To coincide with the launch of the BlackBerry Classic, hopefully you saw the poll we ran last week where we asked you which BlackBerry 10 device would be your next? With BlackBerry listening to what customers want and bringing back the function keys and optical trackpad on the Classic I was intrigued to see how many of you were planning to make the Classic your next smartphone.

TELUS sales of the BlackBerry Classic go live!

If TELUS is your preferred carrier and you want to get your hands on the brand new BlackBerry Classic, you can now place your orders. Sales of the new QWERTY smartphone with the traditional navigation keys and trackpad have gone live with two-year contract pricing set at only $50.

If you want to avoid the whole contract thing, you'll be looking at a $550 dip from you bank account to call the Classic yours, though that would be a bit silly considering ShopBlackBerry sells it for $500. Want to know more about the Classic? Check our full review here or hit the TELUS website to place your order as the device is not yet available in store.

BlackBerry Classic

15 Comments

Finally! My wife wanted to switch to BB10 but didn't want to give up her trackpad and BB button, so she has stuck with her BB9900. Now she will be able to join the BB10 experience! Can't wait for this phone to be released.

does anyone know for certain if Verizon will carry the Classic, if so when will they make it available to the public?

Does anyone think blackberry should re-ignite the torch series? Give it sharper screen and some half decent internal specs.

I am a Blackberry user for almost over 5 years and this is due to my business related compulsion during travelling. I really fail to understand why BB has not come with dual SIM option so far ? Is Mr. John Chan is not able to see where he is loosing ? Really surprising.

I have a question for anyone who knows for certain. Does BB make a (current) phone that allows you to enter specific phone numbers that you want to block? After having owned a Z10 for a short period and being harassed by telemarketing calls, I was disappointed to learn that the provider, nor the phone itself had provision to enter specific numbers to block. Instead I was directed to their website and told to create some sort of blacklist which was basically useless. Apparently you enter the numbers which you want to allow.
I'd be especially interested if either the Passport or the new Classic could do this.

When is Verizon going to be offering the Blackberry Classic? I just bought a new Iphone ( was forced) and I don't like it. Wish I still have my Bold. If Verizon isnt going to offer it - what options do Blackberry addicts have?

Well I have had my new BB Classic for one week now. It is an amazing phone. How Amazing?, My 15-year old son asked to use it for one evening, after which he asked if it is to late to switch from his new Nexus to a BB Classic or Z30. He is serious!

If you like mom, apple pie, and fresh bread, then you will love this phone.
