Ideal for users who prefer the tactile experience of a QWERTY keypad, the unlocked, black BlackBerry Classic SQC100-4 16GB Smartphone features 35 backlit physical keys plus an optical trackpad. And for those times when touch interactivity is preferred, the Classic has you covered as well - featuring a 3.5" 720 x 720 capacitive touch screen with 24-bit True Color support.

Designed for business and pleasure alike, the Classic includes the BlackBerry 10 mobile OS, which includes a collection of productivity-focused apps. In addition, social media apps, games, additional productivity software, and more can be installed either from BlackBerry World or the Amazon Apps Store. The phone's software is backed up by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm CPU along with 2GB of RAM. For apps, data, and general storage, it features 16GB of internal flash memory. This can be supplemented with microSDHC/SDXC cards up to 128GB in capacity (available separately).

The Classic features 4G LTE connectivity (see specs for supported bands), and is 3G and 2G backward compatible - a separately available nano SIM card is required to start using the phone. In addition to mobile networks, the phone can connect to the Internet and other devices via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. To simplify connection, it supports NFC enabling you to tap the phone to another NFC-enabled device in order to pair the two together with Wi-Fi.

BlackBerry 10 OS
BlackBerry 10 OS is a phone operating system designed for multi-taskers on the go. Active Frames display summary information from compatible apps, such as new messages from the Messenger app, or available file space in the Manager app, in customizable frames residing on your homepage, keeping what's most important consolidated in one place. BlackBerry Hub allows you to peek into conversations or check messages from within in any app helping you stay productive without constant app switching. And if the built-in apps aren't enough, the BlackBerry World Store is more than just an app store, you can download games, music, videos, and more. It even also pays attention to previous downloads and makes automatic recommendations for you

The OS features a virtual keyboard which can be used even on phone models that also feature a QWERTY hardware keyboard; in addition, Voice Control allows hands-free users to dictate a document, compose an email, or search for a file or contract, among other things using voice-recognition alone. Finally, BlackBerry Browser notably offers a Reader Model that cuts out the extraneous noise letting, you focus strictly on the main text of the document. To help back up files, as well as migrate them to a new BlackBerry OS device, BlackBerry Link allows you to synchronize your phone with a computer
