BlackBerry Classic priced at $449, up for pre-orders now

BlackBerry Classic priced at $449, up for pre-orders now

They say sometimes you have to go back to actually move forward, a scenario BlackBerry perfectly demonstrates by returning to its “classic” roots. The latest BB 10 OS-running handheld from the struggling Canadian company is anything but a looker, by today’s standards.

The BlackBerry Classic’s appeal instead lies in the QWERTY physical keyboard that some may consider outdated. Others, namely business users and text message addicts, have longed for a device like this since, well, the last time BB unveiled one.
Besides, the BB Classic offers both keyboard and touch interaction, the latter on a square 3.46-inch panel with 720 x 720 pixels resolution.

Under the hood you get a generous 2 gigs of RAM for multitasking purposes, as well as a satisfactory dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. Photo buffs can probably ditch their “convenient” point-and-shoot cams for the much handier 8 MP rear snapper on the Classic, and selfie nuts shouldn’t be too vexed seeing a 2 MP slapped on the phone’s face.

The price tag, meanwhile, sounds a little rich. $449 is only 150 bucks south of Passport’s current retail cost, and there’s no comparing the two, we’re afraid.

There are no comments for this at the moment.
