BlackBerry Classic (SIM Free)
The BlackBerry Classic is, as the name suggests, a modern version of the ’Classic’ BlackBerry.
An iconic form factor, the 4 row QWERTY keypad, optical trackpad, function buttons and large touchscreen display, along with a powerful battery, make this a workhorse for the mobile professional, a hub for connectivity for the socially connected, or a reliable tool for the busy family member.
SIM Free/Unlocked Stock
Clove Technology provides SIM Free, factory unlocked stock of the BlackBerry Classic. Please note this is originally EU grade stock, that has been converted for sale in the UK (now provided with a UK mains charger).
Reasons to Buy BlackBerry Classic
- Traditional BlackBerry design
- 4 row backlit QWERTY keyboard
- 3.46" touchscreen display
- Stereo speakers
- 8-megapixel camera
- 16GB internal storage
- MicroSD memory card slot
- Excellent battery life
High-end specifications in the form of quad-core processing power, 2GB of RAM accompany, and the 3.46” touchscreen display, ensure that, whatever you need doing, the Classic completes the task quickly and effectively.
BlackBerry 10.3 has been updated with more functionality than before. A combined inbox makes light work of emails and social network updates whilst the improved app store and, now pre-loaded Amazon app store, gives access to thousands of applications.
A rear-facing 8-megapixel camera captures images and video and the vast array of connectivity options means it is possible to share this and more easily, right from your palm.
Use WiFi or 4G data connections to share content with social networks and to email to friends or colleagues.
SlimPort connectivity enables you to share with a larger display (adapter required). This is particularly useful if you give presentations and want to ditch the laptop and projector, or you just want to show off your recent holiday snaps to friends.
Focused on quality the Classic feels solid in the hand. Weighing in at 178g it is not particularly light or thin at 10.2 mm, but it is built to last.
Stereo speakers pack a punch when it comes to playing back your favourite music or films, and call quality and audio recording is superb too, thanks to an array of built-in microphones.
The QWERTY keyboard is backlit and has shortcuts for popular functions such as locking the display or silencing the device. Enter text quickly, and simply, with more accuracy than the current crop of touchscreens thanks to the tactile feedback.
All of your content, be it work or personal, can be stored on the internal 16GB of memory, but if you need more make full use of the microSD memory card slot that supports, up to, 128GB cards.
The Classic reminds us what makes BlackBerrys so great and if you need a reliable mobile device, with a specification and capability to last, the Classic is a perfect solution.
