BlackBerry confirms that the BlackBerry Classic is no longer being manufactured
Last week, BlackBerry denied a report stating that it had sent a letter to Verizon and AT&T about ending production of BlackBerry 10 handsets. In the letter, the company did admit that it had ended the "manufacturing cycle" of the BlackBerry Classic. Today, BlackBerry confirmed on its blog that the Classic will no longer be produced.

Ralph Pini, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager for Devices at BlackBerry, called the phone a "workhorse," but also noted that it has surpassed the lifespan of an smartphone in today's market. That is a curious thing to say considering that the phone is just a little more than 18 months old. The BlackBerry Passport is actually three months older than the Classic.


Pini did confirm that BlackBerry 10.3.3 will be pushed out next month with another update scheduled for next year. Meanwhile it seems that BlackBerry has another Android handset code named the Hamburg, that is next to be unveiled. The phone could be a re-branded Alcatel Idol 4 and be called the BlackBerry NEON.
