A Classic Way Of Goodbye

We all know what BlackBerry is and what BlackBerry does, and for more than a decade, this smartphone company turned into a full-pledged software maker is making an announcement. And yes, they are closing a door for one of their smartphones, just to open a new one. The BlackBerry Classic, as the name implies, a classic smartphone that was created by BlackBerry for its fans and former users will be making an exit to the company to give way for a much better android alternatives. Announced by the COO of the company today, Mr. Ralph Pini said that "For many years, Classic (and its BBOS predecessors) has been in our portfolio. It has been an incredible workhorse device for customers, exceeding all expectations. But, the Classic has long surpassed the average lifespan for a smartphone in today’s market. We are ready for this change so we can give our customers something better – entrenched in our legacy in security and pedigree in making the most productive smartphones."

He also mentioned that, if the Classic is still your device of choice and wants to get a good grip on it before it finally goes away, you can check out your local carriers and shop BlackBerry for the unlocked versions until supplies lasts. So I guess this is it, we are going back for those full-glass, free poking devices that we are having for the last, I don't know, maybe since Apple introduced the iPhone and Samsung introduced its Android. But to all those who are still hoping for a device with a physical keyboard soon, don't worry, BlackBerry said that they will be releasing an Android-based smartphone with a physical keyboard, that will surely satisfy your craving.
