However, with BlackBerry having a record of experimenting with various form factors for its devices, we wouldn’t be surprised to see an upcoming device with a hinge such as the one described in this patent filing.
Not to mention that the design might be easily used with larger devices as well, such as tablet PCs, and BlackBerry has already launched a slate.
However, with nothing announced on this for the time being, we should just sit back and wait for the vendor to make an unveiling.
