BlackBerry Classic and Passport heading to AT&T
The BlackBerry Passport released in September with the BlackBerry Classic arriving in December, and many fans of BlackBerry devices have been pleased to see these two smartphones hit the shelves. There’s good news today if you’ve been hoping that they would be offered by AT&T, as the BlackBerry Classic and Passport are both heading to the giant US carrier.
AT&T already said back in September that it would be selling the Passport although it has still failed to materialize on the carrier. However, AT&T has now announced it again, and it will have a slightly different look. The international Passport had square corners but the design for the AT&T variant gives it rounded corners. An exact availability date on AT&T has still not been given, but there’s a nice bonus as far as pricing is concerned.
The carrier previously said that the BlackBerry Passport price from them would be $249 on a two-year contract, but now a lower price of $199.99 on contract has been given. Alternatively it will also be offered on various Next installment plans. The price of the phone contract-free is $649.99.
More details on availability will be given in the next few weeks, and that’s the same story for the BlackBerry Classic (pictured here) on AT&T, with the carrier merely saying it’s coming in “the near future.” Pricing is available though and the AT&T Classic will cost you $49.99 on the usual two-year contract or $419.99 sans contract, with Next plans also available.
Are you pleased to hear that AT&T will soon be offering the BlackBerry Classic and Passport phones? Which of these are you most likely to purchase?
