    While I'm sure they are still somewhat uncertain if this is final, it sure looks like it's written for final copy.

    Not a whole lot of surprises. Except Wireless charging (2 models only)! Very happy about that if it's true.

    Now all we need is price.

    Looks pretty much like we have been hearing.... it's not a Flagship device. It's meant to be a workhorse and affordable for enterprise budgets.

    And at this point the final copy has to have been written as this thing needs to be in production if they are planning a release for "some" markets by the end of November. Have to wonder with their scaled back production, if increased demand for the Passport will be an issue?

    Since the 'JUNE' phone..... and this one A LOT has changed... and it looks awesome.

    But a little disappointed in the specs. (even if though its not a flagship device... - BB could of atleast give us a little 'kick' in power)

    I hope the inclusion of wireless charging pleases some of the folks who are upset about the charging contacts missing. Assuming they can get their hands on that model.

    The battery specs are still a little suspect.. what's with the "2,515mAh Minimum" does that mean only some models will have that? And others will have a rumoured 3,150mAh monster?

    Dunno. I heard battery sizes are actually listed in ranges. I don't know more than that. At least It says minimum

    Nice... I didn't know the Z30 has wireless charging capable . I'm on Verizon too. I have unlimited data so I have to buy it full retail price. My guess the Classic will price at $599.

    Leak says it will be 10.2 mm thick, thats thicker then my Z30 which i already find too thick and a full mm thicker then the passport, hopefully its tapered to fit nicely in the hand.

    So, I would have to buy -2 to get wireless charging and for AT&T correct? I hope they let you specify when this comes out on Amazon...

    Thats true and I'm happy about that, the only saving grace for me with the Classic would be "Massive Battery & Wireless charging" if BlackBerry put a 2,815 or 3,150 mAh battery in the classic. I might over look all the other Q10 and Z10 similarities

    178g? A tad bit on the heavy side compared to others isn't it? Z10 = 137.5g & Q10 = 139g

    It's about 8 grams more than the Z30 too, I think. That doesn't surprise me--physical keys, buttons, and their switches plus what looks like a stainless steel exterior band would certainly all bump the weight up. If they stick a 3000+ mAH battery in there it'll probably be even heavier..... but totally worth it.

    I don't care about thickness, I don't care about weight! Put a 4000mah battery in this fella and I'm going to spend all my money on it...

    Just spoke to a CIO and he told me the most hated thing about the crappy devices they manage besides BlackBerry is the battery!

    Pump up the battery and BlackBerry is back in business!

    I agree. So disappointed. I was wanting to upgrade myz10, not downgrade.

    The iphone 6 has 1.4 gz dual core processor and 1gb of ram. It will perform like a beast. The classic will have a 1.5gz dual core with 2 gb of ram and so will it.

    I don't care if you guys don't want to upgrade but enough with the "I only care about specs". We're blackberry fans for God's sake. We always argued function over over form, and all of a sudden we are spec hounds?

    Get the classic because of the toolbelt and a bigger screen on a qwerty. Otherwise enough venting about the specs. 1.7 gz wouldn't make any realistic difference on a 3.5 inch screen.

    I am seriously concerned about these (almost official) rumoured specs. This is basically a downgraded Q10 with a belt, the screen is actually a downgrade. If we're going larger to a 3.5" screen from the 3.1" AND KEEPING the the same screen resolution, we are DOWNGRADING on the screen! we are losing clarity and PPI. That coupled with the fact we are now getting an LCD instead of the Q10's AMOLED - this is poor. No removeable battery, no HDMI out. This is very poor.

    The only justification for such a move would be to market this thing at a real budegt price, yes budget, not even mid-tier, you cant justify that with such a downgrade. If this device is not sub 350 SIM free BlackBerry can go f**k themselves.

    I love my Q10 and I have a Passport too (seelling it though, prefer my Q10), but i am not an ***** nor a fanboy. I was Android for about 5 years before returning back to Blackberry with the Q10, so pleased with what Chen has done here. But this is a disapointment, they cant do this to the Classic.

    All, of course, if the rumoured specifications are correct that is. Lets hope we're all wrong. A 960x960 screen would sit very well with this device.

    EDIT: just to keep things clear; i am not a spec *****. I could not care less about the latest quadruple octa core in the latest samsung, i know my Q10 runs silky smooth and will run better than the samsung. But i will not be taken as a mug, dont market this device as a successor to the Q10, dont market it as a 'new' device upgrading on the old. This is not an upgrade in any way shape or form and has many DOWNGRADES as compared to its predecessors. This is unjustifiable in my view.
