Blackberry Announces The $450 Classic, A QWERTY Throwback

A successor to the BlackBerry Bold 9900 the new Blackberry Classic hearkens back to the days when men were men, women were women, and smartphones were QWERTY. The $450 phone has a full keyboard and 3.5-inch square touchscreen. It also has an 8-megapixel camera and a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor. Who is this for? It’s for folks who won’t give up their Blackberries and who are looking for a bit of an upgrade. And, in all honesty, it’s the smartest move Blackberry has made in years.
