>who the fuck uses blackberry
>looking at a phone from 2008
I think what you wanted to say is that it looks different than [small tablet disguised as a phone of various brands].
im glad someone likes the classic as much as I do
If you get a boner from apple-style design shit get out. A real man gets boners from good, useful, practical designs.
Not gay enough.
This was probably the last good htc device
Now I have a craving for ice lollies in winter. Thanks
N-no I mean popscicles! Popsicles and guns and freedom!
I'd be happy to.

Every other benefit could be had better in an Dell Latitude 6400.
it's a square screen! you don't fucking need to rotate it, you fat mongol!
Guys, stop this bullshit.
I use a BlackBerry myself but I can understand why people arent willing to spend that amount of money for the specs. I mean, the Passport retails for $600+. For that amount of money the hardware specs simply are shit.
Theres no point in arguing that, especially when other people wants more power to run games or video. We dont need this sort of shit. I am fine with office applications and certain apps, no need for every multi media app in existence since I use the phone mostly for working anyway, which is what its made for.
Complaining that it doesnt excel with multi media is retarded, but so is acting like no one should need more power. There are different types of customers and the majority simply doesnt need what BlackBerrys or BB10 offer. And thats fine.
People are stuck in the past. They remeber blackberry being shit for half a decade an suddenly think that they can't ever be good again.
The current direction they take is pretty smart, and BB10 arguably the best OS on the market right now. I would be happy if they start to gain ground again. Fuck android and their unimaginative copy cat devices.
New Blackberry OS:
>Based on glorious QNX
>Can run Android apps
>Efficient use of resources
>Based on freedom-respecting LiGnux + shit-tier Java
>Can't run Blackberry OS apps
>Burns through resources like a coal train
>Can run Android apps
Is this true? Because I've been looking at getting a blackberry as my next phone when my iPhone 5c shits itself. What's kept me from blackberry is that i thought it wasn't compatible with anything.
Yeah it's true, we trialled it at work.
The unspoken problem is that BB screens are small and square and Android screens tend to be large and very rectangular. App developers being faggots hardly any apps handle this resize with any elegance.
Until recently you had to download the APK file. But according to what I heard the Passport has a pre installed Amazon store which makes getting your hands on APKs way easier.
To be fair, I wouldnt expect all of them to work. I mean, I have been using a Q10 for over a year now and not encountered a single app that didnt work properly. But I am not using that many to be honest.
>tiny 1x1 screens that are retarded, small, and hard to use
>shit specs for price, bad camera
The funny thing is I supoort a hybrid fleet of iOS and Blackberry phones and all anyone does is send simple emails. For all Blackberry goes on about 'productivity' no one actually works from their phone.
Mah nigga. I'd sell the wife and kids before I'd get rid of mine.
What in the FUCK are you doing on a blackberry piece of shit that you can't do on an iphone or even a fucking android phone? As this anon said>>45678127
99 percent of people just send emails and MAYBE some spreadsheets or shit occasionally.
I'm not even a fan of Thinkpads. This fucking thing, however.
Synthesizers turn me on
The turbo pad is exactly the same as a standard duo pad, with a different inlay. The Genesis one is kind of cool, it's the traditional genny six button, but is about 15-20% smaller. Great feeling little pad.
>Is this true?
Yes. since way over a year…
However theres a catch: full botnet apps that call into all kinds of google services wont work, but other than that, you are good. Personally I have yet to encounter an app that does not work. and with 10.3 the amazon appstore becomes official for BB, so its getting even better.
So essentially you can access/install
>the various russion stores
>Backberry world of course
>google play (with the snap client)
>and any .apk you bother to find on the wildwildweb
And then there is the iOS compat layer… I'd love to see that one released.
>What in the FUCK are you doing on a blackberry piece of shit that you can't do on an iphone or even a fucking android phone?
Type on physical keys
run blackberry applications
>type on muh physical keys
I'm typing on virtual keys and I can quite nearly type just as fast as I did on my htc fuze. Furthermore the amount of screen size I get is so much better. Slide out keyboards are acceptable I suppose but still bulky, blackberry style keyboards today are fucking archaic and moronic.
>muh blackberry apps
Nice job being a fucking dumbass. What are you doing with those apps that android or ios can't do?
Nigga my body fat is under 15% (can't tell exactly since the cheapass electric thing is wildly inaccurate under that giving me numbers from 2 [I know from looking I'm nowhere near 2] to 12 and I don't care enough for water displacement test), I aint fat by anyones definition. I used to be a physical keyboard on phones fanatic until I used messagease.
Switching to colemak on an ergodox also made me care less about keyboards on phones since nothing would come close to even resembling my board except the board itself with usb otg.
8pen was awful, even after spending time with it. Messagease is actually useable, moreso than any of the swipe style (and I used four separate swipe style boards, swype, swiftkey, go, and flesky for an extended time each) boards IMO.
You asked what I can do on my blackberry that you cant on your iphone. I gave you a 100% true answer.
The discussion as of what one prefers, is a matter of preferences, and that is hard to win for any side.
Oh, you already started you post with "idiot", so I win by default anyways.
I always thought that a space grey macbook would look really nice.
This concept was posted a while ago on macrumours
that looks so good
I hate on applefags in every thread but I secretly fantasize about macbooks and I'm not even kidding
the only consolation is that it probably doesn't look that good in reality and usability > faggy good looks
How are macs worse for userbility?
I love Mac OS, unless you game then they are a great option.
Also i can understand you fantasising about macs.
Look at this and try not to get a boner:
i would imagine this is a correct answer.
>Rocking my z10 for almost two years now
>Haven't even thought about getting a new phone
>Red Passport gets annouced
>I want that
bb users post yfw the red passport was annouced
Holy shit I remember when this was released and that screen seemed huge at the time (4.3" wasn't it?), and now here we are, in a world where 5" is considered standard-sized for a smartphone screen.
You physical keyboard people are such fucking dinosaurs. I get that you don't like tap-tapping away at a shitty little onscreen iPhone keyboard. Get Swype, or one of the dozen other keyboard replacements. This post took me well under a minute, and I've only had to pick my thumb up once per word. Stop being so senile
There is a vehicle where I work with wheels like that and I have literally gotten a weird mesmerized boner from it on multiple occasions.
never knew what they were called thanks for the info
thinking about cable management gets me all sweaty
too bad that these images are shitty and oversized
