The device looks nice but are there still people who would choose a QWERTY over fully touchscreen devices??

I work with a bunch of people who prefer the keyboard.

@Crazay that is interesting, so there is still some hope left for the company. I think people would buy QWERTY devices if they offer it with competitive specs at affordable price...

As a handset manufacturer, I would say they have little to no hope to be completely and brutally honest unless MAYBE they overhauled the OS again or started putting Android on their units.
BB10 sucks.

I hate it and the people who like QWERTY and were on BB10 on brand new phones asked to go back to their old curves and Bolds within a month. It's just not intuitive enough for some of the older school people.

To be honest, I don't think there are as many QWERTY users as they think there are, a slice of them have already converted, and as for buying unlocked, nobody is going to pay $599-$699 for that when they can get a better phone for the same price.

They get an A+ for effort, but will get an F when it comes to sales.

Nail in RIMs coffin, specs are pretty good but that handset design is so 10 years ago.
