    I loved my blackberries. But, alas, like my Palm Pilot, its time has come and gone.:vbfrown: Blackberry or its many successors have been trying to "resurrect" this design for a decade. Let the dead rest.:newpalm:

    I will say this though, at least it's 5G.

    People keep focusing on the handset. The larger question is the continuing quality of the underlying server/security architecture and operation.

    Agreed except that they don't have the commanding lead they once did . For that matter both current IOS and Samsung Knox are equal or better , at least in the last analysis I saw.

    Yes they might be more secure than a Blu or OnePlus though.

    Traitor here (to those who think my Note 20u decision is heresy) but here goes:

    If you are on AT&T they have an incredible bargain on Note 20u 512gb that expires today, with a few gottcha's:
    1. $1000 off retail
    2. You do not have to have the latest and greatest phone - goes back to early Notes and S, early (6s) iPhones
    3. Comes as monthly credits - so even though there is "no contract" you have to stay with them for 30 months to get that price - you basically pay a "net" $15 per month for the 30 months (their insurance is expensive though, another $15 per month if you are into that)
    4. If you leave early you have to pay off the phone at the remaining months times $50 - so no paying off the $15/month in month 2
    5. Of course the phone is locked to AT&T, and they allegedly will unlock it when paid off but my experience with that in the past has been dicey
    We're on AT&T here because TX was owned by SW Bell back in the day, which morphed into Cingular and back to AT&T. Service is really pretty good here in Texas, NM, CO, and on the interstates, but my "Verizon" children have not liked AT&T in the Midwest and east coast, where Verizon is king.

    Bye bye galaxy note, it was nice knowing you:

    Galaxy S21 may get S Pen as Samsung said to ditch Galaxy Note series
    The S Pen is the key differentiator between Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. That’s why the stylus was never made compatible with any Galaxy S flagship. However, if a new report out of South Korea is believed, Samsung might be making a major change to its lineup in 2021.

    It’s claimed that the Galaxy S21 will come with an S Pen as Samsung is set to ditch the Galaxy Note series next year. The S Pen will only be available with the top-of-the-line model which would ostensibly be called the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
