mentioned.

    Looks like it's most probably a full android (with BlackBerry apps and maybe some skinning)

    And maybe an independent bb10 version.

    Even if it was a dual boot, stop saying hypervisor.

    I've customarily used the oem pouches. If I get the slider that's what i'd use, just common sense really given the unique shape.
