    How come the first people to review new BlackBerry phones aren't from CrackBerry? Doesn't Bla1ze deserve the first crack since he manages the largest community of people that this phone appeals to?

    Well maybe he is not available. Flying to vegas from Waterloo is not that easy. Plus he gets his first looks to his own .

    Maybe TCL has relationships already with Mr Mobile?

    Maybe TCL knows that to succeed, they need to reach people that have never heard of CrackBerry?

    Have you seen how ugly he is? That's why he doesn't get any first looks.

    Oh wait ... we are talking about phones? Sorry, continue on.

    He actually has a point this time.

    The more CrackBerry and the BlackBerry 10 tinfoilers dislikes it, the more of an indicator they are going the right direction for any possible chance of coming back.

    So the last place to make noise about it is actually CrackBerry.

    Besides what did they tell you that wasn't already seen here?

    For all we know, Bla1ze has a review unit (maybe, maybe not, but usually yep). However, one thing Mobile Nations has always done, is not try to be first out of the gate the moment public reviews are permitted, but instead takes time to spend more than a few days with a review unit. First out of the gate reviews are usually less reliable than reviews that spent a significant amount of time with the devices. That being said, I've yet to see Crackberry lag behind other sites when it comes to initial device reviews.

    Incidentally... what phone in particular are you referring to that other sites have access to and have written reviews for before Crackberry? Because honestly I can't think of any... and Crackberry has never been denied first access to a review unit for as long as I can remember.

    And how many other sites have a review unit of the Mercury and have posted reviews on it? Zero.

    Not really seeing an example of "How come the first people to review new BlackBerry phones aren't from CrackBerry?" being the case.

    True. And, incorrect as well. I believe Bla1ze is currently on the DTEK60 for his main device.

    WRT Mercury, guys like Phone Arena, Phonedog, Pocketnow, Mr.Mobile etc... did first looks of it and not thorough reviews.

    I think Bla1ze is doing a longer more detailed first look, maybe comparing it to the likes of Bold 9900, Q10, Passport, Classic, DTEK60, iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 to give an overall idea of the device.

    Iffy not the above, then he is waiting to do a final review of the official finalised unit.
