back to article BlackBerry boss vows to keep making phones

BlackBerry CEO John Chen told shareholders at his company's AGM today that he’ll stay in the handset business as he reckons he has a good chance at making money from it.

I'm sticking with my z10 for now and I'd like to replace it with the same (OS/size/resolution/replaceable battery/build quality) but better (battery life/processor/RAM).

I find the Passport to bug.

I am also after a replacement to the Q10 (A BB one as BB10 does what I want it to) but it looks like its not going to happen :(

I know there's still people buying them

Yes, it is. Chen's just kicking it.

I moved from a Q10 to Q30 a month ago. Better IMHO.

Staples in Canada will give you 1 months trial period.

At $269 I figure it's a steal.
