For Indian lovers of that classic BlackBerry form factor, here's some good news. BlackBerry has finally decided to launch the Classic in the subcontinent today. Furthermore, the device is already available to buy, so you don't have to wait one moment longer if you've been craving it.
The BlackBerry Classic is up for grabs at Snapdeal and at all BlackBerry Exclusive Stores. To get the latest iteration of a candybar BlackBerry with a full physical QWERTY keyboard underneath the screen, you'll need to pay INR 31,990. That translates into approximately $517 or €444.
The Classic was made official last year as the successor to the Q10 from 2013. It comes with a 3.5-inch 720x720 touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP secondary cam, and support for Cat.4 LTE (with theoretical peak download speeds of 150Mbps).
It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait CPU and Adreno 225 GPU. It has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 2,515 mAh battery. It runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.1.
Surely this one will get a price drop in half a year or so and then would be wise to buy it. Apart from looks it's not so smart.
I have become callous to all these haters sprouting all over whenever there is an article here about blackberry, and what is common among these haters are their arrogance and ignorance. I will take myself as a comparison to these stupidos. I lo...
What if someone holds a gun against your temple and force you to buy it?
