BlackBerry Classic preorders now live

The BlackBerry Classic, complete with the familiar button belt and trackpad, is available right now for pre-order from ShopBlackBerry for $449. It's worth noting that you won't be able to use this one on Sprint, Verizon, or U.S. Cellular. The launch event proper is December 17, so that should give you an idea of a shipping timeframe.

If you need a refresher, the BlackBerry Classic is the considerably more buttoned-down counterpart to the Passport. No official specs have been released just yet, even with the preorder now live. Anyone interested can get preordering the BlackBerry Classic right here. Who's in?
