      We have different needs and wants. This is for those who would like a physical keyboard like me. If you don’t need it, look elsewhere. I definitely like the form factor. So, this is definitely for people like me, not you.

    Im actually excited about this fone from blackberry. the keyboard will certainly be a hit among those loyal blackberry users, maybe not so much on the new users. but still, im gonna wait for a review on this, and if its good well its gonna be the PRIV vs Moto X Style.
