The other day, we showed you a picture purportedly of the BlackBerry Jakarta aka BlackBerry Z3. While this is one of the low-end models being designed, produced and warehoused by Foxconn, BlackBerry is believed to be working on a pair of high-end models in-house.One is expected to be the quad-core powered BlackBerry Ontario while the second could be a 64 bit octa-core model...

jajaja = hahaha in Spanish. In Spanish, the 'j' has the same sound as the 'h' in English, hence jajaja.

I read your comment before I looked at the pics & I thought to myself, "Smurf needs to stop exaggerating & being so damn dramatic." I looked at the pics. I take it back.

After seeing this, I think that BlackBerry has traveled back 10 years in the past. That design is simply awful!

No, they did not travel back in time. Actually, they traveled forward into the future - the future where the only employee left at BB is John Chen. This is the WORST example I have seen yet to wear the BB/RIM logo.

The company as a whole is incompetent as they have failed to adapt to the marketplace....actually not a troll, but someone who knows that Blackberry's time is done - they should just make software for other OSes...SEGA is a good example of a company who recognized that it was time to get out the console market....

And you would be the expert on such matters? Please...there time is nowhere near done. Their stock has been rallying. The New CEO John Chen has been making all of the right moves and decisions to make the company profitable again. The three incompetents before Chen is who brought the company to where it is now. He's been bringing it back. A year or two from now when the company is still here and profitable, I'd like you to be one of the first to come on this site and recant your negative words.

I love how a troll calls someone who has been on this site for almost 4 years, a troll....hi-larry-us

Then you're 4 years a troll.

hmmm, clearly you do not know much about what is going on with Blackberry - go ahead and read up on their marketshare and their many mishaps over the years, and then get back with me...please, be better informed before you call someone a troll...

See, there you go, again. Look up Blackberry, and see how well it is doing - it is barely hanging on for its life....they should do what SEGA did, as at least SEGA knew when to give up..apparently, you do not...

also, look up the definition of a troll, in terms of the internet - if I was trolling, I would be bringing up something not related to Blackberry - well? Get going, you got some researching to do - and your name is alphageek, which is not very apropo, mind you...maybe alphanoob is a better suited name...

I know what troll means, you troll. And if you don't have anything meaningful to add, perhaps you should keep your mouth shut and let the ADULTS have an ADULT conversation. Why would you hope for the downfall of any company? You must not be pro-choice or understand that choice is good for the industry and the consumer. You don't like BlackBerry? Fine. Go to a non-BlackBerry article and post all you want. And you keep bringing up SEGA. You must have been a big fan. Probably broke your heart when they went out of business. You need to follow suit and go out away from BlackBerry related articles. And clearly, you only get your news from phonearena, or you would know how BlackBerry stock is the rise. Networkdood? More like NetworkDUD....

This 'design' makes me want to go out and buy a Bold 9930, just to send a vote with my wallet to BB that their new product designs are crap and that they should stop right now. I just can't bring myself to waste a contract upgrade, so I won't.

Not bad, looks like it may be a bit stretched horizontally.
Looks very much like it could be an early prototype.

Blackberry just made their death wish. Hideous doesn't even cut it.
