John Chen: BlackBerry Classic is for you

BlackBerry Classic

The recently-released BlackBerry Passport is just one of the new things that's coming to BlackBerry fans — there's the BlackBerry Classic coming as well, bringing the, well, classic BlackBerry trackpad and control buttons to the modern BlackBerry 10.3 OS. The Classic is expected by the end of the year, but in the meantime, BlackBerry CEO John Chen is engaging in some rallying of the troops. He wants you to remind you of what BlackBerry's about, and that the Classic is a distillation of the BlackBerry spirit and ethos.

If you're a Verizon customer who has been on the hunt for a BlackBerry Z30, you might have noticed the device disappeared from the carriers website for pretty much three months.

BlackBerry CEO: 'BlackBerry as a technology company will survive and do well'

BlackBerry CEO John Chen wants to make that clear. It's a message he has been delivering across several outlets as of late, be it LinkedIn Op-Eds, while he's speaking at Technology Forums in Hong Kong or heading up earnings calls and while there's still some naysayers out there, the message is starting to stick for many. The conversations have changed from can John Chen save the patient to people wanting to know how he's actually doing it, because even though there's still lots of work left to do, the work he's done so far has returned some very positive results.

T-Mobile BlackBerry Q10

While the spat earlier this year between BlackBerry CEO, John Chen and T-Mobile CEO, John Legere, made for some tabloid-like headlines and deals for consumers on both sides in the short-term, since then it has ultimately left a lot of corporate customers in a lurch. With BlackBerry and T-Mobile US putting an end to their licensing agreement, companies that want to remain on T-Mobile and still use BlackBerry no longer have a direct pipe to new T-Mobile compatible BlackBerry phones.

T-Mobile BlackBerry Q10's for $250USD!

This issue has been brought to my attention more than a few times now since the break-up occurred, and more recently a solution has presented itself for T-Mobile corporate customers, with a BIG VOLUME of T-Mobile compatible BlackBerry Q10's being secured and available for purchase. For $250, unlocked, companies and individuals can pick up T-Mobile BlackBerry Q10's via Cellify. To be clear, these are Q10s with T-Mobile radio bands - just buying unlocked Q10s online does not necessarily mean you're getting the model that works with T-Mobile USA (the SQN-100-5 model). We vetted the deal to make sure everything is on the up and up in terms of how the inventory was obtained, etc. and everything checks out there.
