BlackBerry today announced the Q20, its first phone to combine BlackBerry 10 software with the trackpad, menu & back buttons, and QWERTY keyboard of its more popular older devices. The Q20 will carry over the popular keyboard design from the Q10, but will increase the screen size to 3.5 inches, and include a larger battery. Send and end keys are also included next to the menu and back keys. New BlackBerry CEO John Chen described the phone as a reaction to consistent customer feedback that "the hard buttons and trackpad are an essential part of the BlackBerry QWERTY experience." Few other details were released. The phone is planned to be available in the second half of 2014.

I despise trackballs

The stupid thing always gets stuck.....I was so happy when they got rid of it.

But if some people like it I guess I don't have to buy a phone with one.....that's one benefit of the Blackberry brand, they give you options, keyboard, no keyboard, trackball, no trackball....whatever you want....they do it your way rather than trying to force you to do it theirs like every other cell phone manufacturer.

This would happen after I've just upgraded to the Q10. Lol

I will be getting it when it drops, though!

BlackBerry honey I'm coming home!
This device should bring some of the previous. Blackberry users back. As a current q10 user, I am excited.

Why BB makes us wait until the 2nd half of 2014 is beyond me. What to improve market share and stop the bleeding, get these devices out soone...
