Although BlackBerry has pretty much given up on smartphones, this doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing at least a couple of such models, especially with the company outsourcing and all. We may actually see some interesting designs from BB’s partners. Till then there’s the BlackBerry concept below, envisioned by Faruk Kaya.

Made with Autodesk Maya, the concept phone is very slim and also very rounded. I mean I’ve seen rounded phones, but this is certainly more curvaceous than that. It’s got a very interesting placement of the buttons, with one at the top and two on the sides. That small thingie at the bottom is I’m guessing a port, but you never know these days, with devices going all wireless and stuff.

The designer doesn’t quite detail this BlackBerry concept phone, but it seems to me we’re dealing with a metallic device, with a transparent case element and a pretty compact body. It’s got a virtual Assistant at is core and at least one speaker at the bottom. Sadly we have no view of the device’s back, but I’m guessing there’s a pretty flat camera at the back, so it won’t spoil the format of the device.

Not exactly the typical BlackBerry, but then again BB is far from typical these days.
