Concept design for BlackBerry 10 model shows Bold-esque QWERTY keyboard

0. phoneArena 24 Jun 2012, 13:16 posted on

With RIM desperately hoping that BlackBerry 10 is the key to a turnaround, we have another concept design for the first BB10 phone; with a Bold-esque QWERTY keyboard and a body that tapers as you move lower, this cocept model would certainly turn heads...

Looks nice but I still favor a slide out QWERTY model with big screen a la E75.

In order for RIM to survive is to choose a new OS Android or Windows.

They should do a slider design with a large touchscreen for BB10. I have a feeling it'll be good.

Sorry but big screens sale more phones. How about invent a pullout keyboard that is mind blowing to compliment a larger display.

Doesn't look bad but I agree with above. Slide out keyboards with larger displays are better. They aren't going to dial numbers in your pockets, slide out keyboards have bigger and more spaced out layouts, bigger more usable screens, etc.

I appreciate that rim is trying to keep to their traditions but it's really hurting them in the end.

Agree. If they do release another phone with this design again, they deserve to bankrupt. They simply refuse to learn that customers don't give a sh*t about their company's tradition, what they want is value for price, mostly by features such as does found on the qwerty Droid series: Big screen, fast processors, big, high-quality slide-out keyboards and a competent OS.

Blackberry models are exactly the opposite, but they charge sky high anyway.

If RIM doesn't understand that people want a large screen, then they are truly doomed.

Looks like a mix between a Sony and a Blackberry... I like it.
