    Maybe They listen, and make a good next device, we all can give our thoughts . When we reach at least 100 opinion I will send the link to their contact support just to see if they reply,

    For example I will ask for a passport 2 with some upgrades : better camara, water resistant a improve in pkb size and feel , dark hub and implement of some blackberry gestures. A little trackpad in the logo and finger security.

    Some may say I am a dreamer, but I am not the only one...

    BlackBerry is still 100% responsible for the software, so your suggestions for that have nothing to do with TCL.

    They already have a better camera and water-resistance may come anyway.

    Passport form-factor is not permitted on Android due to 1:1 screen ratio.

    Demands?

    I'd make them polite request, but to be honest you should be happy they do anything....

    I agree with the other posters here that we should be happy if and when a new product is released and hopefully it's more sooner then later.

    The Passport was a hard sell and without carrier retail in-store demos I would guess almost impossible. If TCL actually sells anything in NA or Euorpe expect something low-risk, low-volume.

    Water-resistant and a physical keyboard? Hope you don't mind paying north of $1000 USD for your giant brick with mediocre specs.

    Have to hope that TCL will be able to get some traction with carriers.... because as you say, here it seems most buy a more costly phones via their carrier with some sort of "special". Otherwise for direct purchase it's the really cheap phones that sell. You can take a look at Amazon's top selling phones... six of the top ten are under $100.

    Think Alcatel has not had much success with the Idol 4 devices in the US.... That mid to low end market is just so crowded, but throw a BRAND name on a phone (even a damaged brand), and maybe they'll be able to capture a large portion of the market.

    They will neither have time nor budget for listening to personal demands. Passport was and is still a good device, but simply not for everyone. Especially with that horrible pricing strategy.

    Lol demands. I'm sure TCL is interested in the demands from a tiny group of people whose platform of choice is dying. They could care less what your demands are. They'd like to reach a large audience, not cater to a small group who thinks they know what is best because they liked BB10.

    We are in no position to make demands. I would expect that the pkb phone is dead. Stock up on passports, classics, and q10s if you want to have enough for the future.

    BlackBerry has full say so still over specs and design, plus I'm sure they'll make a BlackBerry water resistant anyway. But I like your idea.

    Specs and design - no. Software - yes.

    BlackBerry may have certain minimum conditions for the licencing, but it's mostly none of BlackBerry's business.

    An evolutionary first in the mobile industry.....

    Traditional and next-generation designs will be part of TCL's portfolio
    However, today's announcement reveals one other interesting aspect about the upcoming QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone, and that's the fact that it will be an evolutionary first in the mobile industry.

    para antenna! camera not stick out, no glass back, BB logo in the front - laser marking back lid with low light, and better design on hardware - make it stand out from the slap, add metallic color if necessary, or tone on tone (polish and matt finishing or interwoven carbon fiber backing?). and yes, good audio - cover near full spectrum, low and high end - use minimum 2 or 3 speakers if in need, and multi color LED (or better, edge lid using light pipe... what ever, make it stand out from the sheep--- make it FLAGship... wave the flag to tell everyone - LOOK AT ME, I GOT A BB- don't you dare to steal it... it will brick, it will broadcase your location, it will call up AR mob...?). that is what I want ;-) Not much.

    I wonder if they'll release a BlackBerry/Palm hybrid.... since they now own both "brands". Bring back the Palm Stylus to go along with BlackBerry's keyboard and toolbelt? Try to recapture both fan bases with one device.
