    We demand Blackberry passport 2

    All BlackBerry has to do to is update BlackBerry 10 just enough for it’s existing apps (especially the browser) to work and continuously update just BlackBerry 10 and forget about 3rd party apps and Android sideloading or Amazon app stores. BlackBerry 10, on it’s own, has everything a computer needs, without the BS.

    Just keep making BlackBerry 10 a powerful mobile computing OS free of anything unrelated to productivity except your own multimedia suite that you already own as part of BB10. You can do everything in a working browser (just like Balsillie said nearly a decade ago).

    BlackBerry OS alone has every fun and business thing covered, in the OS itself. Doesn’t even need an app store. Just needs mobile computing.

    It already has a bunch of fun apps built in, along with a full multimedia app suite. Put your own friggin’ music on your own micro SD card. You DO NOT NEED like over 90% of the apps on your friggin phone right now and probably dont even use over half of those.

    BlackBerry is sitting on what that Bank of America dude (among others) want(s). He needs to upgrade his friggin 9900.

    People are using BlackBerry 10 right now, as it is. As if BlackBerry can’t upgrade BB10 enough to keep it useful. C’mon now, something else is going on here.

    Some company called Unihertz literally took all the advice BlackBerry fans were trying to tell you for almost five years now – BUILD AN ANDROID PASSPORT. So, what happens? Some kickstarter or indigogo fundraising thing happened and we now have this butt-ugly Unihertz Titan in existence that stole most of the Passport design / form factor and bastardized it. They literally stole your thunder with a Passport look-a-like brick thing. Seriously? What’s happening here? Can this all be real? Was this demise of secure BlackBerry hardware a planned event in order to keep it’s security features out of the hands of nefarious consumers, or did the inventor of the smartphone just say "f#ck it" and give up? I don’t get it.

    I’ve always wondered why BlackBerry hasn’t licensed out all their physical keyboard tech (specifically slider keyboards with mechanism and touch pad capable) to a company like Samsung for the Note series. Having a Note with a BlackBerry slider PKB and the S-Pen would be an absolute dream come true.

    At the same time, license out the security too. Like they have for Bullit Group and Punkt. I know Samsung had BlackBerry’s help with Knox, but it’s still not the same as BlackBerry Secure.

    I m your fans

    Make a new phone with dual screen, one on the front with physical keyboard and on the back is a bezel less with superb quality. So it only need one camera set up.

    I still love BlackBerry, just a little more harshly now, more like "tough love" because I’m sick of all this nonsense. A sit down with the Bank of America raised the share price a little, but barely, and it was a very BlackBerry friendly chat. BlackBerry always saying we’re doing this, acquiring that, selling whatever to whomever – but these shares remain essentially stagnant. It’s strange.

    Bring back the bb classic

    I have been using BlackBerry smartphones since 2008. I currently own the KEY2 and the Evolve among other BlackBerry 10 devices. Optiemus Infracom was probably the worst licensee in the history licensees, but the Evolve is very nice and the X variety would have been wonderful if not for Optiemus Infracom being a mickey mouse company.

    I used to go to that ‘crackberry’ site for the forum community and news. Then, when the KEY2 launched (or KEYone launched) BlackBerry Mobile made that the ‘official site’ for BlackBerry Mobile users. Terrible idea.

    The ‘crackberry’ website is full of passive aggressive and downright rude and sarcastic "trusted members" lurking around waiting to reverse troll anybody they want. It’s the most negative place for a BlackBerry Smartphone fan to visit, new or old. Full of crusty "trusted members" – who more often than not, if not ALWAYS, suggest users buy other devices instead of being supportive of their original desire to choose a BlackBerry. It’s unbelievable to me that BlackBerry Ltd / BlackBerry Mobile allow for this nonsense. How does a site dedicated to BlackBerry NOT suggest BlackBerry smartphones when a possible new user shows up with questions? It’s disgusting. The site has the name of one of the most horrible street drugs know to man, called crack. I get why, BlackBerry is addictive, but really? There’s nothing good about being associated with crack.

    What I decided to do, as a result, and after spending thousands of dollars on BlackBerry devices over the years (you’re welcome, but you don’t care at all), was to simply quit supporting this nonsense.

    Nothing but negativity regarding a possible KEY3 has helped me make a big decision. I moved to the Note 10+ now. That’s the device I am using all the time for everything, just like I used to do with BlackBerry hardware.

    I will buy a KEY3 (if certain features are present and because physical keyboard), if one arrives. So, instead of waiting around and checking what I now call ‘CRAPberry.com’ for anything positive regarding BlackBerry device releases, I have moved completely off the hardware part of the platform and may stay here.

    Luckily, I subscribe to and use the BlackBerry Hub+ Services and apps, side-loaded the BlackBerry Keyboard, and have a water and dust resistant all in one computing device with an S-Pen (believe me, it’s useful). Oh, wireless charging and an entire ecosystem of Galaxy branded accessories to build upon the Samsung DeX system (BlackBerry Blend anybody?).

    I really hope John Chen was serious in his chat with the Bank of America guy regarding building his own BlackBerry’s again. That would be wonderful. But, he was probably not serious at all.

    As a friend of an investor and with my own interests in BlackBerry’s success, I must say, you guys are slow going when it comes to increasing that share price. What gives? How can QNX be in over 150 million cars plus, as well as used in countless systems requiring embedded QNX software, yet have the shares remain where they’ve been for years now. Trust me, I WATCH you.
