    CNET found some pics of TCL foldable phone prototypes. Would be interesting to see BlackBerry Mobile adapt some of those designs for the Key3 or else...

    Anyway, I think foldables and physical keyboards are staying very apart, unless they can get the screen to fold over the keyboard like a flip phone. They would also need to make sure they glue everything in place this time.

    This model would be 101% so popular in women population if they really produce it. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

    I definitely would go for a flip phone with a KEYยฒ style pkb. There's is nothing more satisfying than angrily hanging up on someone than slamming the phone closed.

    Okay now, everbody knows by now (don't they?) that there is a minimum safe distance for carrying a phone on your body regularly right, and the standards do not include directly wearing it. This would require some kind of fancy shielding technology, to not also mess with the radio signals. Not sure whether 5g makes that a bigger or lesser problem though.

    (I still say a straightforward slim bendy like laptops have without bending the screens (without the massive gaps and bezels with a fold-out or slide out keyboard on the long side might be good...a more economical model too, using current fabs probably)

    If they "knew" that.... then LTE watches wouldn't be so big right now.

    People "knew" that using wireless phones in the 80's had dangers.... but those that still have home service today, still use them.

    People "knew" that when cell phone first went "mobile" (not a car installation or a bag) that there were reported dangers to holding one up to your head... people still do it.

    To be fair, a modern smartphone has an output signal that is 1/10th as powerful as those early analog 3W cell phones.

    See, for example I didn't "know" you were joking, that could have been harmful to me - if i didn't know :-)
    Just to be sure, a slap on the wrist phone, might be more serious that just a slap on the wrist.

    If it were the same width and build quality as a Passport, but opened out to a normal aspect screen, chuck in some top end specs and call it 'The Bold ', count me in. ....... Oh, and a BB10 skin.
