July 5 (Reuters) - BlackBerry Ltd said it would stop making its BlackBerry Classic smartphone, 18 months after launching it in an effort to entice users who prefer physical, rather than touch, keyboards.

The company also said on Tuesday that it was on track to deliver an updated version of the BlackBerry 10 operating system next month. ( (Reporting by Arathy S Nair in Bengaluru; Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
