Wow! I like the idea of this Classic. Well done John Chen (MasterMind!) and Team BB...I was going to get the Passport, but the wait was too long. I had to upgrade from my 9800 Torch, which is almost 5 years old, due to me having dropped the phone and the speaker becoming distorted, and I got the Z10 instead. Great choice! I had the sales assistant update the OS to 10.2 in-store, and Bob's your uncle - (SMOOTH AS BUTTER for the last 7 months!!). But what a brilliant phone my Torch has been (for MY purposes) People's needs will dictate what device works for them, and I'm definitely a Blackberry-for-life-guy! With The Internet-of-Things being developed, and with QNX being one of the dominant Omni-present software suites in most hi-tech devices around us (Massive Industrial airconditioner systems, Medical Systems, Vehicle on-board computers, high rise elevator systems, etc, we are yet to see the best of BLACKBERRY...

I suspect a BlackBerry user is the cause of his fears. Please don't take him seriously and forgive him if possible. Immaturity is not a crime.

It has the best and most modern OS for example and clearly the best security, which cannot be said for Android, which is a cheap gaming platform. OK Apple just works but is too expensive without carrier deals. Cheap android devices compromise on quality, such as screens, memory, reception, clarity, frequencies, battery life, OS updates, and warranty. They are throw away items in 12 months.
Just bought and am using the Blackberry Classic. This thing is as heavy as a brick; after using it for 30 minutes with one hand, my hand and forearm is getting sore!!! Anyone else experiencing this from switching to the Bold? Is it really that much heavier than other phones? May take it back and stick to my Bold.
