The New BlackBerry Classic Review

I was surprised when hubby handed me a white BlackBerry Z10 early 2014. Prior to that, I had a BB9220 which I got as a loyalty reward from telecom. What I like most of the BB9220 is the BlackBerry Hub. I can easily access important notifications and conversations, read mails, check out twits and many more. How about the BB Passport? I am also impressed with the new BlackBerry Passport. It looks stylish and modern.

A couple of weeks ago, RIM launch the BlackBerry Classic which offers customers the power and performance of BlackBerry 10, with the DNA and familiarity of the ‘classic’ keypad experience. The new BB Classic will be much appreciated by old-school QWERTY users.

BlackBerry Classic Software and Features:

BlackBerry® is known for its Keyboard & Trackpad. It also offers shortcut keys, holding "A" brings you to address book.

BlackBerry® Browser 10 web browser is amazingly fast and astoundingly beautiful.

Screen & Battery: 3.5-inch touch screen display, 294 dpi HD resolution and Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 for greater durability.

Premium Components. It's made of stainless steel frame boarders, durable materials mixed with top-of-the-line technology. This includes a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of device storage (expandable by up to 128GB via SD), and a 2MP front- and 8MP rear-facing camera with enhanced optics and upgraded imaging sensors.

BlackBerry® 10 OS 10.3.1 – The BlackBerry Classic comes preloaded with the BlackBerry 10.3.1 operating system, offering a fresh look that incorporates updated icons and an instant action bar so that each user’s most commonly accessed functions are in the center of their screen. With this new operating system, users gain access to powerful features, including:
BB Classic Front camera

BlackBerry® Blend brings messaging and content that is on your BlackBerry smartphone to your computer and tablet. Get instant message notifications, read and respond to your work and personal email, BBM™ and text messages, and access your documents, calendar, contacts and media in real time on whatever device you are on, powered by your BlackBerry.

BlackBerry® Assistant is like your personal assistant. It works like SIRI. It can be used with voice and text commands to help users manage work and personal email, contacts, calendar and other native BlackBerry 10 applications. If you type, it responds silently, if you speak, it speaks back and if you activate over Bluetooth, it speaks back with additional context because it assumes you might not have access to the screen.

  • BlackBerry World showcases essential productivity apps for business professionals looking to drive efficient communications and collaboration.
  • Amazon Appstore – Preloaded on BlackBerry Classic, users can access popular Android apps and games through the Amazon Appstore including Candy Crush Saga, Pinterest, Kindle for Android and Cut the Rope 2. Users can also scan Android apps for malware and privacy issues prior to installation using BlackBerry Guardian.
  • BlackBerry® Hub – The one place to manage all your conversations: email, texts, BBM, phone calls, social media and more. You can even glance at what’s next in your calendar. It’s always available with a single swipe to help you stay organized, in control and on top of all your conversations.

To sum it up, BlackBerry Classic is three times faster browser. 60 percent more screen space, 50 percent longer battery life and greater variety of applications through BlackBerry World and the Amazon Appstore. BlackBerry also partners with MemoXpress in the Philippines. The first device launched in partnership with MemoXpress will be BlackBerry Classic with suggested retail price of Php20,990.
