BlackBerry Classic Unboxing

BlackBerry Classic_fonearena-2

BlackBerry launched the BlackBerry Classic smartphone in the US at an event couple of weeks back. We ordered one from the US for $449 when it went on pre-order last month. The BlackBerry Classic was originally introduced as BlackBerry Q20 at the MWC 2014 earlier this year. As a successor of the Q10, the Classic has a slightly larger 3.5-inch display, which is currently the largest display on a QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone. Check out the unboxing.
