BlackBerry has launched BlackBerry 9720 smartphone with BB 7.1 OS. The company has released their new BB10 OS earlier. As the new phone will be using BB7.1, we can expect it to be a budget friendly smartphone from BB. But there are no official confirmation from the side of the company about the price tag of the smartphone.
The BB 9720 smartphone will be having a 2.8 inch display screen. It will have both touch screen and QWERTY key pad. The 9720 smartphone will be packing an 806 MHz Tavor MG1 processor. The device will be having 512 MB of RAM, 512 MB of internal storage memory and an expandable memory up to 32 GB using a microSD card. The phone will be having a 5 MP rear camera. But the device will not be packing a front camera.
The new 9720 has some peculiar features like the lock screen swipe, which will enable you to unlock the screen and to have access to the camera. There is also a dedicated BBM and a dedicated BBM button on the side of the smartphone. The BBM Voice of the new smartphone lets you chat over Wi-Fi for free.
The whole device is powered by a 1450 mAh battery. As per the claims of the company, the battery will give you a talk time of 7 hours and a standby time of 18 days. The BlackBerry 9720 smartphone will be coming in five different colour variations – Black, White, Purple, Blue and Pure Pink. According to official circles, the smartphone will be shipping to Asia, EMEA and Latin America in the coming weeks.
Carlo Chiarello, Executive Vice President for Products at BlackBerry, said, "The BlackBerry 9720 smartphone gives you all the essentials of the BlackBerry smartphone experience to support a communications centric lifestyle. It has the best keyboard and functionality for BBM, as well as an updated BlackBerry 7 OS that adds many enhancements. It's perfect for customers upgrading from a feature phone or entry-level Android or Windows Phone device, as well as existing BlackBerry smartphone customers, that want a richer experience and jump up in style and performance."
As BlackBerry is in a struggle stage right now, the device might not be getting a warm welcome from the market. And also, the older version of the OS might make it less desirable. Well, lets wait and see.
