Smartphone makers believe in trickle-down economics. They build their portfolios top to bottom, looking to get as much bang out of the flagship as they can and, after the hype around it has settled, they bring out the more affordable packages to keep the cash rolling in. The big question - always - is how much of the flagship specs will trickle down the ranks. Having delivered the latest BlackBerry 10 OS in a classic messenger form factor, a midr...
Verdict: With BlackBerry charging a ridiculous amount of money on the Q10 - it`s hard to find under $600 / ?490 SIM-free. Seriously, the first BB10 QWERTY handset costs more than a Z10, and any competing flagship, so one would think it`s an opportunity the Q5...

BlackBerry needs a new smartphone for the mass market, and the BlackBerry Q5 is its attempt to deliver. Cheaper than the Q10, though offering another sturdy QWERTY keyboard for text-addicts, the Q5 pares back the specifications (and, it has to be said, the design) to boost the BlackBerry 10 line-up by 50-percent. Is it third time lucky for the plucky Canadian company, or three strikes and youâ€™re out? Read on for the SlashGear review. We cr...
