    Reading this it makes me extremely happy and makes perfect sense which means this octa core rumor phone we have been hearing and now with the qualcomm octa core 815 chip set that would be amazing

    5.2 inches 1080p display
    4GB ram
    Octa core 2.0 to 2.5 ghz
    16/32/64 GB options
    3100 mAh battery
    USB 3.0
    10.3 with the ability to install games on the SD card (would be a game changer big time)
    16mp camera minimum

    What do you guys think of the 4 categories as well

    Affordable - Think phones like the newly-announcedBlackBerry Z3. The goal here is to get the BlackBerry experience into the hands of as many people at as low a price point as possible.

    Classic - With a physical keyboard and the "tool belt" making its return, this is where the new Q20 fits in. This is the iconic BlackBerry experience that so many longtime BlackBerry users still love. It may not be a huge growth opportunity, but this is giving those loyal BlackBerry users what they want. Note, don't take the re-introduction of the toolbelt on the Q20 to mean they won't make another Q10-like device without it.

    High-End - During BlackBerry's press conference John Chen noted that BlackBerry is also working on some new, high-end smartphones that will be sought after not only by the BlackBerry core, but likely by the larger smartphone consumer base as well. While it was still too early for Francois to get into any details with us, judging by the grin on his face and sparkle in his eye as he talked about this, I can't help but believe BlackBerry has some really cool stuff coming our way. Great news for all us hardcore enthusiasts!

    Prestige - Think expensive, like the Porsche Design BlackBerry P'9982. These are low volume, high-cost devices that help keep BlackBerry an aspirational brand.

    I'm hoping that at the absolute minimum a 5" 8974 phone is announced sometime soon. Also, Snapdragon 61x is the mid-range chip. High end should be 810/815.

    On a side note, all this hubbub about octa-core phones is entirely unnecessary if ARMv(the next one) could just implement better power management/clock scaling. You do know only up to four cores at a time are in use (barring extreme circumstances), right?

    Where my Z10 fits? I see it is falling out from high-end.

    It's not a phone, it's a ?

    They are setting themselves up to hit each market in a good fashion.

    The move with Foxconn has allowed this to be possible. Cheaper costs and more flexibility.

    Looking forward to the next high end device to replace my Z10

    These categories are the same as

    Low end level - affordable
    Mid end level - classic
    And you got the high end level
    The Prestige end level is just overkill IMO

    If the classic is "mid end", I hope that doesn't apply for the battery department

    I think that's wrong, it's more like

    Affordable (Z3 full touch option, QX QWERTY option to come)

    Classic ( Q10, Q20 to come, basically high end QWERTY phones, not mid level)

    High End (Z30, ZXX to come, basically high end Full touch phones)

    Prestige (Porsche Design)
