For the loyal BlackBerry users out there it looks like the BlackBerry Q20,otherwise known as the BlackBerry Classic, will see a release scheduled for November.
John Chen, BlackBerry’s CEO, stated in an interview with USA Today last week that “There’s a new product called the BlackBerry Classic that’s coming out. It’s an updated and enhanced version of one of our most popular and successful products called the Bold. It will include a keyboard and a good touch-screen, very fast Internet, Web-browsing capability and multimedia capability. But also it will be very productive and very secure. So, all the familiar things that people love, with some new technology updated. That will come out in November along with the server that helps companies manage devices.”
This device was announced late February and the specs will feature BES 12, “a generous 3.5-inch touchscreen,” with a “large battery” and is “crafted from premium materials and designed for reliability and durability.” In addition, the “Classic” and iconic design of this BlackBerry will bring back the navigation keys (menu, back, send, end) and a trackpad.
