    This is probably the most important smartphone that BlackBerry will launch in 2013. You see, the Z10 and Q10 were designed for diehards, gadget lovers and those who desired a like-for-like replacement for their aging Bolds. Unfortunately for CEO Thorsten Heins, those people were never the total sum of RIM`s (now BlackBerry`s) customer base. After all, it was the budget-conscious crowd that embraced BBM to the point where London`s 2011 civil unres...

    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 10 gets slightly more affordable, but does that make any better?

    BlackBerry 10 gets ever so slightly more affordable with the introduction of the BlackBerry Q5 to the Canadian firm`s smartphone lineup. But don`t go thinking this is a bargain basement offering, because it carries a mid to high tier price tag. Unveiled at BlackBerry`s annual Live conference in Orlando in May 2013, the BlackBerry Q5 was hotly rumoured under the moniker BlackBerry R10, and while the name was a bit of a surprise at launch, pretty m...

    Pros: 4G enabled, Fast web browsing, MicroSD slot, Decent BlackBerry Hub,

    Cons: Chunky plastic case, Non-removable battery, Average keyboard, Awkward screen size,

    Verdict: The BlackBerry Q5 is difficult to love. Sure it`s got all the core smartphone features, but it doesn`t really excel at anything, apart from perhaps web browsing, but even that`s hampered somewhat by the pokey 3.1-inch display. It`s a Q10 for people w...

    The BlackBerry Q5 is the third BlackBerry 10 handset and the first to target a more wallet-friendly price tag.It has a physical QWERTY keyboard similar to the BlackBerry Q10 and is aimed at the young people who want a cheap phone that`s good for messaging. It`s a replacement of sorts to the likes of the BlackBerry Curve 9320 and comes in black, white, red and pink.On paper, it`s a stong mid-market phone. The Q5 features a 1.2GHz dual-core process...

    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 you’re out? Read on for the SlashGear review. We cr...
