Blackberry has long been a company which caters to a different kind of user - which means it has retained elements like a physical QWERTY keyboard in some models long after they disappeared from the world of smartphones. And they've taken another unusual step by releasing a variant of their Classic handset without any camera.
In our media-obsessed world, where hardly a meal passes without something being uploaded to Instagram, it seems incredible to ship a handset from a major company without any kind of camera but Blackberry has a history of appealing to specific audiences, often with more of a business focus than other brands. So the Blackberry Classic No Camera is designed to appeal to users who work in an environment where cameras are discouraged or even illegal.
The appeal may be niche but its a great way to corner that market, alongside the advanced security features which come with every Blackberry device. And the specs otherwise are perfectly acceptable - a 3.5 inch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard with a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor and 2 gigs of RAM. It has a the latest BB OS update and support for 4G and NFC and the sleek, utilitarian look the company has become known for.
