Samsung and Apple might have a lot of data that pin points the exact number of minutes, when a user actually has a full keyboard displaying on their phones, and if the number were appealing then, either of the firms would have already push out a model to meet the requirements of this market segment. I don't feel that BlackBerry will be able to make huge sales because of a physical keyboard.

However, it would be nice for consumers if a third major player makes a comeback or a new player enters the mobile phone market in a big way.

From what I read elsewhere, it has an 8MP back camera, and 16GB storage. Since you link to Blackberry's page for this, you will note the specs. Surprised you didn't before you wrote the article.
