However this is a brilliant move from BlackBerry, IMO. Give a chance to pure keyboard users to take tentative steps (swipes?) on touch interface. They always can fall back to keys whenever necessary. This might cure the 'touch phobia' for some of them, old BlackBerry users.
I think the strategy might work.
Everyone saying the romovable battery is a flaw has nooo idea what they are talking about
Hardware QWERTY keyboards just wont take off again. Theres too many moving parts to go wrong and brake. Touch/gesture really IS the way foward. I can only envision celebrities (if you count Kanye West as a celebrity), corparate (business') and OAPs buying this handset.
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2014looks great, i have always liked BB but i will only get this if they add a finger print sensor... moreWell, BlackBerry is not putting fingerprint sensor because the OS is secured from inside and BlackBerry Protect from outside.
So go buy another another brand.

Rayan, 18 Dec 2014Classic has Adequate Specs. The device has 3.5 Inch Screen which is not enough for Web Browsin... moreOfcourse it is. But for price conscious crowd who are interested in a QWERTY phone with decent specifications passport may not be the best solution.
That is where classic comes into picture.
ia always using blackberry till date when will launch blacberry classic
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2014Did they fix BB10 yet? no more gestures? Is that a trackpad i see? Gestures is the way of the future man. On the subject of BB OS the hub is a cracker jack of a facility, makes the other os look primitive.
[deleted post]looks great, i have always liked BB but i will only get this if they add a finger print sensor for extra security and
if i can run my power point presentations at work of this then perfect i will definitely get this
if i am certain the device is capable and has the hardware
Classic has Adequate Specs. The device has 3.5 Inch Screen which is not enough for Web Browsing and Reading Documents. Black Berry Passport is Far More Superior Device than Classic.
Where can this be bought in uk if I have to wait any longer I'm not going to wait any longer
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2014Did they fix BB10 yet? no more gestures? Is that a trackpad i see? Yes it is a trackpad and waiting for the legacy users to move up!
What kind of buttons it have near trackpad. Whether touch buttons or physical pressing type buttons?
If anyone knows answer it bcoz I can't notice that properly in any HD pictures or videos.
Loved 9900 , Love Q10.
Classic? Guess gonna wait for another Q model
Bob, 17 Dec 2014Looks Good! Only things against it is the battery is not removable and it doesn't look like th... moreThe removable battery is the worst thing about Z10 hardware wise, backcover has glitches all the way around, really destroys any premium feeling the phone might have had. Modern people do not like removable batteries, thats why BB will stop making them also and thats great news.
