    They just forgot to put WebOS on it... it seems to be running some other "fruit-based" operating system.

    I think it looks pretty slick for a low-cost smartphone option. Pretty decent replacement for the Curve I'd say, for the portrait keyboard lovers.

    Uh yup...

    Smart move. The Z10 and Q10 are getting hype and notice. But everyone is noticing the price as well.

    A budget model is needed in the lineup and it looks pretty good for BB Jr...

    Man I heard him say 2100 mAh battery which is not too shabby for a budget phone. Non removeable but I guess you can't have it all. Also interesting is that they went to an LCD on this rather than the OLED screen like on the Q10, which had been getting some rough reviews on the screen I guess.

    More like a fleet model. Expect corporate will deploy these as the mass volume and the Q10 for executives.

    IMHO the Blackberry Q5 looks more like a HTC ChaCha than the Pixi.

    The cha cha is ugly as sin... I think the Q5 looks like a nice candy bar phone and especially in black resembles an overweight pixi.

    I think the Q5 looks as ugly as the ChaCha (yes, I hated the ChaCha from the moment it hit the market because of Its ugliness). Though the black is a bit nicer than the all-white ChaCha but still, it looks too much alike so I think it's ugly. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course

    In that case this thing is gonna blow. Most people, especially in my country, use BB because their easy to type on and they're cheap. If they now announce a cheaper Q5 that looks as cheap as the cheap HTC ChaCha but gonna sell it for 3-4 hundred then I'm not convinced this thing is gonna be a success.
