BlackBerry has decided to end manufacturing of their BlackBerry Classic smartphone, meaning once the existing stock sells out you won’t be able to purchase brand new one anymore. This does not mean BlackBerry Classic won’t be receiving BlackBerry 10 OS updates, it will surely get BlackBerry OS 10.3.3 release next month, with a second update coming next year as well.
From BlackBerry’s announcement:
To keep innovating and advancing our portfolio, we are updating our smartphone lineup with state of the art devices. As part of this, and after many successful years in the market, we will no longer manufacture BlackBerry Classic. For many years, Classic (and its BBOS predecessors) has been in our portfolio. It has been an incredible workhorse device for customers, exceeding all expectations. But, the Classic has long surpassed the average lifespan for a smartphone in today’s market. We are ready for this change so we can give our customers something better – entrenched in our legacy in security and pedigree in making the most productive smartphones.
