    What will the next touch phone be like? 4.5" screen, octo-core, carbon back? What would change with the Z10 replacement? Rumours are 2015? What new technology is evolving that may make it to the new phone?

    The rumoured O series, with a model codenamed Ontario, is supposed to have a 5.2" 1080x1920 display.

    There is a phone in the works, code named 'Ontario ' that's rumored to be an 8 core 64 bit phone. Rumored to be released in September 2014.

    Z10... next Ontario!

    Thanks, very interesting. Hopefully there will be a "mini" version of the O also, don't
    really care for a phone quite that large. Around a 4" screen is more than enough for me.

    Update as of some new rumours today. Supposedly the Ontario is canceled.

    Sounds like bad news? Might be the opposite.
    I'm hoping this substantiates the other recent rumour that a BB octacore superphone is coming this year instead of 2015.

    There's an enigmatic B series that has yet to be identified, so fingers crossed that's it!

    They are really mostly working on Keyboard devices from what I hear.

    I can only hope you're right, at least in terms of the new superphone coming sooner rather than later. What can I say, I am one of the early adopters of the Z10 and it has treated me so well I am left wanting more.

    Outside of it being octacore, have you heard any other rumoured specs of this potential release?

    Please don't let Ontario be cancelled. I prefer touchscreen phones. Plus the vkb of bb10 rocks

    I still think we are going to get 4 phones, so I would not worry about it if you are a touchscreen fan or physical keyboard fan. We already know 1 out of the 4 phones, with the Z3 (Jakarta) being the first one up for release. So then that leaves 3 for release: superphone, replacement for the Q10, and the replacement for the Z30.

    I think the Z10 is no longer in the product line as far as having a direct replacement. Remember the Z10 was the first bb10 phone planned under the old guard (before Thorsten Heins).

    Yep. Maybe they planned the Ontario as the mid end replacement for the Z30, cancelled it, then pushed to fast track the development of that superphone.. haha am I making any sense?

    No. There will be no octocore phone this year. Anyone who thinks there will be is trippin'.

    Even 2015 is a distant maybe. We are likely to see a continuation of dual core devices this year, with the possibility of a quad core flagship. Anything more is a pipedream made up by sites who just want to get some attention.

    RE: After Z10 and Z30 and Z3...just wondering

    Perhaps only "Z" or "3"... don't know but if BlackBerry keeps downgrading their devices, it will end up like that...
