    Hi guys,

    someone knows what happened to the Bronze/Brown version of the BB Classic presented months ago?

    do you think or know if it will be released during 2016 or if has been cancelled?

    to me that one was the most beautiful Classic... hopefully they will release it, at least as a special or final edition

    what do you think?

    ps: if this is the wrong section please move it, thanks

    Tale your pick from this site. That's the closest you'll get to a bronze classic. Sorry.

    Looks fine to me. Looks like the ghost armor I have. Doubt those classic phones are hitting the market. Not enough sales to warrant them

    I was just wondering about that phone the other day.

    I'd say it's been cancelled. The original Classic came out over a year ago. Seems kind of late for them to be releasing the bronze. They don't even sell a white haha.

    It's sad to see that stuff like the bronze Classic, cross-platform BBM video calling, and the Priv shown with BlackBerry 10 running on it (during the initial announcement) will never see the light of day.

    I remember that John Chen said a Classic 2 and Passport 2 would be made, but now I'm guessing they'll just be Androids.

    yes that's sad... Bronze would be the best color....
    a Classic 2, Bronze, trackpad + sensitive touch keyboard, Priv's camera, better processor and ram, and a slightly bigger screen (let's say 3.7") in the same size of the actual Classic, would be just perfect...
    I know, I'm dreaming...

    You: "Where is the Classic-Bronze model?"
    BBRY: "Where is the proof that if we are gonna build it there will be enough people buying it?"

    Other than that, I too believe that it would have been a good combo

    For what it's worth, you can buy bronze keyboards on ebay now (cobalt as well).

    Neat find. This means the bronze was at least produced on some scale. I wonder if the full housing will show up. But as I seem to remember, the classic is a tough teardown with lots of tape and glue. So it might not be easy to get a homemade bronze classic.

    If BlackBerry introduces a bronze Classic now people will complain that it has 4 year old specs. BlackBerry should have came out with the black, white, red, blue, and bronze (gold) Classic from the beginning. And also with an updated processor; at least the speed of the Z30, but the Passport processor would have been even better.

    Maybe the bronze prototype will show up on ebay one day.

    The back plate pops off "relatively" easy and the rest is not too bad. If the parts are there it would be fun. Not cost-effective, but fun.

    Definitely agreed. And you'd have one of the only Bronze classics on the planet.
