Blackberry Classic is the best alternative for Bold & Curve

In the age of Full Touchscreen smartphones, Blackberry has launched Blackberry Classic, a smartphone that comes with classical Physical keyboard which used to be the most loved feature of Blackberry devices. Since the arrival of CEO John Chen, Blackberry focuses on leveraging their strengths like Security with which Blackberry partnered up with Samsung to provide end-to-end Android security, Physical Keyboards that resulted in the much-hyped launch of Squarish Blackberry Passport and now Blackberry Classic. Unlike Passport, Classic isn’t so expensive thus targeting the mid-range smartphone users more specifically the Blackberry fans who still has a bit of taste left for Physical Keyboard devices.

Blackberry Classic features a square Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected 3.5-inch touchscreen with 720 x 720 pixels resolution powered by a dual-core Qualcomm processor with 2 GB RAM & 16 GB Internal Storage. With 8 MP Rear Camera and 2 MP front shooter, Classic tries to stay in alive in this camera-obsessed smartphone age. Riding on the power of Blackberry 10 OS, Classic comes with a dedicated button for Blackberry Assistant, a Siri-like thing that can do a handful set of tasks when asked for. Blackberry Classic also comes with pre-installed Amazon Appstore that brings Android apps to the blackberry device. Though there would be problems with Aspect ratio while running the apps, Classic allows you to select the best aspect ration in which app can be run, hence a nice addition for app-craving individuals. Nevertheless, Blackberry Classic isn’t for such nerdy youths or gamers, it’s for business persons who just scroll through their emails all the day and want a highly secure yet powerful smartphone. Along with the above offerings, Blackberry Classic also promises a faster browser and more battery standby up to 22 hrs with 2515 mAh battery.

Verdict: Blackberry Classic isn’t going to conquer the busy smartphone space that’s ruled by Apple & Samsung (Okay! Xiaomi, Lenovo, Huawei are also there), yet it’s the best alternative available for Blackberry Bold & Curve users.

After rigorous Advertisements, Flipkart finally opened its #BigBillionDay sale this morning at 8:00am IST and the game of “Out of Stock” begun. Much like India’s Rail Ticket booking service, IRCTC that opens tatkal ticketing in the morning which is a nightmare even for Internet nerds, Flipkart started the #BigBillionDay sale with Out of Stock that with no doubt proved that this day is not just a bad day for Flipkart but a great day for its direct competitors – Snapdeal and Amazon India. And as usual the angry Indians are sharing their sense of humanger (humor+anger) in Twitter and those are hilarious.
