Quotes

"We are committed to earning your business,” Chen blogged, "or earning it back, if that’s the case.” Of course they are. Because Classic isn’t merely an attempt by BlackBerry to relive its old glory days as a hot smartphone maker (at least not completely). It's digging up the past to lay a foundation for the future—one that goes well beyond phones."
...Chen hopes she’s not the only one. As he wrote: "Innovation is not about blowing up what works to make something new—it’s about taking what works and making it better.” What worked for BlackBerry were phones like the Bold and Curve, with their “highly pocketable” shapes and well-designed physical keys. BlackBerry loyalists can look forward to the Q20 bringing back that renowned keyboard—not the cramped configuration jammed into the latest Passport—and the return of the trackpad, which went missing entirely on recent models. According to Chen, Classic will also come with a “bigger and sharper” display and a “growing app catalog.”"
"It's tempting in a rapidly changing, rapidly growing mobile market to change for the sake of change. But there's also something to be said for the classic adage, if it ain't broke don't fix it" Mr. Chen wrote in a post Wednesday on the company's blog
