    which would you buy Passport or Classic

    Hi, with the new passport and Classic due out soon, interested to hear members thoughts on which one you might buy and why?
    personally i am going for the classic to replace the Bold 9900 which i have had a trouble free six months using it,
    my Z10 and Z30 are both excellent, but i like to use a real keyboard and have tried Q10/Q5 but the Bold has spoiled me with it's keyboard,
    as for the Passport it looks interesting but will wait and see videos of it in action then decide,
    hopefully these new phones will sell in large numbers and keep Blackberry in the phone business,
    looking to reading your thoughts,

    These choices are terrible if you ask me. The Passport is too big and the Classic seems like a step backwards with the addition of the 'Belt". I realize these devices are targeted to a specific market and I don't fall within either of them.
    Full touch for me please.

    I'm on the Z10 at the moment, and its been a good device, coming from the 9900. I've adjustd well I think. I was disappointed by some of the minor things that were discussed heavily early on, but never made it into the Z10, but are in the Q10. Then came the devastating news that we wouldn't get the Z30. If the Passport is available via the carrier, or direct from BB at a reasonable price, then I want it. If not, then I'll have to make some tough decisions.

    The Passport seems to be the middle ground for touch screen and keyboard users.

    I like how the focused more on the screen. But I'm just a full touchscreen kind of user.

    I wanted the Q10...settled for the Z10. I've decided that when I replace my Z10 it will be with a Classic. I always liked the physical keyboard...just hated the outdated and antiquated OS. Now that OS 10 is out my one cirticism of BlackBerry is gone.

    So I'm saving my pennies for the Classic.
