Canada to get BlackBerry Classic Soon


Update: The Blackberry Classic is available today at Rogers, Virgin Mobile, Sasktel, WIND Mobile and more! Several¬†different Canadian wireless companies have confirmed that the Blackberry Classic will be coming “soon” to Canadians everywhere. Rogers, Bell, Virgin Mobile and SaskTel all three have given the green light. The BlackBerry Classic will likely be around the $500 mark without a contract and has some pretty good specs:
  • 3.5 inch touchscreen display
  • BlackBerry 10.3.1 OS
  • 1.5 GHz dual core processor
  • 8 MP back camera, 2 MP front camera
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 – 32 GB memory
  • microSD slot
  • LTE band compatibility
Unlike many other everyday phones, the BlackBerry brand is all about helping get business done and recently has had something of a revival of interest with the BlackBerry Classic and the unique BlackBerry Passport, a square phone. I’ll keep you informed if any of the companies post a release date for the phone, so check back! If you don’t want to wait, you can preorder the BlackBerry classic on their website. Shipping is expected to begin soon.]]>
