blacberry q5 is a very nice value phone for what its worth. some people dont need the highest end specs and all that stuff, they just need a mid range, speedy phone. the physical keyboard is a nice bonus, but ive grown used to swype so my typing will be faster with the virtual keyboard than the blackberry one. still a verynice phone though, i checked it out at the event today, its very simple and the bb10 os is zippy and fast. very similar to the q10 but the q10's keyboard feels more premium. thanks all!
Please launch in India at appropriately. Don't ignore the Indian market, we love blackberry. Its upto to BB how they want to treat us.
Rronald_25, 14 May 2013If not because of the news regarding BB10 cross platform, I might consider this as my secondar... moreBB10 is mobile OS which is not cross platform. What is cross platform is BBM (App). You can't install BB10 on any non-BB handset.
Chirag, 14 May 2013I am waiting for this BB....move blackberry .... Keep it up...IF you are not like this phone just throw out our window i will catch it
it's really nice phone!! at least it got the Snapdragon chips instead of the omap chips(even though it's good)
Woow! Nice.. I really like blackberry design. I am qwerty pad hard fan u know. If it cost is cheap. I think I want buy it now! This design look great!
Impressive difference, unique, simply,
Indonesian people will really wait and fall-in-love for it.
BlackBerry largest market is in Indonesia :D.
but take notes, if the price (youngster)is suitable with spesifications.
BB already know dey av issues wit batteries and yet dey still build phones with non removable batteries? Abah why na? Wat is wrong if the battery of this phone is user accessible? It should av been a removable batterry in my own opinion.
people just hate blackberry for nothing,,,,these phones r nice...and we should understand they wont last forever
2100 battery ! Very efficient for a 3.1 inch screen and such specifications ! will last long probably
Nokia should learn from Blackberry, samsung and motorola to make good looking and compact qwerty phones with large screens. Nokias all qwertys are ugly, bulky with small screen and bad keypads.Better ones are e5 and asha 210.
If not because of the news regarding BB10 cross platform, I might consider this as my secondary phone. Now I just need to wait until summer to install BB10 on my N7100.
The only reason my secondary phone is Bold 9780 is because R10 is too f***ing expensive (not worth it) & I need BB to communicate with all my friends in Indonesia, Malaysia & India, other than that it almost useless.
wow.........the battery is not removable.........not good at all. Once the battery has a problem, that's the end of the phone.
