Hopefully at least some of these devices actually are produced. The question is whether or not BlackBerry can stay relavant to enough consumers until these new devices show up.

Hopefully NONE of the device will be produce because it will use DEAD-END OS, and just like the Z10 & Q10 it will stuck in the warehouse.

I just hope BB will wake up soon, and change to android ASAP.

These are all certainly intriguing specs, but I don't think they'll pull BB out of this never ending slide they've been in for quite some time.

I definitely think devices with these specs will go a long way to showing the public that Chen is serious about making BB a contender again.

They may never reach the heights they once had, but they can surely become the much vaunted third ecosystem, surpassing WP.

QNX is a great platform and BB needs to leverage it more. To start, they can change the name of their OS to QNX, so people will make the connection. Either that or change the QNX name to Blackberry, being that QNX powers so many other devices besides Blackberry phones.

Agreed. These devices will go a long way in helping BlackBerry out. At the very least, devices like this will prompt the BlackBerry faithful that still use BBOS handsets to upgrade to BB10 handsets. And also at the very least, BlackBerry can at leverage the QNX brand more to push BlackBerry into the light by naming QNX based products "QNX by BlackBerry".

Nobody want to buy BB device anymore. BB brand has been tarnished since the BB OS7. Too many problem with the device. Right now BB brand is identical with CHEAP and OUTDATED. People in developing country buying BB device just to use the CHEAP BIS plan that can only be use for BBM (US$1/month). For real smartphone that mid-high salary, people use REAL SMARTPHONE like android.

These are some great spec'd devices! BlackBerry will have winners on their hands with these devices should the rumors turn out to be true. At the least, those still using BBOS devices will surely upgrade to BB10 devices.
