    Went in to fido today, the rep saw I had a passport and started chatting to me about BlackBerry. Asked me how I liked the passport etc. He then told me he knew a guy who work at BlackBerry and the guy showed him the new BlackBerry phone, which he said was like the torch. Upon further questioning, he confirmed it was a slider, and is a very light device. He said it was android, but looked totally like BlackBerry. I asked him if the edges were curved and he confirmed that as well. Lastly, I asked him about price point, he said about $500? But I dont know how accurate this is.

    Hmmm...Ok because relations between Fido and BlackBerry are super strong.

    But then again, maybe it was more important for him to be fired rather than keep the job at BB. Apple offered better job?

    I don't think this could be possible in today's BlackBerry.


    I remember working with Telus corporate office. One time guys were showing off a device launching on telus but I spied on his smoke break an 8220 pearl flip. During periods of its rumored existence.

    I'd like to believe you but so many rumors are going around and their really starting to hurt BlackBerry. Just please be honest about this stuff.

    This is the same reason I simply call BS
    With JC as CEO BB has been super hush about devices, so i doubt some lowly sales person has really seen the device
    From what we gather, the most possible scenario is the new slider will feature the QNX hypervisor dual booting BB10 and android intertwined as 1 OS. However, this is purely speculation as well. As for hardware, i think there are "leaked" specifications, but i would trust it with a grain of salt.
    I knew a guy who actually worked at BB and said he saw the Z3 LTE in 2013 July.......... said it was going to be released in September........ I called BS and I was right. Turns out he saw a Z3 with a "4G" option which like the Z10 STL100-1 can show up randomly. Entry level BB employees wouldn't see the Slider as we call it until about 1.5 months before release when it goes to carriers for testing

    This is bull****. I met a few guys in BlackBerry conferences for developers. I even had the chance to test the Z10 before it was released when we later sad in a bar. Most of the developers love to talk to enthusiasts so no one gets fired for that.

    It's not BlackBerry sending random guy to talk with a random representative, it's a friend of the fido representative who had the phone and showed to him

    The Passport wasn't running Android, so given the tiny BB10 audience (i.e. The only people that would even consider it), it probably did sell well considering how different it was.

    The Slider running a full Android OS would have more appeal than the Passport.

    Like Usman above said, that was before Chen's times at BlackBerry. Right now, heads would roll quickly.

    BlackBerry allready mention that the phone was coming out with BB10 and there is no evidence that it comes out with Android.
