    Not yet. I'll be sure to update the list as soon as I have some info. It could take a while and could happen in Q4 only, when they move to a new OS version...

    On top of STA100-1to5 we now have a -9 and a prototype. One of them could be the Astro X

    Added R numbers for Kopi and some Cafs. We must be getting close to a release for those as well. Probably Q4 or Q1.

    No idea. We haven't seen any pictures yet, so not sure when this will land.

    Z30 has gone through certification a while back and now the P9882 and 3 devices from the Caf series have gone through as well. We might be close (1-2 months) to a launch.

    OP I am really confused as to what the cafe series is since it has a sprint variant but why would sprint carry a lower end device even though they turned down the Z10. As well I am sure I was hearing about the cafe series being some type of accessory(dummy tablet, dock) for the Aristo.

    It's definitely not a dummy device since it has radios and it's classified as a phone in the OS: PLATFORM_CLASS=phone.
    Sprint may have turned down the Z10 because it was old hardware from the start. These 2 new series use Snapdragon 400.

    Hey oftur, sorry a few question with regards to the models, with regards to the cafe series I assume there is a removable battery? Also do you know if the usb port is a mini b (like the z10) or a mini ab?

    Yes, removable battery (from what I can see). No idea about USB ports, only A series seems to have a special USB profile.

    Wonder why they chose to include removable batteries in these devices but not in the A series or even the Q5.

    I think for the q5 it made it cheaper?

    But for the a series I think it was to fit a bigger battery while keeping it slightly slimmer than it would have been, maybe it was also a requirement for wireless charging?

    So is it confirmed none of the z30's will have a removable battery?

    How long from certification is it usually before public release?

    Hasn't been officially confirmed, we'll still have to wait a few weeks for that, but the OS is built that way.

    I would say no more than 2 months, but it depends on the country. I'm sure experts will have examples of devices having been certified 6 months before launch...

    Looks like Cafe will have 4.5" screen, so I wouldn't be surprised if this ended up to be a Z15

    Are you sure about processor in the Cafe? (MSM8930)

    Since it's going through certification, I doubt this will change.

    Perhaps BlackBerry got the naming system wrong in the first place (or revised it) and the models are now as follows:
    Touch
    High End - Z30
    Mid End - Z10 (has hdmi unlike Q5, but no Miracast)
    Low End - Cafe
    Keyboard
    High End - Q10 (equivalent build to Z30 with amoled and glass weave?)
    Mid End - Q5 (equivalent build to Z10?)
    Low End - Kopi (somehow even cheaper than Q5?)

    I know there a inconsistencies (resulting from changes during rollout), but this may be the 6 models spoken of.

    To generalize the "levels'" feautres:
    High End - AMOLED, expensive build; Glass Weave, Bold Style Keyboard
    Mid End - LCD, decent Build
    Low End - LCD, cheapest build
