BlackBerry Q20


The BlackBerry Q20 features a 3.5-inch touchscreen display and a physical keyboard. BlackBerry calls it a “Classic” and it brings back the Menu, Back, Send and End buttons. It even has the good old trackpad BlackBerry is famous for.

John Chen, BlackBerry’s Executive Chairman and CEO said in a statement

In my first 90 days on the job, I consistently heard from our ardent BlackBerry customers that the hard buttons and trackpad are an essential part of the BlackBerry QWERTY experience, that made their BlackBerry smartphone their go-to productivity tool.

BlackBerry Z3


The BlackBerry Z3 features a 5-inch 540 x 960 pixels qHD display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and 1.5GB of RAM. Internal storage stands at 8GB. BlackBerry hasn’t given information on external storage.

For a rear-facing camera, the Z3 sports a 5 megapixel camera while its front-facing camera is 1.1 megapixels. Connection options include USB 2.0, WiFi, Bluetooth and HSDPA.

The BlackBery Z3 will launch in Indonesia in April and will cost below $200.

BlackBerry’s blog only highlights its Indonesia launch of the Z3 we can’t say yet if the Q20 and the Z3 will be launching in Nigeria but we’re expecting it. BlackBerry devices have been launched here consistently in the last 3 years.

    The Z3 is a great option in Indonesia. BlackBerry will gain some marketshare and I am certain the Q20 will do well in the US market, though I don’t see BB ever surpassing Windows, let alone iOS and Android. Alas, they have the best phones but they’re inability to innovate brought them down. Great article, Binjo.

    Z3:n är enastående val i Indonesiska. BlackBerry ska få marknadsdel och jag är för säker Q20:n kommer att gör bra inom US-marknaden. Dock jag inte förutser BlackBerry att gör bättre än till exempel Windows och iOS och Android. Nej… ändå BlackBerry har bästa enheterna då skulle kunda sig inte innovera så är solnedgång för dem. Bra artikel Binjo.
