    With a 1440x1440 resolution, 3GB ram, 32 Gigs of storage, this device packs a 4.5 inch square screen.

    (This packs more pixel density than any of the current crop, HTC One M8 included)

    The keypad is touch capacitive, so you can use it as a scroller, yep just run your fingers over the keys and they work as a scroller.

    A 13 MP camera with OIS is at the back, and the winner for me is the 3450 mAH battery.

    A great looker, the phone does have what it takes to bring BlackBerry back into the game. Will it? Only time will tell. Tentatively Launching September 2014.

    IT does look better than their previous installments, but will it change their fortunes? I have my doubts.

    Actually, the table have turned, I think for the past couple of years, iPhone has been playing catch-up, however whatever they do it is well polished and ready to run out-of-the-box. Android requires tinkering.
