I think old blackberry user may buy this. But it is difficult to attract new user because of highly price.
Don, 14 Nov 2014Will this have 1800LTE such as for Australia?No, it only has 2600 for Asia and Europe.
Looks like they may release another version.
449$ its to expensive for this phone. Price the phone to the same: Q10, classic, Q5. this phone dont have nothing much , no even gorilaglass pff. just old fans like me going to buy it. but for that price anunce i will not gone buy.
I started using BB in 2009 (right when it was going downhill) but loved it madly..
BB just makes you feel you're in a compact comfort zone..
Used Android after BB.. loved that too.. but I always crave for a BB phone.. I wanted to get Q10 but it didnt have the scroller and home button grid..
Been madly waiting for BB classic.. but its kinda pricey if you ask me.. it needs to be half its price!
I want this. I had a BB 8520 once and since then I have used apple, htc, sony, samsung and Moto, but non of them was as rewarding as the old BB. Welcome back.
Vox, 14 Nov 2014Agree, if people want high camera specs buy a professional camera if want to play games use al... moreVery poor argument, you use the camera you have with you, ie the phone, your Sony mirrorless is of no use when it stays at home 99% of the time, even a RX100 is not something most people would carry IN ADDITION to a smartphone.
About the post you replied to, a PS4, wut!?! Fisrt of all the good games are on Xbox and in any case you cannot bring either to play whereever you may be. As a BB10 user i find the game selection inadequate even if im sideloading android apps, too many of them simply does not work or is not available as APK downloads. A real camera and gaming consoles are both good things but not anything you can carry with you all the time.

northvanman, 09 Nov 2014Hey Blackberry, let's get that new Classic out...please, my old Bold is haywired togetherYep, same with my Bold 9900 - needs to be traded in and quickly - it is falling apart with the keyboard needing to be replaced on a regular basis. Sometime the mobile just locks up and requires 3 to 4 reboots to get it working again. I hope the classic will be a quality made device and will be released soon. If BB cannot release their mobiles on a timely basis then dont even announce them until you are ready.
Blackberry q20 is best qwerty phone in the comparision to other such as q5,9720 etc.
release this phone and fast BB. put gorila glass on this one. Dont price the phone more than 50$ over price Q5 or will not be work for me.
Love blackberry qwerty keyboard, no Match for it. Expectation
1. Hardware call button as any qwerty blackberry
2. Microsoft mail exchange integration < wifi active synch)
3. Bold 9900 keypad
4. snapdragon processor ablest quad core
Currently I using iPhone but I still love my blackberry. Please release old blackberry with active synch
