T-Mobile slashes BlackBerry Classic prices by $70, grab one now for $369.99
Back in April 2014, T-Mobile and BlackBerry engaged in a head-on dispute when BlackBerry decided not to renew T-Mobile's contract that allowed the carrier to sell BlackBerry phones. All of that ended this May, when T-Mobile started selling the BlackBerry Classic through its stores. If you've been holding out to purchase a BlackBerry Classic until a good deal rears its head, today is the day.

T-Mobile has just dropped the price of the BlackBerry Classic to $369.99, which is almost $70 off the handset's previous price of $439.92. If you'd rather pay for the phone as you go, you can grab the BlackBerry Classic from T-Mobile for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $15.42.

In case you need a refresh on the BlackBerry Classic, the traditional-looking BlackBerry handset comes with a 3.5-inch display that runs at a resolution of 720 by 720 pixels, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of microSD-expandable integrated storage space, and a 2515mAh battery. In the camera department, the BlackBerry Classic is equipped with an 8MP primary shooter and a 2MP front-facing camera. 

Although the Classic comes with all of the trademark design characteristic of historical BlackBerry handsets such as the 2011 Bold 9900, including here a tool belt, a physical keyboard, and a trackpad, the Classic runs BlackBerry 10 as the operating system, meaning that the handset can also run Android apps.

At $369.99, T-Mobile is currently offering the BlackBerry Classic at a slightly lower price compared to BlackBerry's online shop, where the Classic goes for $379.

What do you guys think of this deal? Will you take advantage of it to snag the BlackBerry Classic?
