The Blackberry Priv is almost gone from the shops (available in some Carphone Warehouse stores for £299). I'm looking forward to seeing the blackberry Mercury. However, its smaller screen size could be a draw back (though all those programmable buttons are tempting. And if you're editing on a screen only smartphone, the on screen keyboard takes up a sizeable chunk of the screen).

After using the Yoga book with a flat input pad that can be used for drawing or typing on, I've come to realise that I would like something like a priv 2, where there is a small input panel that can be pulled down for typing on or using a swype style keyboard. That would give me a bigger screen and something that could telescope back-to-back a more practical pocket sized device. Alternatively, keep the physical keyboard but support input by sliding your finger over the physical keys.
