BlackBerry Dev Alpha C devices with QWERTY keyboard to be distributed after January 30th announcement


  • Ronell

    Awesome… I think it was key to seperate the keyboard and qwerty versions. RIM lost the market to touch screen so It would make sense to take some back first before they start selling the QWERTY phones.

    • REDRUM

      I’m most excited about the Blackberry HUB. All messages from all kinds of apps in one place seems really convenient. It will save a lot of hassle (RIP RIM jokes aside :))

      I thought I was a troll but “twosee” raise the bar!

    • Just sayin

      Twosee needs a girlfriend

  • Alibaba

    Article states “Secure network” is something we will have to see as BB10 will use Activesync and pop/imap platform like playbook so no compression or security unless RIM decided to pass through their existing network that BIS goes through?


    The same articles over and over and over…god. Everyone will be sick of blackberry even before these pieces of crap come out!

    • Sgt.Romanov

      Actually were sick of you and Twosee’s childish comments

      Learn to approach women and talk to them normally. Hounding them for dates comes across as desparate. That’s not appealing to them.

    The Panda phone. I wonder how the black-on-white colour scheme will do. I don’t recall any other phone trying that colour combo before, so it’s hard to tell if it will succeed or not. We’ll see.

  • Jeeby

    I am hoping that among the entire line-up of BB10 devices, there will be a Torch-like touchscreen/QWERTY combo.

    • Alex

      I second that. I rather fond of the slider-style Torch. I know it’s not the most popular due to its relative heftiness and thickness that is inherent in the slider design, but it’s nice to have the larger screen with the ability to use a physical keyboard when you need it.

  • Paid Schill

    Honestly, the constant coverage of BB10 ‘news’ draws your journalistic objectivity into question. At least admit this is paid schilling!

    I wood like to see if blackberry has what I want and need wants are Skype Netflix games and music and videos what I need is email instant messaging good camera hop blackberry can address this we will just have to see hop blackberry makes a come back

    • hoo dat

      The Skype icon appeared on the Dev Alpha units after the latest update, so it’s on its way, but still no word on Netflix. I don’t use either service but I used to use Netflix Canada up until the summer of last year, the selection sucked. Even Netflix US is not worth the price of admission as far as I’m concerned, but each to their own, I guess.


    Hey look, Twosee figured out copy and paste.

    RIM at $15.70.

  • Dave

    QWERTY-equipped phone and Farts apps!

    Welcomes to 1993 RIM!

  • Paul

    RIM stock climbing…apple stock sinking. I think some people are far more excited about Waterloo right now vs Cupertino

  • Matt Polkiewicz

    Hopefully the keyboard is amazing. Once released, this will be one of the only high-end devices with a keyboard on the market
