That's really good for blackberry. It was really, really stupid of them to just stand by while there market in the business industry was being taken over by the competitors. The one thing I don't get is why they are charging an extra 50 dollars (250 vs 200) for this phone. I guess they think that a qwerty keyboard is worth a premium
Yeah charging extra for the keyboard doesn't make sense. But this is a good sign at least in the UK for blackberry. It would be nice to see them make a big comeback in the us so that way there I'd more competition. Not surprised by this news considering many blackberry faithful held on to their older bb despite the awesome competition solely for that good ol keyboard
I've kinda noticed something lately which is a bunch of companies that haven't really done anything lately and failing are dusting themselves off and getting on the right track again. Maybe the economy is picked up, good job Blackberry.
My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
I figured the keyboard version would sell better. Even in BB's own history they haven't had the greatest touch experience while almost everyone loved the keyboard devices. For business they should also be more durable with much fewer breaks than an all screen phone, possibly fewer typing mistakes, easier to use in different climates (like wearing gloves in the cold).
I wonder what % of buyers were average consumers and not purchasing for business.
Way to go BlackBerry. I'm to read they are doing well. I hope they can keep this up and keep putting out a quality handset.
