    Im using classic 1 to write this and I truly love this device, and it's my first BlackBerry. I used galaxy and lg for so many years and now I can't get enough BlackBerry! I wonder when they'll release classic 2. I'm def buying!

    No information as of now. I think release will also depends on sales figures of the current Classic.

    Well it took 2 years for a keyboard device after the Q10 at least a premium device. So my guess would be 1 to 2 years just enjoy what you have. I ordered mine on Thursday with overnight shipping classic that is. And guess what it's Friday and no device and no idea when it will be here overnight does not mean what it used to FedEx and verizon not to happy with you guys right now. So be happy you have yours in your hand don't be ungrateful lol

    Imo they should release a classic 1.1 now with same hardware but better specs. No need to wait for 2 years to reinvent the form factor. Just release a new classic this summer with better CPU to help me run android apps better, and I will buy it for sure.

    Yeah I guess you guys are right if it releases too soon it will make classic 1 users, such as myself, mad. And I seriously doubt they'll release classic hardware with better specs. I think the whole point of classic spec was to get rid of those humongous mounts of snap s4 they supposedly purchased on a bulk sale: What a shame! I think classic with better specs would've been the most perfect phone ever existed!

    Yes I guess next year would be a logical guess(if not a year after that) since BlackBerry interviewed stating there won't be a new generation of passport or classic in 2015. Thanks for your reply.

    Blackberry Passport: Released September 2014, This means we can expect the next iteration to be released: May 2016

    Blackberry Classic: Released December 2014, This means we can expect the next iteration to be released: July 2016

    that's the best guess for the moment. There is no word about any of them for 2016 so will have to wait for MWC 2016 to hear all about them

    I think you guys are over-estimating the time it took to develop the Classic. Most of it is carried over from the Q10. I expect a Classic 2 will be released next fall.

    I sure hope so. They'd better give us at least rumor by then. Btw, your device information including pin is showing in your comment. You'd better erase it. Just in case. regards

    Yeah that's true. So true it's rather saddening...;( So you think 2016 fall? I guess I can wait that long. But they'd better gimme a rumor and design concept first by end of 2015! regards

    I found the quote I was looking for:

    Article

    The Blackberry Classic is also sticking around, with Chen saying I think we will have another iteration on that.

    I think it was 100% depends on Classic sales. Don't underestimate the importance of this phone to BB's future as a hardware manufacturer. See my thread for more thoughts about this: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...onger-1004729/.

    I hope BB makes it to a Classic 2, as I will definitely buy it to replace my Classic!

    Yeah I think classic might be the phone to make BlackBerry bigger. And despite of snap f****ing s4, it's really a grt phone overall! I'd def check out your posting, thx for the link. And yes I can't be more excited abt classic 2 already! I'll so buy it. kind regards to you

    If Blackberry Classic was so important to the existence of Blackberry you would of thought they would of released it with better specs. (and they could of). So my assumption is it was released to get BB07 laggards to move onto the BB10 platform, and not as a game changing phone. So if sales of Classic do not pan out too well, i don't think BB will be in dire straights. They need to sell more Passorts, and come out with Z30 and Z10 replacements.
