    Classic BB Body, New BB Features

    Advertisement



    What would be cool is to have all of the newer BB features (camera, wifi, expandable memory, updated processor, outstanding screen, 4.2 OS, etc.) in the body style of the classic BB (like the 6230, 7230, 7290). Then you could be a BB "purist", have the spread out old-style QWERTY keys etc. It would be called the "BlackBerry with all the New Stuff but for People that want to Live in the Past" (Blackberry NSPLP)

    Nice idea I believe without a doubt someone will come out with this device in the next year or so.

    I totally agree with you guys!
    A fool always finds a greater fool to admire him. Fools admire, but men of sense approve.

    I've always like the look and feel of the 7290. I'm in.

    Re: Classic BB Body, New BB Features

    I have always been an avid promoter of a full qwerty fone being a Full qwerty fone with space for all human users not just for those with small hands to be able to type a lot on them.

    Everyone seems to be so bent on smaller and smaller fones that it finally caught on to the smartfones and now to RIM and the blackberry.
    I am afraid that at this rate of the desire to make everything smaller and smaller smartfones in the near future they will make blackberries so thin and so small most people won't be able to type as many emails comfortable and hassle free any more.what
    And I don't it is like requesting to make a HD blk and white tv.we don't want to get rid of new better technology but why does that mean that we have to sacrifice the comfort and ease of which we use the blackberry.the 7290 is the most durable most scratch resitant body rim has made keys are greatly laid out and very well spaced I could type on that thing for days w/out finger pain.with my 8700 which I love with better lcd and other improvements gives me finger cramps when I type very long emails and sms messages back and forth.why is it that to get better features and improvements we have to get more and more cramped keyboards less space and durability.all the 7290 body needs is the 8700's lcd and the 8830's Internals.which should fit just fine with all that extra space.just my 2 Cents

    I, too, like the 7290 body style and keyboard. I guess I'm just sick that way. Count me in. Though I am loving the thinness that is the 8300.

    Like most I admit the main draw of the 8700 (for me at least) was the screen (oh, the screen) and the fast 312Mhz processor (You could rifle through emails so fast your head would spin) - much improved over the 50Mhz ARM we have in the 7290. And double the memory (64MB vs. 32MB) didn't hurt.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I came from the 7290 form, but now I'm using the 8800. I must emphasize as much as I like my old 7290, I'm getting use to my 8800. I like the sleek black look. My point is "change is inevitable" and it's ok to move on.

    I was a bit thrown by the 8800's keyboard at first and almost junked it to stay "old school".....but after several months with it I could never go back...I have big hands and never thought that cramped keys on the 8800 could ever work for me....I could not have been more wrong!
    OG blackberry user...in love with the 8800

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ not a huge fan of the "classic" bb bodies like the 72XX series, but the new features packed in to an 8700 shell- heck yes!

    No thanks! Don't want the garage door.opener! I like the new ones much better. I wouldn't have switched to BB if not for the cool new look! Just my opinion tough.
