Hands-on with the blue BlackBerry Classic

The BlackBerry Classic has been available in Canada since December, initially available in rather plain black and, in April, white variants.

The company promised blue and bronze models for later in 2015, but until now we’ve only seen one of the two made available.


The Cobalt Blue Classic is interesting. The colour shimmers and changes depending on the light source, and it’s unlike anything I’ve seen (the phone design aside, of course). It’s not to everyone’s tastes, but in my brief time with the phone learned to love its changeable nature.


At its core, though, is still the same BlackBerry Classic, fantastic hardware keyboard and questionably useful tool belt. At the moment, the blue variant is on sale for $449 CAD at ShopBlackBerry.
