BlackBerry Q5 announced; to aim for budget buyers


Zee Media Bureau

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins in his keynote unveiled the new BlackBerry Q5 at the BlackBerry Live 2013 event held at Orlando.

The new smartphone was quite rumoured in the build up to the event though most doubted that the company would actually announce it as the BlackBerry Live is focused more on developers, IT managers and so on.

Though Heins said nothing about the pricing but mentioned that the device will target “emerging markets,” hinting that it will be a low-cost phone which will be stripped off high-end features like NFC.

The company stated in their blog that the Q5 would launch as early as July in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The Q5 range will be offered in multiple colours like black, white, red, and pink.

In comparison, the Q5 retains much of the physical features of the Q10 with a full physical keyboard and 3.1-inch touchscreen display.

The phone will run on BlackBerry 10.1 and will have many features that complemented the Q10.
