Not really my type of device the Passport but its special for sure, interesting niche product. Anyway im not buying BB again before BB10 OS has a way to log out or disable BBM. Best OS but BB has a horrible disrespect for users privacy, buyers beware.
a QWERTY phone with optical track pad.
No touchscreen please.
Is this a joke? Seriously, is this what they're counting on to save the company. If this is not a bad joke then I'm sorry to say, I think they're toast. Have they no vision left, no inspiration? Are they so desperate that they are prepared to go with just about any idiot idea that comes to their empty minds? Geez! That square ugly thing is the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time. Really!!!
I've just been waiting for another blackberry device, and it's here
Blackberry is my favourite ,so cool phone coming excited to use them
BBBold, 20 Jun 2014 As a blackberry Bold fan and a user, I'm thrilled about this new BB Clasic because it's ver... moreThat's right bro, bold9900 was the best. And I totaly agree NO NEED of touchscreen display, the optical trackpad is enough.
the apple user in me says "who gives a shhhh", but the blackberry fan in me says.... "get it..."
Its not about spec! Look at windows phones! same experience on the 520 as the 1020 for example... Most common people 70% population don't care about the duel and quad or oct cores, if the phone performs well so be it. Make a removable battery and make it a solid long lasting one you have me won!
Raker, 20 Jun 2014What's the benefits of having on off button on TV if the remote has itReally bad comparison. They are both useful for very different reasons.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2014what is the benefit of the optical trackpad if phone is touch screen?It helps you keep your hands on the keyboard and also navigate through menus and stuff just so you don't have to move the phone around and constantly shift the device around in your hands, ESPECIALLY when typing. It's brilliant.
For all other practical uses, like going through the apps list, settings, etc, you can just use the touch screen.
Wow! I really love that 2 gorgeous BlackBerry smartphones! I'm now confused what will I buy next, I'm a former BlackBerry Bold 9790 user and I miss my toolbelt on my qwerty keypad damn the BlackBerry Classic is totally good looking qwerty with optical trackpad device and also I want to try that unique large screen qwerty BlackBerry Passport rumored with a high specs. With the new Blackberry 10 OS version 10.3 coming this fall with the new Amazon Appstore available that would be the best thing in BlackBerry! Thank you Sir Chen keep it up! #Blackberry10 the very fast most secured OS yet! #If you want High-Class Security, Choose BlackBerry!
duartix, 20 Jun 2014The benefit of the trackpad is scrolling, I believe. Scrolling pages, scrolling through menus... moreAlso it's easier to edit text using a cursor rather than try hitting between the letters with your sausage fingers.
Android Man, 20 Jun 2014dont see the point Blackberry is dead. If your name is Androidman no wonder you don't see the point.
