    I'd get an iphone with that BB-like keyboard case, then close my eyes and pretend it was my q10....

    I'd get a business account with my carrier for the sole purpose of getting a BlackBerry.

    If BlackBerry were to or stop making phones for regular consumers..
    What does that even mean? You mean like make a device that uses proprietary software with proprietary email and data servers with munitions grade encryption?

    Oh wait...


    This poll is stupid.

    I would seriously resort to hauling about my Windows 8 laptop...

    Hell I'd even consider using the PlayBook as a daily driver rather than switching to another platform... the only other platform I would have seriously considered would have been webOS however seen as how HP buggered that option for the rest of us (and LG is only entertaining webOS for TV OS duties) so if that were to have happened then I would have been utterly done for!

    I didn't know stock up was an option.

    I guess I'd buy 3 more Q10s and 3 Z30s.

    No reason to stress, they are only discussing a hypothetical question. Problem solved.

    Lol... Stock up isn't an option. People are just being jocular and refusing to even answer hypothetically! Thanks to everyone that indulged my curiosity and voted!

    I'd get whatever phone BBRY is making or keep using my Z30. The poll is flawed without the option to just get the non consumer BB. Doesn't mean they would refuse to sell to consumers just that their target market focus would be enterprise.

    In fact I would like someone to describe what a non consumer phone is and tell me why I couldn't still use it.
    Same here. I'm Enterprise now and would still be using a BB. If they were no longer available at all I would probably go back to a flip and use a Windows 7" tablet since my PB is with me most of the time anyway. For work I would prefer a total Windows ecosystem, phone, tablet, PC, if there was no BB, but in reality I wouldn't have much choice with a work phone as ours are issued and it would be whichever phone our vendors and companies we service for determine is best for security purposes.

    In regards to your question, any phone BB makes for Enterprise/business would of course be available to the general consumer, just as they originally were. Palm and BB both started with Enterprise/business targeted products but anyone could buy them. That's actually what actually propelled them into the consumer market, people desiring business and productivity features.

    Lenovo are about to release a high spec LTE phone that also features dual sim. Apparently it's being launched first in Asia but when it gets to the UK it could be worth a look
    That's if it gets to the UK! It's not been targeted to sell outside if Asia. Remember their core PC market.

    If they stop making phones for regular customers, and are still making phones, like more business orientated phones, than I would still get a BlackBerry, and I don't see that option on your poll.

    The features on the Moto x seems really intriguing... And the smaller size is perfect!
