Blackberry is thinking that there a... moreI am sure you will be surprised to know how many people are actually longing for and willing to buy phones with physical keyboards. The reason they abandoned Bold is because of the shortcomings of the hardware as well as dated OS. Not everyone are looking to watch movie 'blockbusters' in tiny 4", 5" or 6" screens nor are they big into games. They prefer to have a quick view of a video at times ( purely for information purpose). They , if need to watch movies, would do so in a bigger 40" inch screens.
Admitting that Z30 is a pretty good enough phone ( I moved from a Q10 to a Z30, and I am comfortable with typing on a glass) , it might not gell with people who prefer type on physical keyboards. I know a lot many of people personally who are hanging on to their qwerty Nokias and older BlackBerrys because they have no other option at present ( Q5 or Q10 may not , for them, give the complete qwerty experience).
If priced sensibly, and marketed efficiently I see classic will be a decent success. Yes, I agree that I would go for a Z35 with a better screen and a fantastic camera. But that is not a priority as I am pretty happy and productive with my Z30.
I wish BlackBerry hear our silent voices.

Blackberry is thinking that there are enough people out there who still want mechanical keys to make the phone a success. I think if that were the case people wouldn't have abandoned their Bold series phones for touchphones.
Then there's the display form factor. What advantage does the square display have over the Z30? Other than not needing to turn the phone from landscape to portrait I can't think of one. Yet the disadvantage it has is in displaying nearly all media content which is X-by-Y and not X-by-X.
John Chen better work on getting a top spec Z30 successor in the lineup with a better camera as well as a mid and low cost phones to compliment the Z3.
As good as the Z30 and Z3 are it's going to take more models with different price points and more MARKETING to get the company out of the red. I don't see new models with old design style QUERTY keyboards and square displays getting the job done.

Z30 is awesum ... i used it n i enojyed lots of android apps first at blackberry now i can i got complete cell .... thnx blackberry
I love my BB Z10 but the battery is pretty wimpy. I want to get BB Z30 instead, but the only Z30 model sold on the online BlackBerry store is: STA100-5. Its LTE bands: 3,7,20,8 (1800/2600/900/800 MHz) are great internationally but NOT for USA. What am I to do? Where do I get my Z30 that works with AT&T or even Sprint? (Verizon has its own...but they sure aren't serious about BBs!)
PlazaDubai, 01 Jul 2014Blackberry its failure , because the OS, but here this Z30 support Andreod softwre???You say so because you never used a BlackBerry 10 phone and never could figure out how to use it? No, buddy. that makes you a failure.
To answer your second question, yes. It can run android applications - most of them.
I got this phone for a few days and I totally into it
amazing smartphone, I got only this problem

Anonymous, 30 Jun 2014budies i think bb passports design cant compete with z30 z30 looks much better.Hmm, probably. However there are people who think 3.5" full touch phone is too big for them and there are people who think 6.5" tablet is too small for them.
Weird are the tastes of people.
