New information leaks about the BlackBerry Windermere
The BlackBerry Windermere, aka the Q30, is expected to be equipped with a 4.5 inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1440 x 1440. That works out to a pixel density of 453ppi. The unique QWERTY keyboard, as we said above, uses a combination of touch and gestures to provide users with a way to type accurately and quickly. A 3450mAh battery will keep the Windermere working all day long. The 13MP rear snapper will feature OIS.
The BlackBerry Windermere will be built with a stainless steel frame and is supposedly light. It is thinner than the BlackBerry Z30, which weighs in at 9.4mm thick. For comparison, the Apple iPhone 5s is 7.6mm thin and the just announced Huawei Ascend P7 is 6.1mm thin. Last month, we showed you some cases for the phone that have allegedly been produced by a manufacturer.
Keep in mind that these are just rumors and the BlackBerry Windemere could turn out to be have completely different specs. Heck, the Windermere might not get released at all. Still, if you believe that where there is smoke there is fire, this has to get BlackBerry fans excited. We could see a new top-shelf 'Berry, with specs that could make the phone a challenger to iPhone and Android models.

Common don't troll guys,
All of us know BlackBerry is in a big catastrophic trouble, but let's wish them good luck in order to have a good competition.
I just saw the concept of the Q30 and it was so hideous. Actually, BlackBerry will release Q20 by the end of this year, which is a high end qwerty smartphone. So, I guess BlackBerry should focus more on the high end full touch screen smartphone. I'm really waiting for it and I found BB10 OS is more suitable for touch screen phones than the physical qwerty keyboard ones.

They are not trolling .. Blackberry is a walking dead company. It is impossible for a company to see how they are dwindling, and then insist on developing the hardware.
You are a Nokian and I guess you know very well that Nokia phased out Symbian at the time they sold more than 30 millions Symbian Smartphone per quarter because they found that Symbian is a dying platform. In contrast, Blackberry sold less than 5 million BB10 in more than one year and John Chen still thinks that BB10 could success.
BlackBerry will release Z3 & Q20 and that is it. The plug will be pulled.

NO please.. Nokia stopped developing Symbain when the trojan Stehen flop decided to destroy Nokia in order to get the company to microbitch. Nokia was very able to re-invent Symbian, MeeGo or adopt Android at that time instead of the WP that could not reach to 5% of what Symbian did in terms of selling rate.

Another troll at it I see. Lets revisit this statement when BlackBerry is still here releasing handsets and making a profit after the release of the two handsets you mentioned. I'll enjoy laughing at you and the other trolls.

Trolls just want to see a manufacturer they don't like going down, why we call them trolls? It's because they are trolling, so they won't wish a manufacturer good luck, they will only lick the manufacturers butt and wish their beloved manufacturer to be the number one forever but we all know that number one will not always be number one and will be replaced someday.
So, talking to these trolls are a waste of time.
I really hope that BlackBerry will release their full touch screen flagship, I don't want QWERTY. I want to give BlackBerry a try but none of them really attract me so much like what the Android and Windows Phone Nokia flagships do. I wish BlackBerry do well this time.

The specs sound good. I hope BB can get something like this out to market soon. BB has a lot of great technology and a long history of innovation.
Ideally, as BB develops new phones, they should utilize a sales strategy that does not depend on solely on carriers. Being able to buy a BB direct at a reasonable price would really help them.

BlackBerry should buy Cyanogen and make an open source secure Android OS that runs their value added services. Something like the new Vivoshot would be quite compelling with a great version of Android on it. BlackBerry could also partner with Chinese OEMs to build secure phones (with a great keyboard if you want it) at very reasonable price points. This is just scratching the surface.

The display resolution seems interesting .. first time to hear of such one.

Maybe the previous CEO 's, but not Chen. He has the company on the path to profitability. You'd know this if you didn't get all of your BlackBerry information from Phonearena, as well known BlackBerry troll site and haven for BlackBerry trolls like Manti123 and Nikolas.Oliver.

Nobody is going to buy this anyway at least not in the US. People choose better platforms that offer much more value such as android. What a waste buying a Blackberry

I am a security conscious phone user so I would consider buying this. But I would have to be convinced that BlackBerry will be around for a while.
