BB has need to get their pricing correct, which they have been poor at doing in recent years, with the possible exception of the Z3. This "classic" mobile should be priced to walk out the doors of sellers and get the BB OS out into the market space, in the worlds growth markets. Will BB do this like the Z3 - does not look like it.
dear bb, you treat consumers like a fool.with a few new buttons but fall shorts in other aspect and you charge us with a premium phone price? i was once your die hard fans but looking at you never be a fans of consumer, i am just gonna skip this..all bb users are affordable. but please make a phone that we will pay happily.
i dont understand why most poeple here complain the price, 449 is not expensive for a phone, go buy an iphone and you will see the price.
13k, 16 Nov 2014put gorilaglass 3, on the phones bb.The BlackBerry Passport has Gorilla Glass
Announced in June and a release in December? That I 6 months... please release it already BlackBerry.
Indian market obsessed with dual-sim phones. But even without dual-sim this phone has the ability to bring blackberry back into the game in India provided with a competitive price around 20 - 25k. There are lot of indian consumers looking for a good phone with physical keyboard. But there is a void in this segment.
Hope this will fill the void.
i fully agree with mingkly's opinion on 15.11 2014. BB thinks asian consumers are just fools....
I think BlackBerry classic will not be the charm, as per the specs the price is too high for such a phone. Anyway BlackBerry never offers dual sim which is a drawback. For these specs anyone will love to choose z10 or q5 or any pretty good android, even iphone 5s.
BB is very nice mobile, for Q20 i am waiting for dimensions,
i hope that to posible using with one hand like q10.
I have used and loved BB's for the last 8 years. Have been waiting all year for the Classic. Now I learn that it will not be offered on Verizon Network. I give up. Buying an Iphone. Cannot wait any longer. I'm very disappointed with BB.

Blackberry is not listening to users.. where's dual sim options.. there is no mid-level dual sim qwerty phone.. they can control 100% of the market...
