AT&T launches BlackBerry Passport And Classic on Feb. 20

AT&T will offer the BlackBerry Passport And BlackBerry Classic starting on Feb. 20. These new BlackBerry phones have been announced at the CES 2015 beginning of the year.

In 1999 AT&T has been the first carrier to offer a BlackBerry device in the United States with the BlackBerry 950. The company is committed to BlackBerry despite its struggles to stay relevant. AT&T announced today that the new BlackBerry Passport and BlackBerry Classic will be available on Feb. 20. Both phones have been announced at the CES in early January. The first BlackBerry Passport phone with sharp edges was unveiled in September of 2014.

The AT&T exclusive BlackBerry Passport is available in the new design with rounded edges. The BlackBerry Passport has a 4.5-inch Full HD square touch screen and a touch-enabled QWERTY keyboard. Built on BlackBerry's secure BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.1 operating system, the BlackBerry Passport runs on AT&T's 4G LTE network.

The BlackBerry Passport will be available starting Feb. 20 for $0 down on an AT&T Next plan at $21.67 per month. You can also buy the BlackBerry Passport for $199.99 with a two-year agreement or at no annual commitment for $649.99.

"The BlackBerry Passport is ideal for the mobile professional who wants an innovative wireless device focused on security and productivity. Available first in the U.S. on the AT&T network, customers will benefit from the uniquely designed Passport's enhanced features, including a wider screen, 32GB of storage, and a 3450 mAh battery," says Jeff Bradley, SVP, Device Marketing and Developer Services, AT&T.

The BlackBerry Classic includes BlackBerry's QWERTY keyboard, trackpad and navigation keys. Although familiar in appearance, the BlackBerry Classic upgrades the BlackBerry Bold 9900 experience with a faster browser, longer battery life and more screen space. It also comes with the secure BlackBerry 10 OS 10.3.1 operating system.

You can purchase the BlackBerry Classic for $0 down on an AT&T Next plan at $14 per month. You can also buy the new BlackBerry Classic for $49.99 with a two-year agreement or at no annual commitment for $419.99.
