    For BlackBerry, I think they're pretty "huge" still. If they have 47 million active users, I've bet at least 35 million of them are on one of those devices. Classic is another attempt to get them to upgrade instead of switch.
    True. I didn't really consider that number. If even half of them were enticed by the Classic it would be a home run for BlackBerry.

    Much easier to convince those guys to upgrade than an iOS or Android user to switch over.
    Yes, although you never know how much "slab fatigue" might be out there.

    Some have a gap between the toolbelt buttons and some don't. Which one is correct?

    According to BlackBerry Canada Online Store - BlackBerry Classic (Pre-Order) , supported LTE bands are only: FD-LTE: 1,2,4,5,7,13,17,25.

    Highly disappointed that they didn't include two crucial LTE bands 3 and 20 which would have covered most of Europe and Africa.

    On the other hand, Blackberry Passport included band 3 and band 20.... I do not know why they didn't introduce this for the Classic.

    Blackberry did not keep international travellers in mind. It was annoying to be stuck to 3G only when I was travelling in Europe with my Z30.

    Is it that expensive to add two extra bands? Would have helped with moving and reallocating inventory around.

    iPhone 6 covers almost all the bands in the world. (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29)

    Will probably not be buying the Blackberry classic. May just switch to iPhone once my Z30 dies...

    I'm really looking forward to trying the Classic out. On pictures though, I can't help but think the toolbar is a bit too small. Maybe it doesn't matter as much for the call buttons, but I'm curious to see how good the trackpad will work. Also, like on the touchscreen Bold's, it seems it would benefit having more space between the touchscreen and the trackpad so gestures to one don't carry over to the other.

    Guess I'll have to wait to try it in person.

    This phone looks amazing! I worry that the screen is too small, but its bigger than my Q10, so I would have to see one in person. Any idea when ATT will begin selling the device?

    If the screen is too small why not get a passport ? Classic will be the second biggest 1:1 screen BlackBerry ever made.

    It looks beautiful. I'll be purchasing one when it's released locally, and will make it my primary phone. I'm currently using a Passport and will relegate it to secondary phone status when I get my Classic.

    I'd call that kind of a sucker bet. The Classic is priced at about half the Passport's cost. Passport is a high-end "executive" device where the Classic is a corporate workhorse.

    Kind of like saying that you expect the Mercedes-Benz E class to outsell the S class...

    Looks brilliantly crafted. That's what I always loved about BB when they craft a great device it stands out. How amazingly odd will you look handling this beauty, the amount of questions coming in will be enough for advertisement of this device.

    I'm not a fanboy and I'm not trying to be, and I agree, thickness does not matter to me either.

    I also don't understand this race to slim phones. Indeed if anything, I rather have a phone of "managable" thickness with extended battery life. Too thin for me is less "managable", so more difficult to handle.

    As far as thickness, I think the 8000 series was just perfect. Sometimes I think even my bold 9900 is way too thin.

    Unfortunately, Classic's screen has same resolution (720 x 720). So, bigger screen will not mean more content/more lines of content.


    I wish the screen showed just a bit more content like another couple of lines of emails in HUB, another few lines of chat-messages. 15 - 20%.
    for that would mean bigger screen

    The Blackberry CEO even stated that was the plan... just like fewer Porsche autos than mid size BMW sales
    ... both awesome, but different target audience and price range... imo. Both great choices!!

    actually 10.3.1 makes the difference. you will see those 2-3 lines more with the classic but also with the Q10

    Did they manage to light up the track pad at least? It will be really dull looking without that and have a strange dark spot in the middle of the phone at night.

    Thinking the same thing. Hope the track pad lights up. Haven't seen a picture of that yet.
