Although we don't have images of the forthcoming BlackBerry Q20 (or Classic), BlackBerry CEO John Chen has confirmed that the next flagship hardware keyboard device will see the return of the famous trackpad and function keys. 

As a hardcore Q10 user myself it's certainly going to feel a bit odd almost going back, but with a bigger screen on the Q20 (3.5 inch) the ability to navigate with the trackpad may well be be a godsend. 

We've not yet seen a BlackBerry 10 device with the traditional buttons and trackpad under the screen that were so iconic over the years, so it'll be interesting to see if the functionality is any different to on BlackBerry 7 handsets. 

For you hardware keyboard users is this a move you're excited about?
