Missing the familiar physical QWERTY keyboard on a BlackBerry phone? No problem. BlackBerry brings the BlackBerry Classic in the Philippines for loyal QWERTY fans and would-be converts.

Targeting the people who live for speed, accuracy, and productivity, the new BlackBerry Classic adopts the DNA  and familiarity of the older BlackBerry Bold 9900; it sports the iconic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard, the trackpad and classic navigation keys, stronger data security, and a battery that won’t be drained by lunch time.

At the same time, the Classic adds more to the traditional keypad experience with its up-to-date features such as the BlackBerry OS 10.3.1, bigger 3.5-inch touchscreen , faster mobile browser, and a wealth of professional and popular apps provided by the BlackBerry World and the Amazon Appstore.

Access and manage all your conversations—email, texts, BBMs, phone calls, social media, and even your calendar—from the BlackBerry Hub with just a single swipe. There are also the BlackBerry Blend that brings all the content and messages in your BlackBerry Classic to your tablet or computer, and BlackBerry’s first digital assistant for voice and text commands.


Other specifications of the BlackBerry Classic are:
