    So with TCL out of the picture. Maybe Chen could do us a favor by allowing us to crowdfund a new device . I mean doesn't have to be a huge departure from devices of the past. They already have the software suite they can push along with android 10. Maybe make it a android one device so updates are on Google's end. Only go ahead with the project if goals are met. No overstock. And us blackberry fans can have a newly updated device. Ask what we want. Listen to those things. Give us a price and see how it goes from there.

    Pretty sure if it cost more than $100 Chen wouldn't go for it.....

    BlackBerry will license their IP but you need to bring a checkbook with ten figures and a business plan that makes sense. Good luck finding either of those on Kickstarter!

    Very true. I found acceptance back in 2013, which has enabled me to enjoy more than six wonderful years with my BB10 phones.

    If you'd like a pkb device order a Unihertz Titan and install Blackberry apps using Cobalts Download Manager... If you want a VKB Android one experience get a Pixel or a Nokia and install Android apps again using the same method... :-)

    hahahaha .. just for clarification. i haven't owned a blackberry since the priv. neither of the TCL offerings made their way into my collection. Just seeing as companies like unihertz can make a new device (terrible as it may be) with an all new design. not sure why blackberry can't offer something familiar and even if it's only small profits. its profit none the less. now i know this is a very unlikely scenario as BlackBerry is no longer interested in the device sector. but nostalgia can be worth something can it not? why not let the crackberry bunch at least have their fix. even if it's just the namesake with a good keyboard. hell recycle old parts from passport and classic. and I know the horse is dead. I left it by the roadside a few years ago. but I'm looking for a new ride with the old feeling

    There are no profits though which is the entire issue of why TCL and BB are no longer in the mobile phone business

    Awesome! is "Grief" the new code name? I like it.
    Hmm might be appropriate because Charlie Brown knew that, "Good" comes before "grief".
    It never hurts to dream. - that is of course , unless you are sleepwalking with an ios or android in your hands ;-)

    I like the "Good Grief" shock in the experimental world.

    Two IPhones have been seen with BlackBerry Hub running. I don't know how far apple is along the chain. But it seems to be working. When they will fully BlackBerry quarantine the system, I do not know. The government of the United Kingdom is heavily involved, with at least six departments looking at the potential.

    But is Unihertz making money on hardware or on user data?

    Why does the local coffee shop sell coffee for half what Starbucks does?

    Is the local coffee shop close to the Starbucks? You might want to setup surveillance cameras by Starbucks' trash bins for how that local coffee shop is getting their coffee beans. Half-used half-priced!

    No... and they aren't in a building that cost a million dollars, they don't have twenty employees, and they aren't open 18 hours a day.

    It was a joke lol, I was not being serious. Guess I needed to use sarcasm font.

    I don't even like Starbucks, believe their products are not good and way over-priced (just like Apple... I don't like them either lol).
