New model?

 

Does anyone know if there are plans for a new BB Torch (or other) model with a slide out keyboard and  a larger than 3.2 inch screen?

Re: New model?

BlackBerry has not announced any 'torch-like" coming device.

 

And anything else you read is rumors.

Re: New model?

too bad that they haven't announced anything?

 

Doesn't mean they won't.

Re: New model?

I'm hoping/waiting for a bigger screen. 3.2 inches is too small!

Re: New model?

The new Z10 and Z30 are absolutely awesome screens.

I don't need a slide-out screen. The virtual keyboard is incomparable to other touchscreen keyboards. These things know what I am going to type before I do... and that is not exaggerated. Many users will tell you that.

Re: New model?

Well, I do need a slide out keyboard...and btw I hate these virtual keyboards which assume they know what I might want to write...but don't. :smileywink:

Admit it, you have not used a BlackBerry10 virtual keyboard, have you?

I don't mean two minutes testing one, I mean using it.

 

Because, if you have, you wouldn't be saying that.

Re: New model?

No, but I have tried even better virtual keyboards than the BB10...and no matter what you say, they are for various reasons not for me.

No, you haven't tried a better virtual keyboard than on the Z10 or Z30, I can assure you have not.  :smileywink:
