BlackBerry seems to be making a comeback as of late with the release of their Passport cellphone. Now, the company is set to return to its roots by releasing the BlackBerry Classic, a phone which shifts the focus of solely touchscreen hardware to concentrate on the basics: a physical keyboard with an immense battery life. The phone still retains touchscreen features but a bulk of navigation is to be undertaken by the trackpad. Some additional improvements include a lightning fast web browser, ability to download both BlackBerry and Android apps, and an overhauled operating system.
