Concept design for BlackBerry 10 model shows Bold-esque QWERTY keyboard
posted by Alan F. / Jun 24, 2012, 1:16 PM
The bottom of the phone is tapered in a little to make the device easier to hold and the handset is thin keeping with the recent trend toward skinny smartphones. The designer of the phone, John Anastasiadis, says that the concept is realistic in that it could be released right now. The latest speculation has the first BlackBerry 10 model being the BlackBerry Colt 2. While a BB10 model with a physical QWERTY is being developed, according to RIM CEO Thurston Heins, the first model is expected to feature only a virtual QWERTY keyboard. source: Crackberry

Doesn't look bad but I agree with above. Slide out keyboards with larger displays are better. They aren't going to dial numbers in your pockets, slide out keyboards have bigger and more spaced out layouts, bigger more usable screens, etc. I appreciate that rim is trying to keep to their traditions but it's really hurting them in the end.

Agree. If they do release another phone with this design again, they deserve to bankrupt. They simply refuse to learn that customers don't give a sh*t about their company's tradition, what they want is value for price, mostly by features such as does found on the qwerty Droid series: Big screen, fast processors, big, high-quality slide-out keyboards and a competent OS. Blackberry models are exactly the opposite, but they charge sky high anyway.
