Wise men learn from others mistake but idiot like bb maker are not learning from their own mistakes. Surely they have got suggestions from millions of fan that what they want but still they come with the same features which is tooooooooo old for a dumb mobile users so what do you expect from expert users. Classic should have been octa core, 3gb ram, dual sim, 16mp camera otherwise what is the difference bw q10 n classic. Only a fool will buy this phone.
AlJ, 18 Dec 2014Can anyone tell me why someone would puchase this over the Q10? Specs are almost similar. Can ... moreQ10 is nearly 2 years old and i love proper send/end buttons to hang up phone call.
The Q10 is still a good smartphone but folk fancy a new phone can buy this.If your happy with Q10 then stay with it,lots folk do stay with their favourite phone and just buy a new battery to make it new.

A smartphone's utility is in more than specs. Since you asked this question,it is evident that Classic is not for you.
Can anyone tell me why someone would puchase this over the Q10? Specs are almost similar. Can you really justify spending over twice the amount just for the trackpad?
AnonD-268667, 18 Dec 2014Hardware QWERTY keyboards just wont take off again. Theres too many moving parts to go wrong a... morePossibly.
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... moreThey are making models for different people but at least BB is still here ..They must keep up the buisness as its the ONLY company doing hardware qwerty keyboard smartphones.
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.
