Would you buy a BlackBerry smartphone if it looked like this?
Although a lot of people pronounce BlackBerry dead, the struggling Canadian manufacturer is still alive and kicking, as the company succeeded in cutting down the losses during the last financial quarter. It's more than clear, however, that the company will have to release some crowd-pleasing smartphones if it wants to survive in the long term. Not that current BlackBerry devices have hideous design, but in order to woo consumers, the Canadians will need to craft a device with a big amount of "oomph". The beautiful BlackBerry Coupe, a fan-made concept, certainly packs all the traits of such a device.

Created by CrackBerry member Ziro1, the concept shows both a full touchscreen and a keyboard-equipped BlackBerry smartphone. The curves on the top and the bottom of the conceptual handset surely bring back memories of the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, which got released back in 2011. The big speaker at the bottom is present on both conceptual images, while the overall exterior resembles the one of a BlackBerry Z30. Oh, and look at those thin bezels!

It's more than clear that the BlackBerry Coupe will forever remain a concept. Nevertheless, if BlackBerry makes such a device one day, it may win back a great portion of its user base.

So, would you consider getting a BlackBerry if it looked like this – yay or nay? Share your thoughts below!
