I am thinking about buying a Ledger Blue (currently have a keepkey but tbh it feels lacking) and would like to know how reliable it is? Is it compatible with electrum or other wallets that support hw wallets? How is the quality of the build itself? And last, is it worth it? I know spending over $200 is somewhat overboard but it looks like it may be promising (especially since it has bluetooth as well as NFC(?) and only needs a firmware update to activate it if its not already which makes it useful for at home on pc and on the go with a mobile device with an app that supports it). The concern I have is the quality of the device itself because it would be expensive having to replace it if LedgerHQ doesnt replace it under some type of warrenty (if they have any).

The product was meant for enterprises and not for individuals. Ledger Nano S is the product that everyone should have in the other hand, and I contacted them before and they said that they are two separate products and they will continue to update both but to answer your questions, there is Myetherwallet, GreenBits, Electrum, and other wallet supports, you could take a look at the official website.

Interesting on why it would be meant for enterprises but they both pretty much carry the same concept (excluding the BLE and NFC). The website does state its "packs enterprise-level crypto-capabilities", which tells me it uses the same tech large enterprises would use to secure data, unless I am missing something from their website.

The one thing I might find *slightly* concerning now (after looking at how the ledger nano s and ledger blue work) is that they do ask for the user to confirm the transactions but dont provide some type of pin like tezor and keepkey does (unless im missing something) before signing the transaction.

I'm not sure but here is what they told me through email last time (I asked them If they are going to drop the Nano S and focus on Ledger blue):

We are not going to focus on the Ledger Blue since it is a completely different product that's not aimed at the same consumer base. The Nano S will remain our sub-100$ flagship product.

Very interesting. That makes it sounds like they wont even support the ledger blue in the future by the way that is phrased. Ill keep it all in mind though.
