  • Budget BlackBerry 9720 winds clock back to BB 7, but who`s biting?

    The announcement of the BlackBerry 9720 was not met with widespread excitement, largely because it is running the older BlackBerry 7 operating system and not BlackBerry 10. The company has repeatedly pointed out that there`s life in the old BB7 yet. Is it right, or is this an unwelcome step backwards? We got hold of the handset to find out. See, we literally got hold of it Before we jump into the underwhelming specs it`s important to note that th...

    Pros: Good battery life, Physical keyboard, MicroSD slot, BlackBerry security,

    Cons: Lack of apps, Slow, dated interface, Small display, Looks and feels cheap,

    Verdict: It`s slow. It`s dated. The display is tiny. There aren`t many apps. It looks and feels cheap. It runs the older BlackBerry 7, not the newer BlackBerry 10. And people wonder why BlackBerry`s in trouble. Better phones are widely available....

    It`s worth pointing out that the Canadian device maker was able to increase its market share in emerging markets like India, South East Asia and Africa by selling cheaper devices running its legacy OS at a time when it was being ditched by customers in mature markets like the US and Europe with the rise of Android and iOS. It priced the BlackBerry 10 devises much higher, positioning them in the premium segment, so new devices based on older versi...

    What’s this, BlackBerry has release the new 9720 into the wild, which sports BBOS 7.1 and a design we became accustomed to until everything changed at the end of 2012, but why is it here now? Let’s take a look. Haven’t we been here before? Apparently not, but it’s difficult not to get a sense of déjà vu when ogling the Blackberry 9720 for the first time. Unlike to Q5, with which it shares a classic BlackBerry...

    Pros: Excellent call quality Lightweight Great battery life

    Cons: Outdated OS Unattractive design Overpriced
