Thanks to reader Jessica R for pointing this out to me.
Blackberry has announced their new Q20, which will feature a physical QWERTY keyboard. This really isn’t travel news, but I was surprised at how many folks viewed my recent post on “Blackberry-like” keyboards for my iPhone.
I didn’t end up buying one of the keyboards, but Blackberry sure is tempting me with this. The device is supposed to have a 3.5 inch screen which is bigger than previous keyboard Blackberrys but smaller than my iPhone. I’m okay with my iPhone but we’re not in love. Call it a marriage of convenience.
The Q20 isn’t scheduled to be released until later in 2014. For all I know Blackberry could be vapor by then (they’re not exactly knocking the cover off the ball with new products lately).
The announcement is certainly something of a tease because I can’t find photos of the design anywhere. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see…..
