I don't think they care about fragmentation at this point, at least in the scope of the whole Pixel business plan. Pixel isn't affected by downstream fragmentation, so they can compete against Apple on service level, security, user experience, and at some point smartphone profits.

Everyone else can't compete effectively unless they run stock neutered Android, and Google is making it worse as they limit features to Pixel.

If you miss keyboards I think you will like the new KEYone. My wife has always been a keyboard (and Blackberry) fan and she has had the Priv for some time now and loves it. She is planning on getting the KEYone as soon as it is out. I have had tons of phones, and I recently went from a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to a BlackBerry DTEK60. I don't miss the S7 Edge at all. BlackBerry's software is way better (keyboard, calendar, contacts, email, etc) and they do have the software updates first few days of every month.

I'm looking at either the keyone or the dtek 60, am using a priv right now.

Love the kb and use both the kb and the virtual kb as I've become accustomed to either or.

Software is great - solid and very slick. Liking the Priv and the BB addons way better than samsungs.

Hoping for Nougat soon.

Keyone looks pretty slick too, may consider that over the Dtek60.

I still love the physical kb, but I am swaying towards the dtek60 for that reason. Thanks for the info

That kind of bugs me that they didn't bother with better specs for the KEYone

Most phones are now made with off the shelf parts.

Having a square screen and a keyboard means both are custom parts and will cost extra, spec suffered to offset that cost.

Because nobody but KeyOne has that odd ball size screen. Screen supplier will not be able to find anyone else to buy it off them.

I got the pre-order email and it's only on fucking Rogers and some other networks excluding Fido. So I am screwed and can't pre-order. Will have to wait until it's readily available to be able to buy it outright at a Rogers store or perhaps blackberry directly if they offer it.

I will wait for BlackBerry store. Carrier locked version won't get monthly update I heard, which is the whole point besides the keyboard.

I got teased hard for rocking a Priv on launch. Since that time some of the haters have gotten their own as work phones (by choice). My only complaint is that the camera is lackluster. I love the physical keyboard.

This is what I am doing too. I saw the pre-order but for fucking rogers only, and I plan on moving away from Rogers, so for me the blackberry store is the only version i want. Too bad the store itself isn't pre-ordering.

That seems unusual, do you have a link where I can check this out

I wonder if you can just get the phone unlocked and then get updates. In the past, all of my BB phones were ridiculously easy to unlock

There is one thing the Priv does better, and it may matter to you. The Priv has better reception than the KEYone in every test I've tried. The Priv is better on T-Mobile and AT&T, as well as MVNO carriers that use either network. In the same place at the same time, noticeably better. Where I live, work and play the KEYone is acceptable when it comes to connection strength and not the worst phone I have here. But it doesn't see the downright awesome signal strength you might have noticed from your Priv. If you need a phone that works well as a phone (the difference in data speeds was negligible at best) and you live on the fringe of coverage, you may have issues you didn't have with your Priv.

My priv is unlocked, but I still don't get the monthly updates, but I'm counting on them via Rogers. Guess I can try doing it manually via blackberry itself?
