Went will this device release to the market... when?, when?!!!!!!!!
northvanman, 09 Nov 2014Hey Blackberry, let's get that new Classic out...please, my old Bold is haywired togetherYep, same with my Bold 9900 - needs to be traded in and quickly - it is falling apart with the keyboard needing to be replaced on a regular basis. Sometime the mobile just locks up and requires 3 to 4 reboots to get it working again. I hope the classic will be a quality made device and will be released soon. If BB cannot release their mobiles on a timely basis then dont even announce them until you are ready.
Blackberry q20 is best qwerty phone in the comparision to other such as q5,9720 etc.
release this phone and fast BB. put gorila glass on this one. Dont price the phone more than 50$ over price Q5 or will not be work for me.
Love blackberry qwerty keyboard, no Match for it. Expectation
1. Hardware call button as any qwerty blackberry
2. Microsoft mail exchange integration < wifi active synch)
3. Bold 9900 keypad
4. snapdragon processor ablest quad core
Currently I using iPhone but I still love my blackberry. Please release old blackberry with active synch

compared wth z10, the only difference with this is the keyboard, blackberry need to give us more reasons to move or upgrade, atleast somthing like 13mp camera , or same mp but better quality..Look at samsung, every phone they bring out is better than the last one, if you have s3 when s4 come out you'll buy it (not all i know but a good %) i have z10, if they release z20 for example same size 13-16mp camera and a couple of more native apps or ftrs i will upgrade for sure but this is the same as my phone..and my phone is 2 years old..am not saying my camera is not good enough or my phone is slow, but since we are moving on, why not 13 mp camera? why not a few extra apps like tv remote like the samsung one?or somthing that give people reason to upgrade..atm using z10 and iphone 6, will never let my bb go but help us with that
Tim, 07 Nov 2014Crazy, when will this mobile be released. Waiting waiting waiting. zzzzz.Lolz yep. Completely agree.
Please don't keep us waiting..
Crazy, when will this mobile be released. Waiting waiting waiting. zzzzz.
are those specs official ? i do have a Q10 now and dont know witch one to pick the classic or the passport waiting for the classic to be out so i can compare. but specs wise im more tempted to go for the passport
Remesh, 05 Nov 2014Heh.. then why wait? Please go ahead and buy Passport.Because Classic has normal form and track pad..
when this phone going to be out there so we can buy it, dont wait much more BB or you going to lose market range. if dont lunch this phone next month will buy Q10 .
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2014The pricing is gonna be very vital. The specs don't offer much for a premium range. Except for... moreAgree, specifications alone can't offer premium feel. However, I imagine Classic as a more utility tool than a smartphone for show-off purpose.
As for your second question, No, BlackBerry 10 phones does not support BIS.
TePan, 02 Nov 2014Too bad... I would buy this if it has specification like PassportHeh.. then why wait? Please go ahead and buy Passport.
chideraa, 31 Oct 2014After using Q10.i feel like blackberry with trackpad are now outdated or for older blackberry'... moreIf you read the passport session of GSM arena, you find people who are complaining about the bigger size of passport. There is a market for smaller, handy phones. For navigation, many people still prefer trackpad than full touch screen ( one advantage is that the tracking finger does not cover the text / data in the screen).
Classic has got slightly bigger screen. I guess BlackBerry think it as a kind of 'transition' phone from old BBOS. Maybe it will work.
