What do BlackBerry fans dream of? Here's what...
Probably due to this overwhelmingly gloomy atmosphere over at the BlackBerry camp, independent designer Michal Bonikowski has decided to show his vision of how the new BlackBerry phone should look. Obviously, Bonikowski envisions a very large screen, overall stylish casing, and... Windows Phone?!
Oh dear, it looks like the only people in this world who're still having any hopes in the BlackBerry OS are those working at RIM. But hey, if Windows Phone is what it takes to get the company back on its feet again (although some people will say there's nothing wrong with it in the first place), then do it! Of course, it's easy for us to say it.
What do you guys think of the concept images below? Do you like the idea of a well-spec'd BlackBerry smartphone running Windows Phone 8? We certainly do!

... Troll? It's a concept, meaning; what could possibly, maybe, unlikely happen. And all WP have 3 buttons, just not all of them are capacitive. God, I hope that was a joke...

But what are the specs like? "like s3, oneX. ....!
Nice looking phone!

If Blackberry believes in Microsoft it'll see a huge break through. I will buy a Blackberry Windows Phone without doubt. (The start and back buttons actually differ from reality)

drat. I planned on making a concept like this...
I will make an Android BB soon, and I will tip you PA. ;)

I'm an avid BlackBerry user (a highly unappealing BlackBerry OS 7 smartphones, as you say, *rolls eyes*), and I like Windows Phone. I don't want the two to mix. If I ever had to leave BB, I would go Windows phone, but I DO NOT want Windows 8 on my BlackBerry. I'm just waiting patiently for BB10.

While BB OS 7 is unappealing to iphonearena its appealing to the rest of the world that's including me....smh!

That's most likely gonna be a reality in about a year... But with Android. The camera, removable battery, and memory expansion is arguable though. One can dream...
27. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
I would love that to. But that's next year perhaps.

Windows Phones is more suited for Blackberry since it can handle both Consumer and Enterprise market
However with Android you can also optimized it for Enterprise

I agree, i think MS should go with RIM rather than Nokia if they really want to make their mark in the enterprise sector. Couple MS's enterprise software expertise with RIM's enterprise security and servers, BAM! we'll get one heck of an enterprise mobile product..
And leave Nokia with MeeGo and Symbian.. Then we'll see Android, WindowsBerry (or BlackWindows, or whatever), Symbian and Jolla fighting the ultimate mobile OS war.. oh, I almost forgot the kiddo, iOS..
28. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Yeah I was thinking similarly,
Microsoft Enterprise experience combine with RIM
Yet, I want more manufacturers to support WP8
40. bayusuputra (Posts: 941; Member since: 12 Feb 2012)
they can always put RIM in the position of Nokia now. Like make Nokia the preferred partner, but still allowing other OEMs to produce WP. Anyway, the other OEMs need to produce WP since they have licensing agreements with MS. It's the same situation like now, just replace Nokia with RIM. :)

How about MS buys out Nokia n BlackBerry :)

They aren't dreaming of a Windows 8 handset, trust me.

This is the best news I've heard of regarding RIM in the past few months--RIM's experience with hardware, coupled with software genius of Microsoft, will yield amazing results! Perhaps RIM can even contribute its knowledge in enterprise integration and security to cater to the business mobile user. RIM should run with this before its too late and other manufacturers gain a lead on the WP8 market.

It's a nice concept, but it looks as big as the Note... Though the Note was a big success, I wouldn't be surprised to see Microsoft try a WP Note.

If i wanted a windows phone i would buy a windows phone. Nokia already makes great looking hardware, i wouldn't buy a blackberry for that.
29. beillax (Posts: 23; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
I like the looks of that phone! That is a really neat design.
30. The_Godfather (Posts: 158; Member since: 26 Apr 2012)
holly mother. If this is the design.. I owe you the money BB definitely would be the 1st one to do pre order lolz very nice design and concept.

If previous internet info is correct Microsoft has already approached "Rim" to make a deal but they refused Microsoft's efforts. If Rims Value continues to fall I predict that within 3 months. Microsoft or another company will get control of "Rim". Microsoft needs could use Rim's Brand name to promote it's Enterprise smartphones running windows phone 8 and using "Rims" phone services which are popular to business People I Think Microsoft can save Nokia by just giving them enough money to hang in there until it's Windows smart phones and tablet computer sales are good enough to sustain Nokia however if Nokia Windows smart phones do not sell well then microsoft will buy Nokia and like apple be an OEM software company. but it will loose most of it's smart phone partners.

This is something I would use, but sadly it most likely will never happen.
35. luxzy801 (Posts: 136; Member since: 16 Jun 2010)
IMO, I like the TK Victory concept better. Maybe its because im a hardware QWERTY fan.
36. a_tumiwa (Posts: 280; Member since: 16 Mar 2012)
good concept, but hey.... where is the qwerty keyboard?

Ok this one is beautifull berry, almost all is screen. Must be very expensive if this is real, but windows phone 8, hmm...
