    ... and find this as perfect setup to wait till Q20. I use my 8800 Sicocco to impress girls and make calls, while Q remains kinda work and entertiment tool for streaming, emailing, chats, social etc.

    Btw, 8800 battery life claimed as "unexcaptable" in 2007 in forums. Yes, its only 4-5 days...

    Are these 'girls' imaginary, or 5 years old? Also what does this have to do with the Q20...
    It's a sad day when someone has to buy a phone older than half a decade to make voice calls instead of using his/her BlackBerry

    Oh, I want an 8800. Such a cool phone. If only it had contacts sync, I'd migrate.

    to be fair though, there are very few phones that look "modern" even though they're rather old now. i mean damn, the original RAZR, and even the 8800 feel like swiss watches in your hand, until you turn on the screen that is. another really solid feeling one is the iphone 4/4s.

    the irony of this is that your grandma probably would be impressed. large, easy to read screen, and none of those new fangled onscreen buttons. things change, but what's happened is the pace of change has changed. for the elderly its not an easy feat adapting. i actually did deploy a few old blackberry's which were professionally refurbished to residents in a nursing home. they loved them.

    Got a Q5 on discount for my mum. It may seem like common bloody sense to you and me, but for someone who isnt a digital native, its a valid question when they ask:

    why the hell does it let me delete the phone and text buttons?????

    iOS is an overkill and too expensive. picked up the brand new Q5 for US$90. hopefully it solves her problems.

    for users who just want a smooth experience, want premium materials, i hope this is what the Q20 can achieve. i dont mind paying flagship prices for something that feels luxurious and gives good performance, even with so called lesser specs. whats the point of having a 4 core processor if the browser is more sluggish? etc. but for the budget market i think they cant survive unless they heavily leverage on foxconn.

    foxconn can do amazing luxury stuff as well though... so lets see

    That 8800 is a masterpiece. Stainless, no less. BlackBerry could SO fill a niche with stuff like that.
