TCL teases the next keyboard BlackBerry

by Volker Weber

That is a nice video, but there are a few things I don't like. The keys are not sculpted, the keyboard is tiny, and the edges of the phone don't match. Rounded at the bottom, but cut off at the top. On the plus side, it is taking some design cues from the "silver" Passport and the back is grippy again. The space bar doubles as a finger print reader and the whole keyboard once again is a touchpad.

Now TCL needs to find a common design language for their BlackBerry devices.

That looks like the result of a Blackerberry Bold and an iPhone having sex...

From this angle it does.

Sieht schon gut aus. Ich persönlich bin nicht der Vieltipper auf Telefonen. Daher ist mir das Bildschirm-Realestate wichtiger. Aber wenn man viel tippt und ein modernes Telefon möchte ist das Ding bestimmt was.

Glad to hear that TCL will continue the Blackberry. How are they addressing the concern that the Chinese might add malware in the firmware.

I don't know. How do we make sure that Canadians don't add malware in the firmware?
