    Hamburg is the Neon is the DTEK50.

    Mercury will be out 'before the end of the fiscal year' according to Alex Thurber.

    You see? I don't see it that way... I love the physical kb, I had two passports and I currently have a priv... but the reality is that we are a niche market... so, at least in that way, it makes sense for BlackBerry to release an all-touch device with higher-end specs than a qwerty higher-end... would be great for us to also get the qwerty high-end? Yes, I would love that, but the market is clear, people prefer all-touch...

    no question about it, to me there is nothing like typing on a real kb... but sadly so many people are not interested at all in that that you cannot blame BlackBerry for offering the high-end as an all-touch, and a mid-range qwerty (i mean, why develop a more expensive phone that so few will buy?)... BlackBerry has to make smart business decisions, and that's one in my book...

    Come to think about it... maybe I should give the Galaxy Note a try. Install Graffiti on it, I'll be reliving my PalmOS days with the stylus should the PKB go the way of doo-doo.

    Considering they reported Q4 FY2016 on April 1 2016, so that pegs Q4 FY2017 ending at March 2017.

    That's too long (March 2017) for me to wait for the Rome/Mercury.

    Mercury = Rome = redesigned Vienna. That's what I gathered.

    I loved Graffiti. Was pretty fast with it. I must say PalmOS was pretty damn good.
