BlackBerry shows off Classic keyboard shortcuts in new video

BlackBerry shows off Classic keyboard shortcuts in new video
While the BlackBerry Classic can already be pre-ordered in the USand Canada, it won’t start shipping before December 17. Until that day comes, BlackBerry thought it would be useful to share some of the keyboard shortcuts available on the new smartphone.

Since the Classic features a traditional BlackBerry keyboard, it comes with some of the shortcuts that current or previous BlackBerry Bold users are certainly familiar with. Almost every letter on the QWERTY keyboard can be used as a shortcut for various functions (examples: long-press B to launch the browser, long-press N to launch BBM, long-press C to compose a message with BlackBerry Hub, and so on).

The Classic runs BlackBerry OS 10, and costs $449.00 (unlocked). Its features include a 3.5-inch display with 720 x 720 pixels and a decent 291 ppi density, 2 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2515 mAh battery.

At the moment, we don’t know if any US carrier is planning to offer the new BlackBerry, but we’ll let you know if we hear anything about this.
