    What would you all think of blackberry made a version of the passport with BB7 instead? Personally, I think it would be a great device if it was based on qnx instead of java. To sell well though, I would say that it would have to be priced around $150

    Why would BlackBerry go backwards?

    Yea I'm serious. BB7 might not have all the glitz and glamour that BB10 has, but it is a very excellent messaging operating/productivity operating system. The touch sensitive keyboard would be a perfect fit.

    I would be happy to see a new BB OS device but not a passport version. Would the OS even work on such a handset?

    I'd say the better idea would be to improve the productivity / communication features of BB10. I imagine that it is not strictly speaking BBOS7 that you want, but rather some features that you miss.

    That's kinda what I'm saying. BB10 is to much for some people. So the messaing purpose of BB7 + the keyboard of the passport would be a perfect device for some. It could have its own customized OS, like BB8/9 for instance.

    Me personally, I really like BB10. It would just be nice to see the passport with a different BBOS

    I find BBOS7 so frustrating to use compared to BB10. I'm sorry but I don't think this would be a good idea at all.

    I can't believe anyone would prefer BB7 to BB10. It is an old slow crappy operating system. The fact BlackBerry stayed with it so long is the reason the company almost fell off the face of the earth. I mean it's down to 1% in most countries. It's time to drop all this save BB7 nonsense.

    Definitely not a good idea in my opinion. I don't even think the second run of the 9900 was a good idea.

    BlackBerry 7.1 may have been slow but man it was reliable. It was great in its time.

    Yes it was. And BlackBerry need to work to bring the same features and reliability to BB10. I think they need to commit to BB10 and stop with the BBOS. It's hurting the company.

    I would be so happy if they did exactly as you just said. Miss so many of the features. With BB10 ir should on have been possible to have everything 7.1 was plus speed plus more.
