The Classic is believed to be the successor to the Blackberry Bold 9900 and it features the classic and iconic QWERTY mobile keyboard and trackpad every corporate user loves, along with a slew of other features we’ve seen before during the pre-order sale. It will run on its native Blackberry 10.3 OS, and can support installation of Android apps via the Amazon AppStore.
