The BlackBerry Classic was launched in 2014 and it essentially represented a handset that reminded us of the good old days of BlackBerry back when they used to be king. However fast forward to today, BlackBerry has decided that the Classic will be no more and according to a post on its blog, they have announced that the handset will be discontinued.
Now if you’re a bit confused, we understand. Previously BlackBerry had issued a statement saying that the BlackBerry Classic’s manufacturing cycle had been “stopped”, but if anything this recent blog post pretty much confirms that it is the end of the line for the handset, so at the end of the day this is pretty much it for the phone.
According to BlackBerry, “To keep innovating and advancing our portfolio, we are updating our smartphone lineup with state of the art devices. As part of this, and after many successful years in the market, we will no longer manufacture BlackBerry Classic.” They also add that units will continue to be available while stocks last, so for those who want to get the phone, this is pretty much your last chance to do so.
That being said, this isn’t the end of the line for BlackBerry OS 10. The company reminded users that 10.3.3 will be coming out next month and another update will follow later this year. In the meantime for those looking forward to BlackBerry’s Android phones, last we checked there were at least 3 more in the pipeline.
