    ...does it even exist? Seen many images of it online, but can't seem to find one anywhere (not in the UK at least...)

    Most likely somewhere behind a glass pane or in some warehouse. I'm somewhat convinced that some people have some of them, but insiders or super wealthy. The Bronze was likely a hyper limited run and it would have been produced if the Classic would have allowed the company to gain traction. Someone also mentioned that the elusive P'9984 (based on Passport) is used by a small circle of insiders and it seems plausible. Why wouldn't it? Just as they handed out prototypes, they might as well handed out (but not for free, my guess) these limited runs without public fuss. I might be mistaken, but the entire scenario seems to have some ground.

    Yeah thought that was the case, it just seems weird that they showed the Blue and Bronze at the same time yet only released the Blue one... would really like to see how it would have looked - but probably released to the super-elite (like the black-and-gold version)

    I used to NOT want the Brown Classic... But now... I would be ready... IF they decide "why not?" and release it on a whim I would definitely purchase it...

    I'm pretty sure I saw a brown/bronze battery cover on ebay, but I don't seem to find it at the moment. I did find a keyboard though.

    If you're into tinkering and you really want that bronze look I guess you could get the keyboard and search the web until you get your hands on a matching battery cover. UKarbon sell some nice skins so I guess you could stick a brown one on the back of your device.

    I'd love to make a black and blue Classic. A black screen border is preferable anyway.

    That was my thought also, the blue one would look so nice with a black border around the screen instead of the body coloured one! The Classic itself is a beautiful device, it's a shame they charged so much for it. Anyway, I'm debating between the white and blue one... the black one is sleek, but I already have a 9900 in black so I guess a little colour variation won't hurt!

    Just remember that the Classic is a little more difficult to disassemble than previous handsets. You'll need glue for the battery.

    It seems like a fun project now that BB10 is kind of on life support. I'll do it if I can find a blue rear cover.

    No worries, I disassembled plenty of phones before including full touch ones so that's not an issue. I like tinkering with my devices! Yes, it's truly unfortunate the turn of events with BlackBerry 10...but we'll see what happens in 2017.
