Q15 concept

It's concept time again, this time a slider, but not in the way we've seen from BlackBerry before. I strongly suspect we won't ever see a BlackBerry in this form factor, although it is always nice to check out concepts. 

That said, if a BlackBerry 10 device was to be made in this style and it was priced really low, it could sell - maybe. The main issue I have is that the smartphone market is moving forward with bigger screens and producing a compact design like this one just feels a little dated to me. 

On the other hand, I quite like the idea, but I'd be concerned how chunky it would be as it would need to house a reasonable sized battery in it as a selling point. A CrackBerry orange one may also look pretty sweet. 

And as if by magic - here's a CrackBerry orange one. Thanks Dion
