    Default Blackberry Priv- A touchscreen Blackberry Phone with sliding keyboard

    Touchscreen is one of the best innovation phones have today but we cannot deny how annoying it is to type with a touchscreen keyboard specially if you have fat fingers. Blackberry makes a comeback and now they were better than ever because they have a mobile phone that runs under Android OS but what makes it different from most Android phones is the fact it has a sliding keyboard that you can hide. Now you have the best of 2 worlds:



    It is Modern yet it is something that gives you a feeling of Nostalgia. Do you think this phone will bring back Blackberry to the map?

    OMG I'm in love, it was love at first sight!

    Thank you so much for sharing this, it's really what I was looking for and it even brings Adroid Lolipop. No matter what I got to have this phone!

    What's the price of this beauty?

    Many people said blackberry is dead and keypads are dead but I think Priv is the beginning of a comeback. Blackberry is going to rise like a phoenix. Yes they were killed by the Iphones but now it looks better than ever.

    Reborn from it's ashes, nice euphemism. Yeah the blackberry users were ditching it for iPhones, I remember now all my friends were using blackberry's but suddenly we are all using iPhones, and it became the raining phone.

    I wonder if there will be new games that can be controlled by the keypads. All Android games are touchscreen based so it would be interesting if some app creators can take advantage of the keypad. This Smart Phone also have a touch screen keyboard that is optional.

    Yes you are right.

    This phone is really appealing. And it's camera it's just the confirmation that it'll be a success. People wont have any excuse to tell that this phone is bad! Maybe the sliding keyboard will be the weak point in this new smartphone... At least in the past the main problems related to this kind of phones was the sliding keyboard! That's the reason why this idea was abandoned.

    Although we have time knowing most specifications of the new BlackBerry Priv, although there were several details that were still unknown. Therefore, after the phone has gone on sale today in several countries including the United States, Canada and Britain we can finish complete its specification sheet and get an idea of what is offered to us.

    This is a very important device for the Canadian company, because as we said once could be one of their last opportunities in the smartphone market. Therefore, the analysis published baked coinciding with its launch also help us to get an idea about how much has been successful with its new BlackBerry mobile.

    I like the sliding keyboard because we were able to hide it, in times we don't need them. Also typing with a touch screen is not really that fun. I always end up having a typo with the touch screen. This one also have a touch screen keyboard that is optional but I guess it's purposes is to make it usable for a friend who wanted to borrow it but can't use the keypads.

    It runs under Android so I guess many app in the appstore will be available for it.

    You are right, this is their last opportunity to survive in the mobile market. That is why they have decided to try this time with the most popular OS, Android. May be this will be a life saver for them. But the BlackBerry management is adamant that if they cannot see good sales figures this time, they are going to close the business for ever.

    BlackBerry has always been one of my favorite companies of all times. I am a big fan of their QWERTY key board which was convenient to handle. Even touch screen keypads are not so user friendly. As @Cashewfruit_wine has rightly pointed out touchscreen keypads are more prone to errors while typing.

    I use to be fascinated with touchscreen keyboards but after experiencing a lot of blunders with it due to me having fat fingers, I got sick of it. You can also add the annoyance of auto-correct feature that suggest a lot of words that you won't be needing because you are not typing in English.

    Okay, my mum just got this phone to day and I can say it is awesome, it didn't come with marshmallow and we haven't seen the option to upgrade it yet, but all in all, it is a sleek looking phone and it isn't really popular yet, but when people know about it, I bet it will be competing with the iPhone and Samsung, because Nigeria holds a lot of blackberry fans.
