BlackBerry Classic, the newest smartphone offering from BlackBerry, was officially launched recently during an event in New York City. As its name implies, the BlackBerry Classic is decidedly old-school, at least in terms of appearance.
As a matter of fact, it is the first BlackBerry handset released in three years that actually looks like your standard BlackBerry. Which means that it features a QWERTY keyboard replete with physical navigation keys, plus a touch trackpad.
This news should delight BlackBerry fans. The new BlackBerry Classic is now available for pre-ordering at BlackBerry's online store. For American buyers, the device is priced at $449 for a GSM unlocked version with support for LTE (bands 1/2/4/5/7/13/17/25) and HSPA (bands 1/2/4/5/6). The Classic is BlackBerry's fourth smartphone offering this year. It joins other 2014 releases such as the Z3, the P'9983, and the BlackBerry Passport. Although BlackBerry is already accepting pre-orders for the Classic right now, the device will actually be officially launched on December 17th this year. As seen on its pre-order page, the BlackBerry Classic is only available in a few select markets. Also, the device will not work on Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and US Cellular networks.
