NEWS: Blackberry releases ‘no nonsense’ smartphone

Blackberry has released a ‘no nonsense’ smartphone in a bid to win back business customers.

The Blackberry Classic's QWERTY keyboard aims to meet the ‘needs of productive people who appreciate speed and accuracy’.

This new device offers faster browsing, more than double the screen space and 50 per cent more battery life than the company’s previous devices.

John Chen, executive chairman and CEO at Blackberry, explained: “We listened closely to our customers’ feedback to ensure we are delivering the technologies to power them through their day – and that feedback led directly to the development of Blackberry Classic.

“Blackberry Classic is the powerful communications tool that many BlackBerry Bold and Curve users have been waiting for. It’s the secure device that feels familiar in their hands, with the added performance and agility they need to be competitive in today’s busy world.”
