More pictures of the BlackBerry Classic are here for your perusal
Last week, we showed you a pair of pictures of the upcoming BlackBerry Classic. This handset includes a physical QWERTY keyboard, one of the features that BlackBerry is noted for. It also includes an old-school trackpad and function keys that had been removed on the new BlackBerry models. The function keys offer four user options: Send, End, Menu and Back.

This model was designed for those who love the design and capabilities of BlackBerry OS 7 models like the BlackBerry Bold 9900, but would prefer the newer BlackBerry OS 10 to be driving their phone. Consider that in last year's third quarter, 3.2 million of the 4.3 million phones sold by BlackBerry were OS 7 models.

The BlackBerry Classic is expected to launch in November, and the official specs have not been released. We could see a 3.5 inch screen on the handset, along with 2GB of RAM inside and a 2515mAh battery powering up the model. The back panel is made of rubber, and the casing is made of aluminum. Check out the latest pictures of the phone, which you will find in the slide show below.

I be getting both the classic and passport. Good Lord I love blackberry and frankly speaking I be using a dumb phone if blackberry wasn't available anymore. Love my Q10's and the passport and classic better be available asap.

The top half definitely does NOT look like the Galaxy S5... As Rain017 said: "go home, you're drunk".

its a perfect fit for those users upgrading from the bb7 devices. they get the new bb10.3 without loosing the quick buttons and trackpad.

Had blackberry before and it took me 5 years before replacing it. This new classic should be able to outperform the durability of the previous classic and they get my money.

Nice! This phone is definitely throwback to the days of the BlackBerry Bold with the awesome OS that is BB10. The Classic should indeed bring the BBOS7 holdouts over to BB10. I'm eagerly awaiting the release of this handset as I will be purchasing this as well as the BlackBerry Passport!

... and while Samsung and Apple are at each other's throats again, BlackBerry is working on something fun and neat, away from the scene. Wishing BlackBerry all the best on a quick turnaround.

Many people (including me) loved the past Blackberry models, which means this should be a seller.
