                Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP has commenced a class action against BlackBerry Limited (“BlackBerry”) on behalf of a group of BlackBerry’s employees working in Ontario and across Canada.

                The Divisional Court heard and dismissed BlackBerry’s motion for leave to appeal the certification decision on September 17, 2019.

                      Had a priv. Had a slide.

                      I could type a three page email with the slide.

                      The priv sucked because when you slide the keyboard down the phone is super top heavy.

                      Blackberry needs to have the keyboard slide from the side in landscape mode.

                      It would have been fantastic.

                      I love my physical keyboards but BB needs to reclaim its heritage and stop trying to be an iphone with a physical keyboard.

                        I just bought a blackberry classic the other day. I bought it as a 2nd phone to my note 10+. For a nostalgic reason but am loving it. Especially, love the keyboard and bb10! Blackberry should just concentrate on their core customers. The rests are just iPhone and android gens. That's why they're not so into it. Why force someone to like you? hehe :p

                            Trying to push old technology because you loved it, is like trying to push people to buy horses instead of cars. Dumb product design.

                                    I wouldn't say laughing stock. RIM is the reason smartphones of today exist. What boggles my mind is how they seemed to try and fail in the end of their phone manufacturing days. Thorsten Heins basically ran the place into the ground and walked away with $55 million in severance just laughing and never to be heard of again.

                                            Today I spent 3 hours finding out how to download BlackBerry keyboard on my non BlackBerry android phone and finally I got it with cobalts BlackBerry manager package and after one initial crash I was able to install it successfully. I dont regret it.
                                            Even BlackBerry's virtual keyboard is best virtual keyboard on any os let alone their hard keyboard. And you are saying flaws about keyboard. Come on now. Learn to use it first.

I personally don't care if its BB, Samsung, motorola, huawei or anything else, but I NEED a physical keyboard. Unless someone can explain to me how to get a touchscreen to work with either cold or dirty hands.
