    Is the date on the boxes of all the BlackBerry devices the actual build date? Or is it just the date of when the device was boxed, when really it could have been just sitting around for months already?
    What exactly is the date on the boxes?-img_20160226_200614.jpg

    Was this device made on the 14th of November 2015? Or was it made months ago and that was when it was boxed?

    Boxing date. In this case, yes, 14 November 2015.

    What's the OS version listed on the box?

    Well, definitely not the original manufacture date, then.

    I'm guessing the Classic manufacture period was a couple months in and around December 2014.

    Manufacture date can also be a bit vague. Especially since some manufacturers produce semi-finished goods that are fully functional but then do the final finishing and assembly upon order. Again, this depends from industry to industry. For example, a manufacturer of a refrigerator may stock fully functional refrigerators with primer but no final color yet. Bulbs inside the refrigerator may also not yet be installed. When an order for 500 Blue and 500 white comes in, they will do the painting, finishing, decals, add the bulb, double check the coolant, put manuals, box it then ship it.

    But the actual semi-finished goods was already manufactured at an earlier date. I don't know the actual operations needed to make a phone but definitely the phone was made earlier. But it isn't finished yet. Maybe batteries are not yet installed. During boxing, they load final OS, place batteries, manuals, box it.

    We won't actually know as manufacturing from industry to industry is different and it also depends on the components that may need to be placed last or finishing (color) that may change.
