It's here! Meet BlackBerry Classic, the legitimate successor to the company's Bold series. The BlackBerry Classic is about what we've expected on the design front.
It has the award winning keypad and trackpad users are used to. The Classic (Q20) is now up for pre-order for $449, and shipments are expected to start sometime in December 2014. The BlackBerry Classic will be in the US, and pre-orders start today.
Running on BlackBerry 10 and featuring the trackpad and QWERTY-keypad, the phone has been designed for true BlackBerry fans.
"BlackBerry Classic is built for serious communicators, for those who need to be productive, to be busy and to get things done. The highly anticipated device is a familiar form factor with a QWERTY keyboard, navigation keys, a trackpad and the upgraded power and performance of BlackBerry 10," the company wrote on its official blog.
The BlackBerry Classic was originally unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) earlier this year. Apparently, BlackBerry is yet to confirm the complete spec sheet of the device.
The Classic will boast a 3.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels. It will run the latest version of BlackBerry 10 mobile OS.
According to several reports, BlackBerry will officially launch the device at an event in New York on December 17. So far the BlackBerry Classic is available for pre-order in the US.
