Best Buy Canada is taking in-store pre-orders for the BlackBerry Classic
Last week, BlackBerry started taking pre-orders for the Classic, priced at $449. But that price is without a signed contract, and the phone does not work with the Verizon, Sprint and U.S. Cellular pipelines. Which means that in the U.S., it will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile's networks.
BlackBerry now has quite a set of bookends for the holiday shopping season. The BlackBerry Passport is the power packed business-centric handset that offers a wide-screen display, perfect for spreadsheets, maps and email. The BlackBerry Classic is made for users who like to type on a no nonsense physical QWERTY keyboard. The Classic brings back the function keys (call, menu, trackpad, back, and end buttons) and a trackpad.
