    Once again, well done Mr Chen and team. This is why you're CEO, and you being CEO is why I bought shares of BlackBerry.

    I actually really like what they're doing with the Manitoba, though I wonder if the screen resolution will be upgraded along with the other goodies.

    Even if it isn't, a $400 price point for a 5" touchscreen phone will be attractive for many. I would call this the successor to the Z10, at least in terms of where it will fall in the North American lineup.

    And I don't know why people are so confused about Khan; the Porsche Design models haven't had anything to do with improved internals (except for the 64GB storage on the P'9982). This is a rebodied Classic. I expect it will be gorgeous, but it won't be a spec monster.

    I actually wish BB had just bought Vertu...

    A Vertu BB would be nice although I would not be able to afford one, at least the P9983 is within my income bracket lol

    Very happy the Khan is a Classic and not a Q10. Should keep it quite fresh and relevant unlike the P'9982. My sole friend who can afford this said he was waiting for this device to replace his P'9981.

    So the Z3 LTE is going to be released in NA, correct? Wonder how they would position and price this. It seems lower specced than even the Z10 but has a couple of advantages over it (battery and screen size).

    Very disappointed to hear this. When it's time to upgrade my Z10 (early 2015), I'm gonna need to get a flagship all-touch BlackBerry -- assuming one exists.

    If all that is available is a device with a non-hd display and (by that time) old specs and low resolution screen, then I'll need to get a Galaxy S6 or HTC's latest One phone.

    Still not interested in anything that Apple makes though.

    C'mon BlackBerry... make us a new flagship **spec'd-out** all-touch by mid 2015 at the latest!

    400 for a Z3 spells trouble to me. If you want to play the price game step it up BlackBerry!

    So pretty much everything that has been speculated here on the CB forums already and nothing really new? Got it.

    Khan having the classic specs to me is news.

    We all thought it was gonna be Q10 hardware.

    Im glad that it's gonna be better than classic specs. This way its gonna have a chance.

    I doubt it will sport same dual-core as the Z30 (which has the best Qualcomm 2x processor in term of power). Same frequency does not equal to same SoC.

    If so, I believe it would anger many of its owners.

    Nobody said current phones wouldn't go past 10.3.1. What the understanding is, is that as of 10.4 they're going to 64-bit, and current BB10s won't upgrade.

    That doesn't mean that there won't be subsequent 10.3.x revisions though.

    Why? If they work as expected then why do they need updates? BB10 is finally maturing and getting many if the bugs worked out. Major updates for existing devices will probably not be like it has from 10.0 to now 10.2.1, but will likely only be for security holes and major bugs.

    I welcome the Z3 LTE. I like the look of it...BBRY really optimized the real estate on it compared to the Z10/30.

    I found my next device.

    If many don't consider the Z30 much of an upgrade from a Z10 (they're wrong, btw), no way would this device be considered an upgrade. We'll have to see what what the final product is, but it looks right now that there will be no device for me to upgrade to from my Z30. But I have another year and a half before I need to worry about that. We'll see what shakes out, but it's becoming clear that the high end focus is on the business professional user which Chen and co. seem to be convinced means QWERTY, which means not for me. But it is the direction I think they need to go to be successful. It's too bad. I think the full screen BB10 devices are outstanding, and it's the Z30 that has received the positive press and credibility despite nearly zero, if any marketing support from BlackBerry.

    I think Chen is focused on getting the brand reestablished. And for many the BlackBerry brand IS qwerty.

    Once sales have definitively turned around (which I expect by the end of calendar 2014), they'll be in a position to look at another high-end full touch phone. I expect for spring/summer next year.

    PS: I define "turned around" as a) BB10 sales surpassing BBOS (which finally happened last quarter) and b) steady overall sales growth (not there yet, but on its way)

    Ouch... I can understand this for the Q10 and Z10 (they will be over 2 years old), but that is pretty bad for the z30 and unacceptable for the 32bit Z3 and (especially for--I'm assuming--32 bit Passport and Classic).
