So, BlackBerry is seeking to mitigate its losses by changing direction and dominating a niche market... Well, good for them! As far as I can tell, it's working. There's no way they can compete with Apple, Samsung, LG, etc. directly under current conditions. I hope they don't bork this. Because if they do, they won't have a second chance.

jc, 18 Dec 2014the specs on the iphone 6 are worse than the bb classicWhat? iPhone 6 with the most powerful chipset you can get in many ways, how is that worse than this?

Noone has to like Apple but thers no denying that Apple A7 and A8 are state of the art and is what the rest of the industry is trying to catch up to, without success so far. Apple A8 is the one to beat, like it or not.

$450?, 17 Dec 20142012 just called and wanted its specs back.did you pay $600+ for an iphone 6 with worse specs?
Anonymous, 17 Dec 20142012 Spec with 2015 Price. $150 makes sense, not $450the specs on the iphone 6 are worse than the bb classic
A bit pricy for the specs though. 350$ would be the perfect price.. Hopefully they would think of cutting prices including the more over-priced bb passport..

The BB OS is a lot more efficient than Android, so a straight-up comparison of specs won't determine performance.

Not a smart guy, 17 Dec 2014How is taht it supports Android Apps? someone explain me please!!!It has a kernel (not the core but like a sub-kernel) that runs Android apps. I am not a techie so I can't explain it well.
Bottom line: you can run 90% of Android apps without any issues.
