Has anybody else given up an IPhone 6, a droid turbo, G3, and M8 to try out the new Blackberry? Or am I the only one?

I'll be picking up the Classic soon. I'm torn between giving up my m8 (which I really love) for the Classic or just getting it on my secondary line. It would be nice to have the best of both worlds, though. I've been drooling over the Classic since it's initial release. I can't wait to pick one up. Today I read that the white version is coming out this month followed by the bronze and blue version next month. Crossing my fingers that Verizon gets at least one of these colors.

I thought about the Classic, but only in a nostalgic way.  While the security features, physical keyboard and upgraded/updated software and hardware are nice, the screen is just too small compared to what I am accustomed to.  I think the major drawback for Android and Apple users who go to a BB will be the screen mostly.  It is nice to know that BB can run some Android apps now though.

And that is exactly why I am sticking with the blackberry. Screen size for me is no issue as I am using the Q10 but the physical keyboard helps with the amount of writing and notes I take. The phone is still one hand user friendly for me at least. But hey everybody has their own taste.

I'm with you on the security and keyboard but the screen is  a no-no.

Thinking of a Classic myself. Colors are being released, love to see Blue Classic from Verizon.

It would take more than the Classic to get me to abandon iOS and my iPhone 6. The Passport might do it though!

I'm a lifelong Mac user and the wife and kids have iPhones, so it's really the path of least resistance for me.
