    Hey!

    So after some more feedback, it looks like a TON of people want to see what a BlackBerry Classic could look like with a curved keyboard instead of a straight one, like the 9900 opposed to the Q10.

    Below, is a rendering of the curved keyboard version. I have also attached my revamped ones with the straight keyboard.

    Let me know which one you prefer!

    Personally, I'd pick the straight keys 9 times out of 10. I think they look more suited to the overall design of the phone. I also cannot see BlackBerry putting a curved keyboard on the Classic, simply because it's likely to stay on par with BB10 OS's keyboard designs.

    *Again, you do not have permission to use, claim or distribute these renderings unless given direct consent from myself. Please contact me directly If you would like to share these elsewhere. Thanks!*

    I quite like the curved ones, but I am torn between the two. Still pick the curved one...

    Also prefer the curved keyboard. As long as it had a silver bezel, I'm good.

    I can't wait for the Q20 to come out!

    I love the straight one!! Looks so muchh pro!!But no leather back- the Q10 glasswave is a lot better.
    Maybe they could sell OEM Backs- leather, Glasswave etc.

    I like your idea of having a choice. I miss the leather back. It gave this luxury feeling to it.

    Agreed. Glass weave back as well on the Q20! No need for a case when with the glass weave Imo.

    Curved keyboard and glassweave back!

    Brilliant rendering. It looks gorgeous. I think this is my new favorite Q10 concept! I'd buy 2 of the curved-keyboard version.

    Where is the '10' in BlackBerry 10?

    Not one 10 number next to the BlackBerry symbol. On the front nor the case

    BlackBerry doesn't have to do anything so radical but there needs to be a BlackBerry 10 website. You heard me WWW.BLACKBERRY10.COM
    If BlackBerry are heading towards BES10.

    They have to differentiate between past and present.

    BlackBerry...Get it done!!

    Honestly I've gotten used to them both at this point so whichever one would give me the most screen size with the belt I'm good with that!!

    Is this a new BlackBerry 10 device? How would we know?

    Is this a new operating system built from scratch? How would we know?

    Let's all think about this.....

    WHERE is the '10' in BlackBerry 10?

    I have seen no markings saying 10 anywhere not even in the start up sequence.

    Put an exponents (to the power of 10) in the top right hand corner of the symbol.

    Then people will know it's a new BB10 device not the old one.

    It says BlackBerry 10 at the boot screen...

    The new Designs are self explained that it's a new BlackBerry 10. Ever know a BlackBerry Z30 to look like anything 'BlackBerry' before? See a track ball? No? Then it's not an "old" BlackBerry.

    The new BlackBerry Classic will be the line to carry the previous style navigation buttons, but by no means does it make BlackBerry 10 devices unidentifiable.

    I think you're picking at nothing, and being a tad too extreme. No need to spam up forums with your inane rants.

    Both are gorgeous, but I think the straight KB is more appropriate BB10 style to offset the legacy features (trackpad etc)

    They are Renderings only (see thread title). Meaning that they are fan-created images, not photos of anything real yet.
    That you thought they WERE real, simply shows how talented DYLANHABKIRK is. Both images are gorgeous and equally realistic.

    I'm loving the leather back. That was one of my favorite parts of the 9000.
