I'm digging the design as it reminds me of the iPhone 5S. Let's see what this phone is made of in the next coming months.

I read a news sometime ago where Nikon said they will enter the phone market. But I hope they will enter it with a very well established brand, I would really love to see a Blackberry with a Nikon camera setup. Best seller ?

Uh, no?

I like BB10, but no way would I consider it as my main driver. Plus, any effort BB makes is useless as they just sink themselves further into a hole.

In what way BB using a Nikon camera set up in their next phone would make them sink more ? You are just a manipulated PA guyee because I know a lot of people that would be ready to throw their Android phone if BB uses a... Nikon camera chip.

No one is buying BB. Why do you keep lying to yourself?

BB10? Seriously? That OS is targeted at corporate use. Why would businessmen need a 20 MP camera?

1/1.7 is a point'n'shoot camera sized sensor. Don't get too excited.

It's the sensor size of the Nokia N8. Well I don't know how well N8 performs vs the new phones of this year, but with updated software and the bigger more sensible sensor I'm sure that this 1/1.7 will outperform any 1/3 sensor of this world.

If Nikon enter this game they´ll win ! But ... not with this Vivo, nor BB, just with Sammy or others top dogs.

Not sure why anyone would consider this an innovation. Phones with similar forms existed in the past, just to mention Nokia or siemens.
