The decisions and outcome of what happen to Blackberry has been so well covered that it has become an example of what NOT to do as a corporate company (it'll probably be mentioned in business classes, if it already hasn't)
Even thought the design looks solid, I don't think this will fly, only because when holding the phone, there's extra manipulation required just to be able to type. Even though with today's larger screen are expected to be used using two hands, users still like to be able to fulfil some tasks one handed. This devices doesn't seem to work on that type of model.
IMHO...too little too late...Blackberry had it shoot to make a combat, and the entire community was hoping for it,but it was an epic fail for various reasons (the major one being lack of App support, which Windows is still struggling with, althought with Windows 10 things I hope should improve)
What does the community think?
