Will This Concept of the Blackberry Blade Cut Down the Competition?
Could this be the new Blackberry? The video popped up in my Google+ feed but there isn't much of an explanation about it. Either way it looks pretty cool.
The creators of the video, Interesting Engineering, also release details on the specs of the device.

Most Blackberry owners I knew two years ago have now switched to Android or even Apple. Blackberry boasted they were planning something big and I will admit I'm impressed by their this new Blackberry Blade concept, but is it enough to get back their once strong following? According to Kantar WorldPanel, Blackberry's parent company RIM had only 1.4% of the market in November 2012. Apple has a whopping 53.3%!
