AT&T to carry BlackBerry Classic, exclusive BlackBerry Passport design

BlackBerry Passport (AT&T)

BlackBerry and AT&T announced today that the carrier will be offering the BlackBerry Classic, and an exclusive design of the Passport.

The AT&T-exclusive Passport features rounded edges, as opposed to the squared-off shape of the original phone, and an AT&T logo at the rear. Not much else appears to have changed otherwise, with the same 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, 13MP camera, and 32GB internal storage in-tow. A BlackBerry press release suggests it will come preloaded with OS 10.3.1, but prior Passports will receive this update anyhow.

Anyone looking to purchase the phone will be able to do so for $0 down on an AT&T Next plan, $199.99 on a two-year contract, and for $649.99 off-contract.

The BlackBerry Classic was confirmed for AT&T today as well. It will also be available for $0 down with an AT&T Next plan, as well as $49.99 on a two-year term and $419.99 with no contract.

Additional availability details will be announced in the coming weeks. AT&T customers can sign up to receive more information here:
