And it is that in recent times the only ones with this format have been three BlackBerry, the Classic, the Passport, and finally the first smartphone of the Canadian brand with Android as an operating system, the Priv.
And now that BlackBerry has put an end to the production of the Classic and the other two models are also taking a hit little notable and could run the same fate, perhaps time to ask ourselves if the physical keyboard in the Smartphone era has come to an end. And the answer seems Yes, because it seems that no other manufacturer will take the baton to BlackBerry.
