    So I keep hearing there will be 4 new devices this year but all I see are the ones listed below.

    1 - leap
    2- high end Porsche
    3- No name slider
    4 - ???

    Are they counting the classic in that list or did I miss a device.

    P.S. was hoping for a higher end full touch to replace Z10/Z30 but have to say kind of excited to see more of the slider.

    They did talk about another QWERTY device... but that was a little vague.

    Passport2 or maybe a Curve device to replace the Q5?

    Yeah, so what I've heard is

    Slider - high End
    Porsche Design (qwerty / full touch)
    Leap (already launched)
    Qwerty device (upgrade for Q5 or Q10)
    Something smaller in size from the Passport but bigger than Q10.

    I'm hoping the four devices are as follows :

    Leap
    Porsche Design Passport
    Slider
    Visa - unique full touch with the flip open keyboard. BlackBerry said it would be a qwerty design and that would still be a qwerty device. I think this would be easier to hold and less cumbersome than the slider that was shown off today. Now I know that you could keep the slider closed but it still is more bulky than the Visa concept would be.

    The bits and pieces in media refer it as 'another QWERTY device'.

    I assume they have added that on the list on 11th hour. Could be a natural upgrade for Q5. It makes sense. Similar to Leap in qwerty.

    Funny you mentioned that. My gf doesn't like big phones and wants something between the curve and the Q series. There must be others out there that would want an os10 smaller phone?

    I bet that's what it is, a successor to the Q5. 2 lower end devices and 2 high ends.

    Sort of dodgy to count these Porsche things when they're basically old designs with a bit of makeup slapped on them. Might as well release a green Classic and call it a "new" device.

    What I heard.

    Slider - High End (Possibly may be called the BlackBerry gLide NOT Glide and NOT GLide but "gLide" Don't ask why.
    Porsche Design (qwerty / full touch) - Expensive
    Leap (already launched) Low/Mid, but more Low End
    Passport 2 - Flagship with another unique Innovation, John Chen refuses to share with people just yet.

    Classic is a direct replacement for the BOLDs, Q5 & Q10. Gone are the names "Z" & "Q" for example.
    Classic series is the only series to have a Trackpad & Toolbelt on a BB10 Smart Phone.

    Any chance of a Classic 2 this year?

    1) Leap
    2) Porsche Design P'9984 (unknown of what)
    3) BlackBerry Slide
    4) Qwerty device

    There is so little info about anything at the moment and it sucks! I really want to know as well. A Passport 2 or a Classic 2 would be great but many are praying for just a simple upgrade for the Z30.

    It won't have a 2 year old SOC and a reduction of features over the current devices like what BlackBerry has done with the Leap. We know that much for sure.

    Already mentioned:
    1. Slider
    2. Leap

    Want these to happen:
    3. Classic II
    4. High end all-touch flagship for the all-touch fans (I'm not one of them, but there should be something for them to upgrade to)

    ((Also hoping for:
    A budget qwerty that could be the Curve successor))

    1. Leap (corporate all touch)
    2. Porsche qwety
    3. Slider (high end slider AND full touch)
    4. Classic 2 (high end qwerty)

    Thinking Classic sales are better than Passport, so it only makes sense to have a high spec Classic.

    4 - PKB device
    Not sure what the end of the year PKB device will be but I'm thinking it will not be a "Passport II". I think the anticipation is the Porsche is going to be modelled after the Passport so I don't see BlackBerry then turning around and releasing an 2nd Gen Passport right after a 1st Gen Porsche Passport. The Porsche guys already get a big enough rip off with an expensive last year's model phone.

    I don't know what it will be but I'm hoping a upgraded and rebranded Q10 with touch keyboard. This might never happen but I really like the size of the Q10. Of course more then likely it will be this codename "visa" phone with a pop out keyboard. I'm not too crazy about that idea... I mean what's the purpose of a top row keyboard standing alone?

    They can use a low cost QWERTY for sure with good specs. Unfortunately the specs need to be better than the Classic and A lot better than the Q5 for sure.
    But BlackBerry does a fantasticly Terrible job "Spec'ing" it's devices.

    Sexy White Z30....
