    And why the Classic over the Passport?

    I'm kind of curious.

    Mod if this has already been asked move it.

    The 9900 was my favourite phone. I just needed to be a little bit bigger IMO. I'm currently using a z10 which I really like, but I really miss the 9900's form factor, trackpad and physical keyboard.

    I never really considered the passport due to its size and lack of trackpad.

    Can't wait to get my classic. I'm sure I will be using it for years.

    Before I had the 9700 and I was never be able to type on it cause it was to small. Hoping the classic will be better.
    Today I am a Can-US driver. In January I will be using it for spreadsheet.

    I'm currently using a Z10 but I miss the keyboard. One of my close friends got the Passport and I got to play around with it. I love it but I want the Classic because of the trackpad. If the Passport had a trackpad I would have gotten it. Of course because of the business I'm in I have to consume a lot of video media, I have to view those on a computer. No phone could work for me to view video. My phone is an extension of my office, knocking out email, making calls, edit documents etc. My 9930 did that very very well and with the Classic looking similar it should be the same or even better.

    So, even though if the passport would come with full k-board and track pad, it would still be to big!

    Passport is too big and bulky for me. Upgrading to Classic from my 9310 Curve, should be one heck of an upgrade, heh.

    One more 9900 addict here, nothing better invented so far.
    Hope Classic will not disappoint me.
    Passport is not an option for me, as I drive a lot.
    I need a one hand operated phone.

    I'm using a Z30 and I used it both hands. It is hard with one hand. I suppose it'll be the same thing with the classic . Will see when it's here

    That's they key! Communication device. I don't want to play games. Just email, Text, BBM, Whatsapp, and a good web browser and media player. That's all I need in life. I have a Passport now. It is not nimble at all.

    Project Manager. I loved my 9930 and have a Q now. I miss the tool belt. I need email, BBM, calendar, text, and phone above all other functions and/or apps except for BlackBerry Travel. And a long battery life.

    I have a Curve in the oil business. They are making us change to Windows phones or iphones. I am the last one at my facility still holding on to the BB. I will get the Classic for a personal phone.

    Was a Senior System Analyst supporting pipeline control systems for a major Canadian oil and gas company, now retired. Tried the Passport and it was too big for me. Have a Z30 but still miss the keyboard and functionality of the 9900. I hope that the Classic brings back the functionality of the original with the new software and with a larger screen.

    Have used Z10, Q10, and Z30. Always come back to the Q10. Going for the Classic for two reasons. One because I want to stick to a physical keyboard and two because I'm hoping the "Home" button will replace long-pressing?

    Probably not all of it (functionality) at first. Might come over time.
