    I know I am in the wrong site to be asking this question but If started this forum on CB the Blackberry users there will say they like them because they like anything with the BlackBerry brand logo.

    So I am asking this one on a Android forum. What do you think of the new BlackBerry devices set to release this fall?

    I personally think they are hideous and will only sell to BlackBerry hard core fans. I doubt these devices will make Android or iPhone users switch to BlackBerry. Here is the link to the CB article which includes pictures of all of them.

    I'm not a fan of the Passport at all and the Classic is just for nostalgic purposes in my opinion.

    Yeah im not a fan of either of them. The Classic looks exactly like a Bold 9900 with a bigger screen.The passport looks like a 80's calculator lol. But when Samsung or Apple releases similar designs to older devices BB users scream and complain. A double standard if you ask me

    The only Blackberry I've ever owned is generally acknowledged as one of the worst Blackberry devices ever: the Pearl Flip. In general, though, I think Blackberries are nice, and the new ones are actually quite powerful. Unfortunately, they were just too late to the modern smartphone party, and there's not enough to recommend them over the other mobile OSes to get the masses to switch. I just don't see them being the blockbuster they were again, but they may live on as a niche product.

    I actually sold mine for $175 lol. The Note 3 is a much better device then anything BlackBerry currently has out and im sure the Note 4 will be a better device then the Classic and Passport

    I think that they're solid devices. I'm not fond of the classic but the other two look to be of that premium build that, in my opinion, only Apple, Nokia and RIM have met. I would like to see Android get one of the really solid OEMs or for Google to create their own phone for this reason.

    Still have my z30 like the passport but the app gap and the updates to the apps is what stopping them from really being a force they have Amazon partnering up with them so well see its going to be a interesting few month for them as a company

    Those 2 devices are for a niche market. I have a feeling they will be overpriced. They need to sell their less expensive Z3 in large numbers.

    I think the classic is kind of interesting. But I like Google Services too much to use BlackBerry devices.

    Generally speaking, I really like unique form factor phones, so the Passport intrigues me. If it ran Android, I might consider it, but BB10 is a non starter for me.

    I think the intent of the Passport phone is lost in its unusual shape. People are judging it by its looks and not its most interesting feature.

    Yes thats a big problem with BlackBerry phones they are overpriced for what they offer. Example of this is they are selling the Bold 9900 on shop blackberry for $400 which is way overpriced for a 3 year old phone

    The Classic looks fine, it is a BB. The Passport looks absolutely horrible. Like stretched out picture of another device. That must be a joke.

    I think the Z3 on a worldwide scale could make a bit of a splash but not enough

    Yeah it looks exactly like the Bold 9900 with a larger screen. When Samsung and Apple release devices that look similar to an older device BlackBerry users call it not being innovative. But when BlackBerry does it they call the device beautiful SMH

    I'm sort of intrigued with the Passport keyboard. If they if fact have taken the Z10/30 keyboard experience and blend that into a physical keyboard, I would certainly give it a test ruun.

    I'm very disappointed with their being no high end flagship of the full touch variety. Could at least have given a slider like the Torch!

    The Classic is pretty nice. The Passport is so square I can't possibly fathom getting my hands around it comfortably.

    I still want to see them in person anyways, even if just out of curiosity.

    My Z10 overheated and took itself out of my lineup. -_-

    I had just bought it an extended battery. After I'd bought and sold my Q10/Z30 that happened. What luck!
