BlackBerry Q5 video demo

16 May 2013

BlackBerry's Q5 smartphone delivers the BlackBerry 10 platform in a mid-range handset that is designed to be less costly than the current BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10.

Announced at BlackBerry Live in Orlando, the Qwerty BlackBerry Q5 will be available from July in select markets, including the UK.

The device carries a less impressive set of specifications than the Q10 and Z10, but is expected to appeal to buyers put off by the premium price of those models.The Q5 has a Qwerty keyboard and 3.1in touchscreen.

BlackBerry is hoping the Q5 will help the firm to better target emerging markets such as Southeast Asia and Latin America, where BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) is already widely used.

However, it may also boost sales in markets such as the UK, depending on its price, which BlackBerry has yet to disclose.

The BlackBerry Q5 has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 2GB memory and 8GB flash storage, expandable via micro SD slot. The 120g handset supports LTE or HSPA+ networks and has an embedded 2180mAh battery.
