    I'm still a bit cautious about what most will consider a "surprise", and what us here at CB will actually be surprised by.

    I would tend to agree. I've mentioned Blend to a few people and no one has ever heard of it nor anything like it. I don't believe BB has officially or un-officially made any comment about it as of yet, aside from a small unusable demo some time ago at a BB event. I'm fairly certain almost all of the information I have seen about Blend has come from Bla1ze. Thanks Bla1ze.

    So, yeah... something like Blend, which almost all of us CB frequenters know about, is going to be a rather large surprise to the average person.

    Fingers crossed there is more but I'm not holding my breath.

    Is it possible Chen will show off a future phone in the same manner he personally showed the Passport and Classic months ago?

    I think BlackBerry is hiring Psy and he'll be doing Gangnam style with Mr. Chen.

    Wouldn't be very professional but it would be totally awesome!

    My guess is the z3 LTE being manufactured by Foxconn and will be available in NAM and EMEA

    No offense to the OP, but, this is how CB in particular can cause problems for BlackBerry, everyone anticipating something that doesn't pan out or is considered insignificant or worse is just a false rumor. Conclusion, kill the leaker.

    Hmm, something that hasn't been brought up yet...

    Cross platform BBM video?
    Doh! I thought I had a new idea to post. Made it all the way to post #41 before Thurask beat me to it!

    Major acquisition, or BlackBerry being bought.

    BB10 made available for free to other mobile phone manufacturers.

    Posted via CB10
    BB10 has always been available for licensing by other manufacturers, but there's a HUGE problem: anyone else who makes a BB10 phone will lose the right to Google Play for their Android phones.

    So, anyone who makes Android phones would have to walk away from that business to build BB10. I can't see that happening anywhere, can you?

    Google Play services framework as an optional install would be outstanding....

    ...but I'd really like a Z30 replacement with Passport or better specs :-D

    Not that I need to replace my Z30, but it sure would be nice!
    The legal hurdles to this are actually, honestly, insurmountable. BlackBerry will ditch BB10 for skinned Android before Google lets them have GPlay on BB10.

    Guys, what about a more premium version of the Passport?

    I'm sure I've read something like this in a thread lately? or just multiple colors?

    what do you think?
    There HAS been an interesting rumor of "premium" versions available with leather backs and gold accents. That might come after the initial market launch, though.

    Amazon tablet running bb10.

    Posted via CB10
    THAT'S an interesting idea. And plausible. Amazon's not a member of the Open Handset Alliance, so they wouldn't lose anything by licensing BB10.

    I don't think there's a hope in hell of it actually happening, but I like the way you think...

    It's really discourging that BlackBerry is making the passport the flagship, i mean they should have released an all touch with it to..

    A few other guesses :
    - BlackBerry virtual keyboard on iOS
    - Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst escort JC on stage with their new Passports

    1) as much as I like the company, this is blackberry... keep your expectations in check.

    2) it won't be a phone device, as this would distract from the passport and classic launch.

    3) a tablet - i guess if foxconn (or amazon?) is willing to take on the inventory risk, an outside possibility

    4) it could be blend - as I don't think they've ever formally announced or even acknowledged it. it doesn't really qualify as 'big' though to anyone remotely paying attention to BB though.

    4) possibly an advanced release of 10.3.1 -- this would be huge I think because a) existing BB10 users would finally get some extra love and b) its blackberry, when was the last time they did anything ahead of schedule.

    5) personally, I'd be happy enough to get the passport, classic and an announcement that BBM on iOS actually works properly.

    Stoked for tomorrow either way. Bring on that keyboard!

    I'm going very far off in dreamworld but how about iOS Application support in the roadmap? I know in the past they've tried to find a way to make iOS apps work... plus, the way iOS operates (just a home button) means apps would run easily in BB10, seeing as there are practically no buttons in iOS anyways. And then, BlackBerry can become the first completely compatible smartphone operating system in the world (BlackBerry, iOS, Android running under one hood).

    Just a distant dream...

    Lol, a dream we can all share, but I think not a likely one.

    iOS is a closed environment, so BlackBerry can't siphon code for a runtime. And if they could, greedy Apple would never get behind it.

    Ios apps have been made to run on BlackBerry 10, but development by the individuals behind it stopped some time ago, so the only issue is the lawsuit that would come from Apple

    Sadly, ANY product reveal will not be considered "big" by those outside of the BBRY community. Just look at today's 5% sell off, believe me if it were a truly BIG reveal, we would not have seen today's price action.

    My bet is toward a spokesperson for BlackBerry, like Drake or something ... Even though it was said that the discussion between the rapper and BlackBerry never took place an announcement in that sense wouldn't surprise me ...
