At least 900 one la. You look at passport .

Anyways BlackBerry is not looking to beat iphone. They are in their own league for enterprise users.
Truee la. But I'm just sayin, maybe they should start to consider catering to a wider range of customer type? The fact that Android have been starting to develop its security (cant remember.. issit Andoid Knox or something) it's starting to show that a single phone can be used for Enterprise and Personal usage too. I'm not sure bout apple, but I sure they have something of that sort too.

I think in BB's case, wouldn't it be better to "kill two birds with one stone"?

It's not a decade ago where I believe people understand that work and play has a different phone. Now they want it in one device.

I think the boss lagi suka hahaa!! When the worker on a family event, they will still get a BBM asking about where did he save the document file the boss asked to proof read about a week ago.

Am quite interested in the Note 5 keyboard. But not yet seen in singapore. Some online reviews have been critical. Have to test personally. Likely a bit iffy, as the keys are tapping on the screen. Also no backlight
That's good you are showing some intrest in the keyboard for samsung.

But personally for me, in my honest opinion, I find it quite ugly. Well fair enough that's just the look of it. Not fair because im not judging it on it practicality. If it's true it touches the screen instead of actually connecting to the phone via microusb port to key in the keystrokes, im not so sure how responsive or 'satisfying' to actually type on the keyboard.

I still think the functionality and design of the blackberry keyboards (passport not sure haven't try, looks like it would be a pain to type with) is still the best hands down.


... which is why the venice NEEDS to be released real soon bahaha.

It's a crappy name. Some how, I always think about removing the 'i' for a 'e'.

CEO confirmed the name. Rather sad when he tries to demo the device, he clearly does not even know how to use the phone.

It says a lot about this person. Not expecting a techie but you are suppose to know your product!

Well, at least you know john swears by his blackberries and probably uses them solely abs extensively in his personal and work life, or else he would have known how to work an android phone. There of course also an outside chance that he is an IOS user. :p

It does not matter he likes or uses blackberry, apple or android. I know purists will hate this idea. But as a CEO, you need to know your product at your finger tips. And what more at a media event with international press and presumably, a demo... screwups can happen in demos but it should be a 'user driven error' la.
