BlackBerry World posts promo for the BlackBerry Classic
This morning, visitors checking into BlackBerry World might have been excited to see a promotional ad on the top of their screen, showing a partial image of the BlackBerry Classic. This is the handset with the old-school trackpad and function keys, but with many of the modern capabilities that BlackBerry 10.3 can offer.
For those long-time 'Berry users for whom the BlackBerry Passport is just too much (too much screen, too much technology, too much phone), the Classic might be just what the Doctor ordered. Considering that BlackBerry still derives a large percentage of sales from its legacy BlackBerry OS 7 models, fans of the platform have been calling for this handset.
The promo for the BlackBerry Classic on BlackBerry World reads, "The smartphone you trust, with the power you couldn't imagine," and includes a link to a site where you can register your interest in the phone. This way, you can receive information about the handset, and be notified when pre-orders are being accepted. The old-school 'Berry should be launched next month.
