Verizon Wireless Release

What is Verizon waiting for? Does anybody know ? Two other major carriers have released this phone. One in black, No Big Deal. Same phone. I can purchase it on Amazon or Best Buy but I don’t want to. Only because, I’m hoping Verizon is working with BB and TCL on a Version like was released in India? One can only hope!

Just like sprint itself

There have CLEARLY been nay-sayers going on about how blackberry is out of the market, but they keep making good phones like this and more people are buying them. Right? Right?

Firewall Question

I asked this on Verizon's site but no replies. Maybe someone here knows.

So DTEK firewall's 3rd party apps. What about core apps? If not, maybe marshmallow v.6 release? Can one block contacts for example?

This phone will probably never get the respect it deserves

And what a shame. It deserves it's place just like the S7 and G5. None of those devices are perfect. Give me the keyboard and security of the Blackberry, the multi-tasking and stylus integration of the Note 5, and the flat out innovation of the G5. THAT would be the perfect device, something we could truly call a no compromises flagship.

Edit: and kick Android's sorry broken platform to the curb in favor of HP's Windows 10 awesomeness. THAT is a device we can only fantasize about.

Did you guys review this device?

If not, can you do one?

Edit: Never mind. I found the review. I guess I should have looked first, lol.

Took them too long for sprint

It took them way too long for Sprint that I ended up buying a moto x pure. I couldn't be happier now but sorry BB you took too long

Maybe its a Renn Faire thing..

But at Renn Faire you learn terms such as privy, aka bathroom. They are often shortened to the word "priv".
I am not saying that is in anyway a reflection of this phone.. I am only saying that I am never going to be able to talk about this phone without making that connection.

Harsh and Bias

Quite a harsh review, but you were able to cough up a couple of complements(backhanded of course). Are you familiar with BB10 OS. It has a full swipe UI. Maybe that's why they used it with the productivity tab, not because they copied it from Samsung as you infer. Give it a break and put your negativity aside and evaluate the phone on merit and not your attempt to follow mainstream media with a death march against Blackberry... I am hopeful that your full review will be less bias and more objective like the one you are capable of producing.

Wondering?

I'm wondering if you have the option of using swype, or provided screen based kb instead of the regular slider kb?

$700?

This phone is DOA. That's too bad because a $499 price point could have put Blackberry back on the map.

Interesting

Too bad they refused to integrate Android on the Playbook.

Called it

When I said several months ago that if Blackberry were to survive they need to push out an Android phone, people thought I was mad. Nailed it.

And here we all were

counting Blackberry out. But if someone is going to make a flagship device with with a slide-out Blackberry keyboard, you can count me interested. Where was this device 3 years ago?

Time to say goodbye

They need to play this outside their HQ on a massive megaphone. Sell your patients and run - or go the way IBM went.
