    From Chen's Twitter:

    @JohnChen is there something in the works for a phone from BB with a better camera? Please don't make me carry a 2nd phone just to snap pic

    @pjspainting yes, working on a phone with great camera, also upgrading Passport camera

    Hi guys, first ever post on crackberry.

    I live in Australia and have been using a blackberry phone for 9 years. Am currently using a 2 year old Z10 on the Vodafone network.......dont let me start about Vodafone!!

    Anyway, my contract expires soon and so a Vfone sales rep calls me up to remind me am due for an upgrade. This is my 8 call from them in this regard and I told this rep the same line......am not upgrading till I get the phone that I want and am thinking of moving to Telstra. She gave me the same line...Vote doesn't do bbery anymore...would you like an iPhone 6?

    To cut a long story short, she asked me to hold whilst she confirmed with her manager that there are no bberys coming.

    These were the exact words she said when she resumed the call...

    You are in luck mate, we have a blackberry venice, some blackberry phone with android or something which might be on sale soon"

    Was surprised to say the least. This phone exists

    Why not build a blackberry passport all touch same specs

    Posted via CB10
    What does" same specs" mean to you. What would be the screen dimensions? Do you want a iPad Mini Mini as your phone?

    It is the width of the Passport that puts me off. 77.8 vs 90.3 mm.

    Just not very ergonomic.

    Last year the Passport was officially presented in mid-September and first pics/videos were leaked in June, if I remember well.. Knowing that this Venice should come out around November/December I believe we should see something within a month ;-) Finger crossed!

    The blackberry Venice will most likely be blackberry's next flagship phone. It is rumored to have a stunning 5.1 inch display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440. I hope that it will have a slide out keyboard as well as a software keyboard without blackberry having to make it thick. If they try to make it a bit thinner that the z10 while adding more power, it will definitely attract more people.

    Do any of you think that this will be the phone will be a comeback for BlackBerry? I hope.

    Many people look at sheet specs instead of optimized performance for the device, they have to beef up numbers to start with to attract more people. Passport is enough for me but if they make a refit passport with better specs then what it already has it would be a big bonus.

    Chen doesn't want hardware sales to pick up IMHO. Goes against the plan. Plan is to be a software company.

    Keep the software and use samsung to build its units, it would be amazing but I still prefer the qwerty keybad the passport and classic offers.

    The hardware in this will be equal to the passport.

    BlackBerry never puts anything top end

    It's because they don't need it. Unless they really go for android, then it will really need the top end spec,

    Like the ultra hot (literary) snapdragon 810 processor, i guess

    will making the BB Slider an android phone make it less attractive?!

    The specs for this phone is more than adequate.

    Snapdragon 801 is still top of the line IMO.

    At least it's not a dual core from 5 years ago. In that case, my Q10 still runs better than my Galaxy S5.

    That's hard to say since the specs are unknown, other than baseless made up rumors. I suspect it will have solid specs, but the jury's still out.

    will making the BB Slider an android phone make it less attractive?!
    Not to me. But considering Android is far more popular than BB10 it's fair to say that the slider would sell more if it runs Android vs BB10.
