With Australia now taken care of, it was onto the next region for the BlackBerry Classic and this time it has now been officially announced for the Philippines although you'll still have to wait a few days before you can purchase one. Teaming up with MemoXpress, BlackBerry has now announced the BlackBerry Classic will go on sale in the Philippines starting February 5th, 2015 with a suggested retail price of PHP 20,990.
BlackBerry Classic delivers the unique combination of our BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard, physical buttons and a trackpad to aid navigation and control – all powered by the updated BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.1. The resulting user experience will make BlackBerry Classic a go-to productivity tool for customers here in the Philippines," said Cameron Vernest, Managing Director for the Philippines and Singapore at BlackBerry. "BlackBerry Classic is a secure device that feels familiar in their hands, with the added performance and agility they need to be competitive in today's busy world.
Customers looking to place an order for a BlackBerry Classic of their very own will be able to do so directly through the MemoXpress website. As it stands, it doesn't look as though pre-orders have been set up so you'll just have to wait for MemoXpress to update the site accordingly. That said, if they start taking pre-orders between now and Feb. 5th, we'll let you know. Need more info on the Classic? Check out full review right here.
