Nice phone, anyone knows if this phone will be announced on the 24th as well?
I really don't understand why some people chase Blackberry down because of the new phones is all about(touch screens) and QWERTY is not good? Well, I'll answer that, qwerty is made uniquely (we have to admit that even touchscreen phone has it) that most mobile phone coppied that style, 2nd, these type of phone are made for PROFESIONAL EMPLOYEEs not for just someone who doesn't have an idea of what qwerty is all about, 3rd, these applications are coppied (why?), try to look how most apllication are similar to BBM (examples like WeChat, Viber, WhatsApp etc) thay have almost the same use, so they should thank BB for that,that through Blackberry they were able to come up an idea of application that has almost a Blackberry. Some touch screens mobile phone might change how the handset looks but they can never change that some are coppied.
I Love Blackbery product, is any CLASSIC mode (ON/OFF noTouchScreen) could be setting ? Save the battery please...
I feel this phone should have been the next model of 9900 with OS 7.1 instead of the really bad OS 10

I think the best phone blackberry ever made was the bold 9900. What I was kinda hoping for is a remake of that same phone. Track pad, touch screen, 128 Gb storage, 8 m/p front and 13 m/p rare camera,3300 mah batery along with the other features that it already has and it will be a force to be reconed with
It's about ten years that I'm using BB for job and iphone for personal use and fun. I love both of them, but believe me, for job the qwerty is the best and irremissible. Now, with appropriate touch screen (3,5' even with phisical keyboars!!)in my opinion BB made almost the perfect product for professionals. It will be mine as soon as available (I hope soon).

Could not have replied in any better way. I always wonder what is with people who gets fits and seizure the moment they hear the word "QWERTY". You don't like it, don't buy it. There are plenty of people who wants it. Ah please remember it is not only the "OLD" or "1910" people but the young generation too enjoy a QWERTY phone provided it has got a decent pair of cameras (rear and front).

"Can i install android OS on blackberry classic"
The answer is " HELL NO". If the question was about android applications, then the answer is "Yes".
