The phone also has integrated support for voice calls over Wi-Fi. Other connectivity features like Bluetooth, etc are also present.

Coupled with its RAM and internal storage, this device can be considered a good buy for those looking for good QWERTY phones, and of course, the signature features of Blackberry.
