Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
BlackBerry’s forthcoming Classic handset is set for release on 17th December, according to CEO John Chen. Chen made the announcement at Thursday’s BlackBerry Conference, during his keynote speech.
The release of the BlackBerry Classic has been teased for months, and was initially slated for a November release. The Classic revives the company’s signature physical keyboard – the third in its history – following a series of touchscreen smartphone releases. The new model is reminiscent of the BlackBerry Bold, but with the BlackBerry 10 OS.
This more traditional BlackBerry handset will be preceded by the BlackBerry Passport, which will be available in stores on Black Friday.
