    That being said. The new feature video by blackberry for the PRIV looked totally awesome! It is without a shadow of a doubt, one sexy looking phone.

    I will be glad when this device is finally out and reviewed. I doubt it will meet sales expectations but I hope I am wrong. Personally I think the launch of this device, and the sales pitch of going to android has been a royal screw-up. The device itself will fit into the thousands of android devices already there and that’s it. BlackBerry ‘s poor record at bringing confidence to and listening to its consumers will be it’s downfall. All said, the move to Android is a smart one. Maybe a little late, but smart. BlackBerry does need to market it’s products better but we have been telling them this for years. While I appreciate Chen’s savy in turning a company around, I find his lack of passion for his product and portraying confidence and commitment is apparent. BlackBerry now needs a salesman like never before.

    Great upstream as always……. But since watching it. It really has made me question if I really do want the priv. All my viewing content is done on my ipad. I find even my partners i6 plus too small really to enjoy viewing films or programs and books. If you take that away from the priv and the edge functionality, what does it leave that my passport isn’t up to. I love the ease and flow on bb10 and I don’t think I will get that on Android.
