Excited that’s it’s finally coming to BlackBerry 10 time. Glad to hear they are not ignoring the keyboard market. Myself though I gave up on keyboards and moved to full touch a while back so I’m super excited about the L series
I hope the N-series (w/ physical keyboard) is not the final design, I’m looking for a slider BlackBerry 10 with the same screen size and aspect ratio not a front facing keyboard with a smaller screen than the L-serires.
Blackberry still has some serious appeal. I think it will take time for them to repair their damaged image but time is easy to deal with when you bring it with hardware and software. I hope they do well.

physical QWERTY keyboard
IMO, The physical keyboard is RIM’s last remaining competitive advantage, and there is clearly a market for it, even though virtual keyboards seem dominant. RIM simply has to find a way to fit the portrait keyboard into a phone that’s at least 4 inches in screen size, without making the overall thickness more than 10-12mm.
