    Saw this on the Fairfax Financial open letter.. obviously it could just be a joke but you never know, it seems like the timeline for the rumoured devices could be sooner than we think..

    Q20 to be unveiled by Beginning of April?! (Speculation)-img_20140309_160901.png

    Sounds about right... Z3 was built in February, ready for launch in late April/early May.

    Q20 will have a longer testing process because of the belt, so release 5 months after build seems plausible!

    I hope it is as what John Chen said "built for hard core users", reliability and security!! And it must have a Paratek Antenna!

    In the Bloomberg interview, Chen suggested later in the year. Around Sept./Oct., but he also said he wanted it out "yesterday." Who knows, but April seems quick.

    No definitely not. He was asked about the Q20 and said Spetember/October.

    I think there was no statement made from anyone that sounded valid - at least nothing that I'm aware of.
    There was also no official announcent like for the Q20.
    All I remember is an earlier JC interview where he confirmed that hey will continue to develop & build new touchscreen only and keyboard devices. But the names Q30 and Z50 were created here on this site, and didn't come from an official BB source, if I remember correctly.

    I'm giving them these names. I know that it probably won't be called that but it's close enough. The jakarta was rumored to be called Z5 and will be released as Z3.

    But if theyre able to get a hold of the real physical devices that soon, then we could see what they look like even sooner, and the release date might be sooner than the end of the year, it might be Chen just making sure he doesn't disappoint and the plan is to bring then out sooner than the end of the year..

    Raffling them does not mean they will actually have the phones. It's probably like a pre-order.

    Chen did say he does not want to disappoint as they have done in the past, but they can't simply release this like just another phone. It will take months to develop a seamless integration of hardware navigation buttons in an OS and apps that were made for touch input.

    But we(or i) don't know how far advanced the phone is in production or what stage it's at, it might take a long time but you don't know how much of that time has already passed,

    And the way they announced it at MWC, it looked like they were pretty confidant about it, so they must have gone way past inception, I would go as far as to say they have the prototypes already..

    Anyway I knew that there would be comments like yours that's why there's speculation in the title.. it might be nothing, but it might be something too..

    TechCraze C0008DDD1

    EDIT, and let's say it's a pre-order, unless that's an abnormally early one that still puts the public release sooner than expected..

    I am guessing pre-order too. Or Prem was using that - it's in an if-sentece after all - to create some interest.

    Well, if he can get John Chen, ... and if he's got the phones by then... is conditional, one won't happen without the other...

    "No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

    You think besides a Q20 as a 'classic' BlackBerry with a belt there'll also be such a thing like a Q30 without?

    They definitely have to get this released. BlackBerry cannot just sit on the side lines without at least one new model device while the new HTC One, iPhone 6, and the Galaxy S5 is released.

    It's time to haul some *** BlackBerry.

    Guys I need some help explaining to me what's so hard in integrating the track pad with bb10.

    The way I see it is all gestures remain, and track pad works just like the 9900, which already had a touch screen. Touch pad does not need to replace all gestures, just assist in selection.

    Unless there is smthg am missing.

    I'd imagine it is programming button
    S to actions previously done by gestures. Totally different os.

    Absolutely... they made 4 categories for a reason.... affordable (Z3),classic(Q20),highend(whatever Q30 or Z50) coming next. the fourth category we don't care about.
