The BlackBerry Classic is the third physical keyboard BlackBerry 10 device. Announced at MWC 2014, the BlackBerry Classic brings back the classic trackpad and function keys that we haven't yet seen on BlackBerry 10 devices. It joins the Q5 and Q10 in the QWERTY line of BlackBerry 10 devices. The BlackBerry Classic is set to launch on December 17th 2014 at events held in New York, Frankfurt and Singapore.
