It's not supposed to be better than the passport. The passport is the upscale phone, this is their general market phone.
Passport = Bolt
Classic = Curve
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2014bb os is crap. best is android or appleHey, you back!
Yes, BB OS was crap. That is why BlackBerry developed BlackBerry 10 from scratch. Now this is the best mobile OS among the current ones.
I'm unsure about these specs...will it be less powerfull than the paasport? Which has 2.2ghz dualcore, 3gb ram, 16gb flash and 13mp camera. Sounds stupid

DannyW, 04 Dec 2014Looks like Blackberry has never been closer to perfection. Just need to work some more on the BB OSPerfection, in the world of smartphones, is an illusion.
Can't wait for this to come. Currently using Z30 and simply love it. Used 9900 for about 2.5 years before switching to Z30. Loved the 9900, combined with latest BB OS, will definitely love the Classic.

Remesh, 01 Dec 2014Ofcourse. But you should buy one first to call it "my".Nothing could be replaced with my iphone.
I've been using my nokia e72 for years now and haven't found any new phones to replace it. Tried a couple of touch screen phones but no matter how hard I try, can't really type fast without errors. looks like this will be my replacement, only things that disappoints me so far are non removable batteries and why it takes so long for bb to release this phone??
