    Secrecy is simply because they want maximum sales from the Passport. It's something new and exciting so they want to push it as much as possible

    The Classic, will definatly sell more than the Passport, simply because it's "home" to many people who are coming from BBOS and also from all qwerty users. So they don't need to market it as much.

    I don't necessarily believe there is secrecy because Chen has only really been talking about the "Classic" for most of this year.

    The focus has only been taken away due to the launch of the Passport. People need to understand, that the press will only give a limited amount of coverage to Blackberry and they need to maximise this by focusing on one device during the release phase. Hence why the Porsche design has generally been ignored as the market for it is very small.

    Chen has made numerous comments about the expectation of the "classic" device being their top earner, as it will be marketed to their "general" & enterprise users. Passport is geared towards enterprise.

    It is classic (no pun intended) marketing. Do not disclose details of your product until it's market appearance is imminent. You don't want the competition to steal your thunder. That is all it is plain and simple.
