BlackBerry sells out its pre-order inventory of the BlackBerry Classic in North America
Despite the success of the BlackBerry Passport, the large number of multi-platform users of BBM, and the wide ranging Mobile Device Management capabilities of BES12, you still think that CEO John Chen hasn't turned the company around? Well then, you need to chew on the latest hot flash from Waterloo. BlackBerry's online store has sold all of its inventory of the BlackBerry Classic that wasset aside for pre-orders in North America.

Unlike the Passport, which is obviously made for the enterprise with its wide screen and unique touch-enabled QWERTY, the BlackBerry Classic is built for those yearning for the old fashioned BlackBerry hardware, infused with the latest BlackBerry OS. Returning to the handset is the optical touchpad, and the familiar function keys such as send/end, back, and menu. And of course, there is that popular BlackBerry QWERTY that many call the best physical keyboard ever to grace a smartphone.

Priced at $449 directly from BlackBerry, this variant of the device works in the U.S. on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks. Carrier-specific versions will be announced later. Those who were able to pre-order the device should see it ship very soon. Those who missed out on pre-ordering the handset, will be happy to know that inventory of the BlackBerry Classic is expected to be replenished sometime early next month.

Meanwhile, the BlackBerry Classic is still listed as being available on BlackBerry's online store in the U.K., France and Germany/
