BlackBerry Is Getting Back To Their Roots With Their New Phone, But They Add The Android App Store

BlackBerry has decided that after almost going out of business and being the underdog for years, they are going to get back in touch with their roots. There are putting out a brand new phone that is inspired by their classic design, except this time they are going to have an Android app store.

The phone is called the BlackBerry Classic. It is going to be shipping out to retailers some time in the middle of December, and there is going to be an official launch event on December 17th.

The Classic is bringing back what originally made BlackBerry what it is. It is going to have a physical QWERTY keyboard underneath it's screen, which is going to be 3.46 inches. It will also have a small trackpad just like the good old days, along with home, back, and menu buttons.

The keyboard isn't the only option to use though. The screen will actually be a touchscreen with 720p high definition with a pixel density of 291 pixels per inch. It also has a dual core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. Other features include an 8 megapixel camera in the back and a 2 megapixel camera in the front which is perfect for video calling.

The operating system is BlackBerry 10.3.1, and you can still download all of the BlackBerry apps from their own app store. On top of that, you will be able to get Android apps as well. This was one of the biggest things that made people hate BlackBerry. Their app store sucked and offered almost nothing, and Android was killing it with seemingly millions of super useful and fun apps. Now you get to have that with your BlackBerry.

This is going to be a 4G LTE phone, but it won't work with Verizon, Spring, or US Cellular. If you have anything else and you are interested in giving this phone a shot, you should be able to do so.
