BlackBerry Q5

The start of the BlackBerry Live 2013 annual conference, BlackBerry announces the BlackBerry Q5 – a QWERTY device for emerging markets. The BlackBerry Q5 is a low-end BlackBerry device with a 3.1″ touchscreen and one of BlackBerry’s classic physical QWERTY keyboards, which they are so proud of and a re-engineered keyboard that runs the BlackBerry 10 operating system.

The screen has an unusual resolution of 720 x 720px – the same as on the Q10, but this time it’s an LCD unit. Inside the BlackBerry Q5 there’s a dual-core 1.2Ghz CPU and 8 gigs worth of storage. There’s a microSD slot to expand that, but the battery is not removable.

The new 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.
