The Blackberry Classic is finally here. The device was introduced way back in February at the Mobile World Congress and was teased ages ago by the company on its official blog. Pre-orders were even about to be keyed in for a device not even released in the past ten months we’ve been waiting.
Well, the wait is now over. The Blackberry Classic, formerly known as the BlackBerry Q20 was launched in the past week. It has the signature Blackberry QWERTY keyboard and is equipped with Blackberry 10 OS out of the box.
The Classic also features the traditional Blackberry optical trackpad and measures in at 10.2mm. Weighing 178g gram, the gadget features a 3.5 inch 294ppi touch display with a graphic resolution of 720p. Powering it is a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 dual-core processor which is mated with 2GB RAM and 16 GB worth of internal memory.
Connectivity wise, the Classic has Bluetooth 4.0 LE, dual-band Wi-Fi, LTE, Miracast, and NFC. It is further equipped with an 8 megapixel auto focus main back camera that features F2.2 lens and flash. On its front is a 2 megapixel camera.
A 2515 mAh battery powers the Classic but is non-removable. No pricing has been announced and a release date for sale has yet to confirmed for our country, Malaysia. In America, the device cost about USD$449 so expect an estimated figure of MYR 1565 when the gadget does reach our shores.
