F(x)tec Pro 1 QWERTY slider phone misses its July shipping date

F(x)tec Pro 1 QWERTY slider phone misses its July shipping date

Making smartphones is difficult even for big companies like RED. How much more difficult it is, then, for startups who've had very little if almost no industry clout. And yet those are the things dreams are made of and for F(x)tec, a small delay of a few months isn't going to keep them down. That is indeed the current status of its inaugural phone, the F(x)tec Pro 1, whose design and functions will pull at techies' heartstrings, provided it actually ships at all.

Livermorium to make a slider phone after failing at a Moto Mod

Some dreams live, some dreams die. And some dreams get killed off when supposed investors and supporter pull the rug from under them.

Good thing, then, that sliders are making a comeback.

BlackBerry KEY2 LE gets a date

BlackBerry KEY2 LE gets a date

Samsung’s early launch of the Galaxy Note 9 means only one thing. We only have a little over two weeks to get a breather before we’re inundated by even more new products. IFA 2018 is just around the corner and with it comes new smartphones to choose from. If you’re the type who prefers to see and feel the keys on your phone, however, choice is pretty limited. Fortunately, TCL and BlackBerry are likely to drop another one before this month is over.

BlackBerry KEYone successor “Athena” renders leak out

BlackBerry KEYone successor “Athena” renders leak out

If you thought that BlackBerry, technically TCL, was done with QWERTY phones, then this latest leak might prove you wrong. Provided it’s accurate, of course. Renders of what is allegedly called the BlackBerry “Athena” have just popped up, suggesting that the phone maker is going to give the classic BlackBerry feature one more try, despite mediocre, though not exactly bad, market performance. It does seem, however, that the BlackBerry “KEYtwo” will at least be adopting modern smartphone trends while fortunately keeping one other classic feature.

Moto Mod with slider QWERTY keyboard coming to Indiegogo

Moto Mod with slider QWERTY keyboard coming to Indiegogo

Smartphones with physical QWERTY keyboards aren't unheard of but aren't exactly many. Even fewer are those with keyboards that slide out. And even rarer are those that slide out horizontally in a landscape orientation. That kind of form factor hasn't been seen since perhaps the Motorola DROID 4, but soon that might appear again, coincidentally in another Motorola smartphone. No, Motorola isn't making a new QWERTY slider. But thanks to its Moto Mods, someone else can make that happen. If, however, the price, or rather the funding, is right.

iPad Pro keyboard case brings QWERTY to big Apple tablet

This morning Apple revealed the iPad Pro, and along with it, a keyboard case that folds over its front. This device has a physical keyboard that's very thin, able to fold out and hold the iPad Pro up as it sits down on the surface of your desk, flat. Apple suggests that this keyboard is made with a "woven fabric" to create the structure of its keys, and that it'll work with the iPad Pro's "Smart Connector."

BlackBerry Classic gets detailed in spec and photos leak

BlackBerry Classic gets detailed in spec and photos leak

With the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry "Prestige" Porsche Design P'9983, and the new BlackBerry Blend software, most of the company's roadmap for the last quarter of 2014 have come to pass. All except one. The BlackBerry Classic, the Q20 in previous literature, is still something fans are eagerly waiting for before they call this year done. While that day might be coming soon, we will have to settle for unofficial information, like this latest batch of features and images that paint an almost complete picture of the smartphone.

BlackBerry Classic “Q20” gets another set of photo leaks

BlackBerry really knows how to keep its "BlackBerry Loyal" crowd on the edge of their seats.

Luckily, we have here some new photos to whet their appetites, this time with the more traditional BlackBerry Classic, a.k.a. the Q20, in sight.

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.
