BlackBerry Classic Available For Pre Order In UK
BlackBerry have announced on their website that the new BlackBerry Classic is available for preorder in the UK. Many believe that this new smartphone could very well be the device to kick start BlackBerry’s revival. Classic by name and Classic by nature as it reverts back to a similar design to the oh so popular BlackBerry smartphone’s.
The pre order page on the BlackBerry website says “We heard you and we built it,”
BlackBerry’s vice-president of global product management, Francois Mahieu said recently: “The message is ‘we hear you’. You told us you love keyboards, you love your BlackBerry. You told us that maybe the Q10 was just a little bit difficult to use. And therefore, we are bringing back that utility belt that is the trademark of BlackBerry. That is effectively some of the hard keys, the trackpad and menu button that make a BlackBerry phone easier to use. And bringing the flow of old BlackBerry OS, where you can easily navigate between emails and going back to your home screen.”
He added “It might sound like a u-turn, but it’s not. Customers are saying, ‘Bring back the utility belt, please make the user navigation the way it used to be’ and that’s what we’re doing.”
The BlackBerry Classic can be yours from £349.00
