    Does anyone think that it is Chen's plan is to standardize blackberry's android offerings, 3 form factors, on one cpu chipset? I can see it working if they can get their release time table lined up with when the newest cpu comes out, so the first phone of the year can be a flagship device and then wait 6 to 7 months to release the 2 reaming form factors with the same cpu at a cheaper cost.

    They don't need to.

    BB10 required custom QNX drivers for each component, so building most of the lineup on one platform saved R&D time and money. Whereas with Android, any mobile chipset is well supported upon launch. Qualcomm can easily justify making Android drivers for a chipset because there are many OEMs that want them.

    As far as I know, the next BB device is slated to run the Snapdragon 617, which is a different chip than the Snapdragon 808 in the Priv.
