If there are so many people longing the physical keyboard with updated OS and hardware then why doesn't the Q5/Q10 have the sales numbers? If you google Q10 or Q5 Blackberry sales, the words used to describe sales are flat, poor and dismal.

As commented, there aren't enough people wanting the smaller screen and physical keyboard out there to make these devices enough of a success to turn BB around.

Chen better focus on what is currently the successful form factor in the market and then one up the market leaders and perhaps more importantly, out market them.

The Z10 & Z30 are both very good phones, however because BB isn't actively marketing the phones or addressing the concerns and perception many uninformed people have concerning lower ram and CPU specs meaning "Laggy" performance people don't think they're phones worth buying.

best phone i have used to date, the major issue I had with smart phones was the battery life and this thing goes for hours and hours without charge. close to about 30-45 hours depending on my usage and I love it =). battery can be at 25% and I wont be like omgggg charge time like the s3. I dont knwo about the previous OS but the latest updates are pretty solid and ofcourse quality is one of the best. I will give this phone a 9/10. one thing I dont like is that my GTA3 did not run :( apparently going to be fixed in the next update so lets see. one last thing speakers are freaking awesome. peace

Funny that no one asking this question to Apple.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-07-06 06:50 from sGJk - click to readI am sure you will be surprised to know how many people are actually longing for and willing to buy phones with physical keyboards. The reason they abandoned Bold is because of the shortcomings of the hardware as well as dated OS. Not everyone are looking to watch movie 'blockbusters' in tiny 4", 5" or 6" screens nor are they big into games. They prefer to have a quick view of a video at times ( purely for information purpose). They , if need to watch movies, would do so in a bigger 40" inch screens.

Admitting that Z30 is a pretty good enough phone ( I moved from a Q10 to a Z30, and I am comfortable with typing on a glass) , it might not gell with people who prefer type on physical keyboards. I know a lot many of people personally who are hanging on to their qwerty Nokias and older BlackBerrys because they have no other option at present ( Q5 or Q10 may not , for them, give the complete qwerty experience).

If priced sensibly, and marketed efficiently I see classic will be a decent success. Yes, I agree that I would go for a Z35 with a better screen and a fantastic camera. But that is not a priority as I am pretty happy and productive with my Z30.

I wish BlackBerry hear our silent voices.

Blackberry is thinking that there are enough people out there who still want mechanical keys to make the phone a success. I think if that were the case people wouldn't have abandoned their Bold series phones for touchphones.

Then there's the display form factor. What advantage does the square display have over the Z30? Other than not needing to turn the phone from landscape to portrait I can't think of one. Yet the disadvantage it has is in displaying nearly all media content which is X-by-Y and not X-by-X.

John Chen better work on getting a top spec Z30 successor in the lineup with a better camera as well as a mid and low cost phones to compliment the Z3.

As good as the Z30 and Z3 are it's going to take more models with different price points and more MARKETING to get the company out of the red. I don't see new models with old design style QUERTY keyboards and square displays getting the job done.
