BlackBerry Passport leaked hands-on reveal a talented keypad

If you still think that BlackBerry's next high profile smartphone is some elaborate marketing stunt, better wake up, smell the coffee, and watch this video. Courtesy of Carphone Warehouse, we're getting a second-hand look at how the BlackBerry Passport would look and feel like in the real world. Aside from looking huge and awkward, it seems that the Passport is quite equipped to accomplish what BlackBerry is setting it out to do, to be a no-nonsense business-minded mobile device.

Minuum for Android Wear; a useful smartwatch keyboard

Minuum for Android Wear; a useful smartwatch keyboard

When we last saw Minuum talking Android Wear, their concept was a spectacular rendering of how the round face of a Moto 360 could make typing on the tiny screen easier. Sadly, we quickly learned that concept would never work, but a new video released by the company holds promise. This time, concept gives way to reality.

Fleksy Messenger now available for the Samsung Gear 2

Since the smartwatch came to pass, the question has remained: how can we type on that thing? A small screen doesn’t lend itself to quick thumbs, and with such small keys, how would we get by? Fleksy has an answer, and from the looks of it — a pretty good one.

BlackBerry Kopi proves its existence on eBay

BlackBerry Kopi proves its existence on eBay

Thought BlackBerry was gone? Thought physical QWERTY keyboards have gone the way of the Dodo? Perhaps many thought so too, but BlackBerry clearly doesn't think so, and apparently neither does someone on eBay. A used BlackBerry Kopi, flaunting its glorious hardware keys, is up for bidding on eBay, which is, of course, suspicious considering the device has never been announced.

BlackBerry 9720 caught in wild as BB7 gasps its last

BlackBerry 9720 caught in wild as BB7 gasps its last

Thorsten Heins promised one more BlackBerry 7 device this year and it looks like this is it, the freshly-leaked BlackBerry 9720. Intended to retain BlackBerry's footprint in the budget market, not to mention placating enterprise users not yet ready to upgrade to BlackBerry 10 infrastructure, the handset spotted by ThaiBBClub is a Curve-scale QWERTY phone, smaller than the BlackBerry Q10.

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry Q5 Review

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and you're out? Read on for the SlashGear review.

The BlackBerry Q5 was announced today, and it features a lot of what the Q10 has, including the touchscreen mixed with the physical keyboard, but it'll be catered towards emerging markets around the world.

Nokia Asha 210 brings the QWERTY with a dedicated WhatsApp key

Nokia Asha 210 brings the QWERTY with a dedicated WhatsApp key

Nokia has a new QWERTY phone today, and as we suspected it slots into the company's cheaper Asha line, rather than being the keyboard-equipped Lumia many have been hoping for. The Asha 210 packs full-QWERTY into a candybar form-factor, but also includes a dedicated WhatsApp shortcut key, with free lifetime service on the cross-platform messaging app for anyone who buys the single- or dual-SIM versions of the phone.

Nokia teases new QWERTY phone (but don’t expect a keyboard Lumia)

Nokia teases new QWERTY phone (but don’t expect a keyboard Lumia)

Nokia has teased a new QWERTY device, using the company's current primary-color scheme, though the phone seems unlikely to be the much-anticipated keyboard-equipped Lumia Windows Phone. Only a tiny glimpse of the handset - which will be officially revealed on Wednesday - has been shown so far, but Nokia has said that Mobile Phones technology marketing director Neil Broadley will be manning the Q&A session, implying that we're looking at a new Asha device, not a true smartphone.
