More Performance in a Familiar Package

Get the performance driven results of BlackBerry® 10, with the classic navigation keys and physical keyboard you know and love.

40 Keys to Success

It takes more than fast thumbs and a stone cold focus to stay on top of your inbox and the day’s priorities. You need navigation keys that do more than ‘go home’, and a physical keyboard that has no rival. Navigate with confidence using the optical track pad, menu and back keys, or answer, start and end phone calls with the dedicated phone keys.

It’s about having a real, proper, don’t-mess-with-me keyboard. It’s great, like really great

— Dieter Bohn, The Verge

Built for Ultimate Reliability and Durability
