Here's what I think after some time with the BlackBerry's ambitious keyboard phone.
In a crowded mid-range smartphone market, the DTEK50 doesn't stand out. It's a $300 phone that feels like a $200 one.
The BlackBerry Leap ditches a physical keyboard to lure folks looking for a modern smartphone experience, but a lack of apps and a lackluster camera keep this device behind the competition.
BlackBerry has flashed a glimpse of a mystery phone with a sliding keyboard, nicknamed "the Slider".
If you're willing to trade screen size for a superior physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic is a fantastic productivity phone for old-school QWERTY junkies.

The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a $50 BlackBerry (with contract), it's reliable and makes texting a breeze.
The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a no-contract BlackBerry, it's reliable and makes texting a breeze.
Verizon's BlackBerry Curve 9370 brings you BlackBerry 7 OS and a global-ready SIM slot in an ultraportable package. Unfortunately, some design flaws and a high price for an entry-level device make the QWERTY handset hard to recommend to anyone except BlackBerry devotees.
For those who seek an affordable and entry-level BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Curve 9350 is the way to go.
The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9850 for Verizon Wireless is a laudable midrange smartphone, but it faces stiff competition.
The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best QWERTY BlackBerry to date, but should be priced lower.
The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is a decent entry-level BlackBerry with a couple of modern features like 3G and GPS, but we wish it was more affordable.
The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a solid messaging smartphone and ships with the latest BlackBerry OS, but it's not necessarily worth the upgrade.
