Our previews of the BlackBerry Classic have proven to be quite popular. We’ve shown you what celebrities and fans consider a classic, how navigating is fast and familiar, and some useful keyboard shortcuts to keep you productive. Today, I’ll be showing you a little bit about the browser, which, as you’ll find in the video below, is 3x faster than that of a BlackBerry Bold 9900. I’ll also briefly show you the huge app selection available via BlackBerry World and the Amazon Appstore.


As you can see the browser is fast and renders websites beautifully on the BlackBerry Classic. The reality is that this video doesn’t even begin to touch on all the fantastic elements of this industry leading browser.

What this means for you is a full featured mobile web experiences with pages that render fast and beautifully.

Unlimited Tabs & Reader Mode

If you’re like me you click on many links, but don’t always have the chance to read them in real-time. This is where I appreciated the ability to have unlimited tabs open within the BlackBerry Classic browser. I can have a number of tabs available to me, ready to access at my convenience – without worrying about them disappearing if I need to open a fresh one.

And when you’re catching up on those articles, Reader Mode condenses the information into a simple easy-to-read view. Content takes a front seat, making it more digestible.

3X Faster than BlackBerry Bold 9900

The BlackBerry Classic offers a truly modern smartphone experience with that familiar BlackBerry feel. There are countless situations where one might need to browse the web quickly, like book an Uber car, read the paper or check the score of the game  – the BlackBerry Classic enables you to do so with speed. This keeps you productive, not waiting.

The BlackBerry Classic is available for pre-order. You can get involved in the upcoming launch by being a part of the BlackBerry Classic Mosaic as well. Let us know what you are looking forward to most on BlackBerry Classic in the comments below.
