Want a BlackBerry Classic? It can ship by Christmas if you buy it from Amazon
At the moment, the Classic is offered only unlocked in the US, costing $449 - $150 less than the Passport. AT&T and Verizon will both carry the Classic, but only starting early 2015 (for prices that haven’t been unveiled).
Similar to some of BlackBerry’s older smartphones, the Classic comes with a hardware QWERTY keyboard and a trackpad, and can be seen as a successor to 2011’s BlackBerry Bold 9900. The Classic runs BlackBerry 10.3.1 OS, sports a 3.5-inch display with 720 x 720 pixels, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
