New Delhi: Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry Ltd has launched the BlackBerry 9720. The price of the phone has not been made official.
The new phone will take a reverse mode as far as its operating system is concerned. Instead of the latest BlackBerry 10 platform, the new phone will run OS 7.1 version.
The phone, to be available in five different colours, features a full physical QWERTY keyboard. The 2.8-inch touchscreen device packs a 806MHz Tavor MG1 processor. It has an internal storage of 512MB of RAM, expandable 32 GB using microSD card. There is no front facing camera in the phone, however, with a 5-megapixel rear camera you can get a 4X digital zoom.
