    And Z10

    I'd love to see Z10 and Z30 successors, but it doesn't seem to be the direction BB is heading with their "Enterprise" focus. I'm guessing they see a high-end all-touch phone as a consumer device.
    Personally I don't think we will ever see a refreshed z10. The market has moved away from devices with small screens.

    If we reduce bezel sizes we could see a 5" phone with a smaller form factor, something g closer to the z10

    Let't revisit the upcoming Slider BB10 device. To cater to the Full touch and physical keyboard fans. The rumoured specs look amazing so far.

    BlackBerry 10 Slider - High End Specs

    Snapdragon 810, 64-Bit Processor
    3GB Ram
    32GB Inbuilt, Plus 128GB MicroSD
    3850 mAH Non-Removable Battery
    16MP Rear/5MP Front Camera w/ 1080p Video
    BlackBerry unveils new BlackBerry 10 slider Smartphone

    I think we should establish a definition of a Crackberry All-Touch Blackberry - a slider that is closed.

    I doubt very much we'll see a high end all-touch device as it would compete along side a gaggle of high end all-touch devices, including the Apple 6+ and the S6. However, we might see all-touch Passport as it would play to a niche of large format, unique and non-mainstream buyer. Further, it could be produced fairly quickly and inexpensively as the design form factor is already in existence.

    A device to compete with the "big boys" would be like painting a target on Blackberry's back.

    That's fine, but it is needed now! Not might, not coming soon, now! You have your first big wave of BB10 users in the Z10 coming off contract. All touch is your biggest BB10 base and they are being ignored. I'd buy an all touch Passport, but instead they have to make an AT&T version, an Oslo version, a Porsche version. It's like they are thinking they can make this form factor sell well if that's all they make, oh and a white Classic, so business like.

    I agree. Me and my wife are coming off contract soon and we have Z10's. Got them when they first came out. I'm intrigued by the slider but I wonder how thick it will be. Some are saying the thickness of the Z30. If that's the case I think it will be ok, just never use the slider and use as full touch all the time. Will have to wait and see. Anything with just a keyboard won't suffice for me or my wife. I hope BlackBerry does something because there will be a big wave of Z10 owners wanting to upgrade. But I think the next big thing will be the slider! I can't see this being released this year, or I could be wrong. Will have to wait and see.

    I'd rather have a larger battery instead of the space used for the slider. Not all full touch device owners want a slider.

    Awaiting the next flagship full touch.

    I would love the Z50 to be like the Z30 but slightly smaller and lighter, with an AMOLED screen that can be brightened in sun light, and a better camera.

    No new high end touch only devices are planned to be released, at least this year. The Slider isn't touch only.

    Yes and at MWC he said 4 devices, and is now down to two. His conviction the this year didn't sound reassuring to me. Point is things change, especially now in BlackBerry's hardware division. Watch the interview for yourself though instead of reading about it.

    BlackBerry Slider: October 2015
    P'9984: (Early) December 2015
    BlackBerry Oslo: Jan 2016

    My guess. It seems like it's years away, and I wish it was sooner but I guess BlackBerry want it perfect before they release.

    Didn't mean to sound like a jerk, it is just many articles are saying now end of year, but in actually hearing it from Chen's mouth I didn't hear 100% confidence when he was pressed on it.

    By definition a slider is thicker than an all touch device.

    All that is needed is a full touchscreen Passport version. I have measured the current keyboard version and if you were to build such a device it would measure 5.5 inches corner to corner.

    The specs could stay the same apart from the screen. BlackBerry could change the screen from a LCD screen to an OLED one.

    Minimal cost. I would buy it would you?
