The world’s leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic designers around the world, the Chicago Athenaeum: Music of Architecture and Design along with the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies recently has awarded the BlackBerry Z30 the Good Design award this year.

In October, the jury met in New York and Los Angeles and selected over 700 product designs and graphics from over 36 nations worthy of the GOOD DESIGN™ Award for their Design Excellence—including the BlackBerry Z30.

It came to me as no suprise as I still consider Z30 is one of the best BlackBerry even smartphones out there. With the just right size..a good battery and sexy design…Z30 is still a good choice for those who wants to have a good BlackBerry experience (ofcourse BlackBerry Passport a much better choice)

Who remember Brick Breaker? It’s was my first game I ever play on phone (not so smart phone back then.. 😛 ).  Brick Breaker then came pre-loaded on BlackBerry smartphones for years was a favorite at that time.

For those who are eagerly waiting for BlackBerry Classic launch on December 17th in New York, Frankfurt and Singapore here another tease from our friend at N4BB.. a render image of white (and black) BlackBerry Classic!.

However, there is no confirmation yet from BlackBerry whether they plans to release the white version. But, since all BlackBerry 10 devices have a white version (including BlackBerry Passport) it safe to assume that there will be a white BlackBerry Classic.
