That's what I am waiting for! My Bold 9900 is the best phone in the world for me. The Classic will be much better. Waiting for the White one. Thank you very much.
If the blackberry q20 has a removable battery then it will have outdone the blackberry 9900 and also in terms of RAM. A trackpad and a removable battery is an unbeatable combination and a must for the blackberry q 20! Am a die-hard qwerty person.
Anybody hv idea hw much it wl cost?? I m planning yo buy it but if its more than 20000 then I wl go for q5.
Thnx in advance.

No, RIP BlackBerry is not going to happen, how many times you pray to the darklord. At present , there is only option for people who want and need a high end QWERTY smartphone is BlackBerry. A QWERTY guy will not go to a glass slab if he can help it.
Nevertheless, I wish the release frequency of new BlackBerry models are more close to each other. Testing water is fine, but do not test it for too long in a World where the supply of patience is dwindling per second.
am, 27 Oct 2014where it is given that the battery is non removable?gsma arena and thats towards the last features.
only one man , 25 Oct 2014it's not the only phone with a none removable battery. so no need to panic where it is given that the battery is non removable?

supposingly i a good phone but the stupid Chen guys hold for too long i think now they miss the window and it will be a big failure again. User all went to iPhone 6 now.
Hmm...between this and the Q10 which one has a better processor. Because it's almost the same snapdragon S4 right? And will it be worth it if i have a q10 and want to upgrade to the classic?
Alert! Calling all hackers and techies! Seriously, so, the upcoming Blackberry Classic (Q20) will have a non-removable battery. We users of qwerty phones (such the great but aging Nokia E72) will be depending on you to provide us all a way replacing the BB Classic battery when it becomes unusable -- as all Classic batteries will. So, start figuring various root/workaround methods for us (future purchasers of the Classic) who see "qwerty" as essential and elegant. Beyond the year-long debate about removable vs non-removable, a cellphone with a non-removable battery smells almost like "planned obsolescence".

Bought Optus prepaid sim's and once registered and turn back on, both mobiles registered immediately for the full BB functions on Optus prepaid 4G ready plan. Easy. So did not need any BIS stuff in Australia no matter what your BB is. Even the email's were setup immediately. Very happy with it.
I was waiting for this as an upgrade for my dad, but this turned to have absolutely zero upgrade over the Q10. Just increase in screen size, and by using metallic frame, made it heavy as hell.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2014unfortunately that's not gonna happen mate. BIS uses data compressing system, that's why it's ... moreThis is not true, Blackberry does not use this data system in their new phones. Since the q5/q10/z10 release they are actually using the data that smartphones/iPhones use, so this is not applicable to any new blackberry phones. Blackberry data is jsut packaged as regular data now unlease you have a bold/curve/torch.
