    disagree. users do not want keyboards. they want high end phones that everyone else has. they want to use iphones, they want to use high end android. they don't want weird 'different' keyboard phones

    Gee, I'm so glad you know the hearts and minds of ALL smartphone customers, even the ones in the developing world that still use a lot of k/b devices. Also, the Blackberry Passport, which is doing quite well for a niche device, says hi. The Classic will probably do even better.

    I dont know if you're a blackberry fanboy or something, but the vast majority of users in business do not care about anything apart from how the phone looks and feels. unless you are in a business that has very strict security, most business will just go with apple/android (mostly apple).

    I'm talking about BUSINESS ENVIRONMENTS. not all users. the fact of the matter is due to the marketshare of all smartphone sales around the world, the majority prefer either apple or android. this translates even moreso into the business world, where typically businesses have made the unfortunate transition away from blackberry devices which was the norm several years ago.
