bb9720-lead.jpg

 

No one can pretend it's business as usual at BlackBerry, but for the moment the company is pressing on with new releases. Today marks the official launch of the heavily-leaked 9720, which actually takes the whole carry-on-regardless approach a bit too literally by sticking with BB 7.1 instead of the new (and nice) BB OS 10. The phone has a 2.8-inch 480 x 360 display (214ppi) above a "re-engineered" (but distinctly Curve-like) thumbpad, a 5-megapixel rear camera and 512MB of RAM. There's also a dedicated BBM key to take you straight to the messaging app and the OS has been tweaked with a not-so-revolutionary onscreen button to make photo sharing easier. The handset is destined for Europe, Asia and Latin America "in the coming weeks" and ought to hit a much, much lower price point than the Q5.

Now why would I buy this phone with an old OS plopped into it?
