When you have an Android tablet at home, and at work you need to respond to 200 ASAP emails a day from wherever you are, Blackberry is the NUMBER ONE! The 9220 was released in Aug 2012 and is almost dirt cheap. The 9320 is the same, slightly costlier with 3G but no touch screen. Once you master the infra-red trackball, using the touchscreen will seem tedious, inaccurate and thumb hurting. I'm glad that the 9720 has touchscreen+trackball+3G+the lightweight 7.1 OS that does its business very well. For Blackberry's sake, I only hope the 9720 comes without compulsory BIS internet plans and is not as expensive as the Q5. This phone could really be one of those best sellers, all the best to Blackberry. For everything else, go buy a Gaming Spec Android tablet.
fresh...henry, 14 Aug 2013so this is basically a 9320 with a 5mp cam...seriously bb...u suck!!!I agree, just went to 5MP
[deleted post]But Still they're Losing and this won't make much money if it did at all
I used Blackberry phone before. I can say it is good but nowaday many people go for a mobile phone with affordable price and has some important apps like : Line, Whatsapp or Viber. It will be better if the mobile phone can use two sim cards (for asian market) and has good battery back up.
this is like updated version from previous 8520,or 9300..its like samsung and nokia phones, they have launch a lot of great phones (touchscreens)however they also released some call and text type of phone, like nokia 101,if people sees this a negativity that bb will be fadding? not really the launch of q5 and q10 was amazing...we have to understand that bam is wright apps starts here and coppied by apps that was originaly taken from the idea of bbm. this is a awareness i believe,that we should watch oout the next few phones they are going to launch.
Roppa, 14 Aug 2013Blackberry needs to dig a big deep hole to bury itself in, and all of there phones should be p... morein the musseum? lol! i dont think so.
blackberry will ALWAYS be BLACKBERRY were let me see, apps starts and coppied the way BBM flows (WeChat, WhatsApp, etc) even copy the way BBM BARCODES and PINs look like haha
if blackberry will be in musseum thats better than seeing a branded phone in the sidewalk haha
so this is basically a 9320 with a 5mp cam...seriously bb...u suck!!!
is it suport adobe flash player with no java suport... please give 9720 with flash player
Blackberry needs to dig a big deep hole to bury itself in, and all of there phones should be put in museums. Bye bye Blackberry!
mink, 14 Aug 2013as low specs and outdated os price should be under 100$.Actualy it will be more like 200$ if not more....
I guess BB didn't get the message, even with their OS 10 they are tooo late and too bad for them
I'm a BB fan....but I believe that they should try harder if they want to stand in front of android and others!!!
Z10 and Q10 were very goode!
They should try to make more phones with BB 10 OS!!!
anyway....if they want to sutvive,they should try more....
We hope the best for U BB....
This is a prototype of Curve7. The only modifications are:(1)DISPLAY Type IPS capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Size 480 x 360 pixels, 2.8 inches (~214 ppi pixel density)
- Optical trackpad
(2)5 MP, 2592x1944 pixels, LED flash
I think there is a great strategy behind this action from bb.this phone is out of date and poor specifications.so what is your purpose from this bb??!!?!:*)
Of course this brand has a difficult
time to survive!
~difficult and unnecessary trackpad
~uncomfortable keyboard design
(comparing to samsung chat)
~small display size
~Make a 5 inch or 7 inch display!
~Make a blackberry style keyboard (who cares about extra long phone as long as typing text is superb!)
~Adopt android operating system!
