Patent award suggests BlackBerry Torch style BlackBerry 10 model could be coming

Could BlackBerry be readying a BlackBerry 10 handset with the Torch form factor? A patent has been awarded to the Canadian handset manufacturer for a portrait QWERTY slider looking exactly like the BlackBerry Torch model; the patent, which was filed by BlackBerry back in December 2011, includes a diagram of a phone that looks suspiciously like the BlackBerry Q10...

I disagree, at least among blackberry users. Those who are loyal to BB will go with their current favourite style - curve/bold being q10, and torch being this model. Believe it or not there are those out there who would like a big touchscreen but don't want to type on it. This is the phone for them.
And fail or not, thank goodness not everyone is just doing a touch-screen only slab. Variety is nice don't ya think?

Portrait slider.... My favorite form factor. From my trusty, die hard Motorola Karma to my enjoyable Palm Pre Plus, I loved that style.
If BlackBerry wants me to really consider their new OS, this would get me to pay attention.
Because, of course, BB really gives a crud what I think....

The problem for BB is their market has largely moved on. A day late and a dollar short.

Fail before it ever gets our the door. Blackberry is complete junk!

If Nokia and WindowsPhone don't get off their butt and announce a phone like this in the near future.. I maybe just switching over to BB. I love my Dell Venue Pro and can't wait to have another more modern one with a good camera. This is exactly the kind of phone I like.
