When BlackBerry first introduced the Classic two months ago, we knew that the smartphone would be finding a home in the US on AT&T. Shortly thereafter, we saw Verizon getting ready to welcome the handset to its own network, as well. US Mobile may have gotten a head start on both of them with its early January start to sales, but AT&T finally began selling the BlackBerry Classic for itself earlier this week (along with the Passport). That leaves Verizon; when could its users hope to get their hands on the Classic? Today the network makes its plans official, with BlackBerry Classic sales slated to begin this Thursday, February 26.

At least, that’s when online sales will begin, and it will take Verizon until March 5 to get the Classic into its brick-and-mortar stores. The smartphone will sell on-contract for the relatively low price of just about $100 (after rebate), though that can’t beat the $50 AT&T is asking.

Verizon hasn’t yet shared a full, unsubsidized sticker price, but we’d imagine it falls somewhere between AT&T’s $420 and BlackBerry’s own $450. Of course, you can’t (at least, not yet) buy the CDMA-compatible Classic directly from BlackBerry, so Verizon may enjoy the luxury of being able to price its handset a little higher.
