    I'm a little bit disappointed that I have to wait till November... but I'm still looking forward to get one because the BlackBerry Classic will be a Bold-like BB10.

    So, it will be much more premium than the Q10 and will probably have a METAL BODY? Hope so...
    Hope the price will be right.. { 550USD +/- }

    Since 2010 ?

    I thought everyone here would have learned about metal bodies after Apple's "antennagate" fiasco. As a real world radio engineer the last thing I want is to be holding ungrounded metal which is close to or part of a transmitting antenna. I don't like RF burns. I dont like channeling microwave energy into my head and hand. And I particularly don't like the problems it causes for antenna matching and screening. Finally.... go and google "faraday cage"

    the side of the q10 is said to be metal... and the back is plastic/glass, so its far from cheap

    You think that the Q10 got a plastic bezel?! This is BS!
    Get one and check it out!!
    The build quality is more superior then the 9900.
    The frets between the lines are better quality then the bold ones...everything is better. ok I like the silver Bezel more, but Q10 is more premium.

    Yeah you still don't get it!!


    Here you go- read it carefully and loud:

    http://blogs.blackberry.com/2013/04/...ry-q10-design/

    ...The frame is carved out of solid block of forged, 304 stainless steel to make the BlackBerry Q10 strong and durable. Each frame takes 20 minutes to produce through a multi-step computer controlled machining process. The black PVD finish has been chosen to keep the frame from scratching as you keep moving with the BlackBerry Q10......

    Lol, no I didn't say that at all...
    I said q20/classic could be more premium...
    * more + premium *
    So that means, more premium than the current premium q10

    Good, but I said MORE... / a tad premium.. I know Q10 is a solid build phone and very premium but I would say the bold 9900 is a little bit more premium... just my opinion.

    And the classic will be the next "bold-like" phone...

    About your link: ... you're right that actually the q10 has a metal body too... I was meaning a Bold-like metal body....

    LOL. That was an interesting trip on the crazy train! Maybe Branta meant that in parody.

    In any case, it wouldn't surprise if they were planning a metal body, seems to be the new black this year - with many rumors of Samsung switching from their cheesy plastic. Already lots of them out there of course.

    Exactly! I've dropped my Q10 & yes it can cause damage but not as much as the 9900 did.

    ? BlackBerry Q10 ? Keep The Faith ?

    Have you ever taken apart a Samsung Galaxy phone? I repair phones and tablets as a side business.



    Look about 21 minutes in, and you'll see the big slab of aluminum that makes up the frame of a Galaxy phone. This is an S3, but the S4 and S5 are built the same way.

    Hey OP...basically what you are saying is you don't want the metal to be coloured black...

    Since it is stainless steel on the Q10 that is what you want...a METAL BODY correct? So the Q10 is already a metal body...you said you want it more like the 9900 which you feel is more premium...which to be completely honest, the only difference is that they didn't colour the metal frame, they kept the stainless steel look instead of making it black like the Q10...

    Am I correct in thinking that all you really are saying/asking/wanting is that you hope the Q20 doesn't colour the metal and keeps a nice stainless steel silver body?

    Also the 9900 backing is the woven glass or carbon fibre whatever they call it...so it is next to identical to the Q10...Not sure why you are saying the 9900 is much more premium...or even a TAD bit more premium as its basically identical to one another in materials used.

    Uh, the Q10 uses more premium materials than the legacy devices like the Bolds... The Q10's frame is made out of steel, the frets are stainless steel, and the entire back is glass weave. The Bold had a partially metal frame with a chromed plastic bottom, plastic frets, and a small glass weave battery door (laminated with plastic) surrounded by rubberized plastic...

    Yah, let's go back to that...
