BB Announces The BlackBerry Q5 For Emerging Markets

By 01:06 Fri, 16 Jul 2021 Comments

The start of the BlackBerry Live 2013 annual conference today in Orlando, USA, saw the announcement of the BlackBerry Q5 - a QWERTY device for emerging markets.

The Blackberry Q5 revolves around a 3.1-inch touchclassy screen and one of BlackBerry's classic physical QWERTY keyboards, which they are so proud of. The classy screen has an unusual resolution of 720 x 720px - the same as on the Q10, but this time it's an Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) unit. Inside the BlackBerry Q5 there's a dual-core 1.2Ghz Central Processing Units (CPU) and 8 gigs worth of storage. There's a microSD slot to expand that, but the battery is not removable.

The recent BlackBerry Q5 will be available in selected markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia (including the Asia Pacific region), and Latin America, with availability beginning in July. The smartphone will be offered in black, white, red and pink.

Another announcement that came from the today's keynote is that the BlackBerry 10.1 update is now ready to seed to the BlackBerry Z10 (later this month in the US). Not only that, but starting today, Skype will be available to all users who update their Z10s to v10.1.
