BlackBerry Q20 Classic: BB goes back to QWERTY roots

Apart from the Z3, BlackBerry also introduced its latest smartphone that goes back to its roots. The BlackBerry Q20, or “Classic” as they like to call it, comes with everything a BB handset is known for: a physical keyboard, a trackpad, and the menu and back buttons. It also sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen, similar to the iPhone 4.

The announcement comes at the heels of BlackBerry’s attempts to reverse its years-long decline, as the company also shifts its focus towards business costumers and pushing its software and service on phones made by its competitors.

The BlackBerry Q20, which is also a product of collaboration with Foxconn, may be a good way to get BB’s loyal consumers excited, but as far as reaching out to new costumers, it remains to be seen.

The latest BlackBerry smartphone will be available “in the second half of 2014.” Pricing details remain a mystery.
