UK shoppers can now get their hands on the BlackBerry Classic white edition after the smartphone maker announced tie-ups with selected online retailers.
First unveiled last year, the Classic is based on the BlackBerry Bold range of handsets and retains the physical keyboard & trackpad still loved by many BlackBerry fans.
BlackBerry claims those upgrading from the Bold 9900 will enjoy 50 percent longer battery life and browser speeds which are three times faster than the earlier model.
Ron Louks, President, Devices and Emerging Solutions at BlackBerry, said: “The introduction of the BlackBerry Classic in white offers yet another colour choice to users who desire a stylish smartphone, yet understand the need for a mobile business tool that keeps them productive and securely manages their information.”
The BlackBerry Classic White is available today at ShopBlackBerry.com, Mobile Phones Direct and Clover Technology and will be available from Amazon.co.uk in the next few days.
