BlackBerry revealed two new smartphones, the Z3 and the Q20, at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona yesterday. BlackBerry, famous for its qwerty-keyboard mobile phones, opted to debut at the MWC with one touchscreen smartphone, the BlackBerryZ3, and one qwerty-keyboard phone, the BlackBerry Q20.
The touchscreen BlackBerry Z3 features a 5-inch display, and it runs BlackBerry 10.2.1 OS. The smartphone is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, has 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 5 megapixels back camera. The Z3, or Jakarta, its codename, is expected to hit the shelves in April, for less than $200.
BlackBerry Z3 will be available in Indonesia only, where the BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) messaging is very popular. In the future though, according to John Chen, BlackBerry's chief executive, the 3G smartphone will reach different parts of southeast Asia, and not just Indonesia. It would also go global as a high-speed 4G version.
BlackBerry is making a comeback with their standard qwerty keyboard in the traditionally-outlined BlackBerry Q20, or the Classic. This smartphone offers you the best emailing experience on its 3.5-inch display, keyboard and trackpad. Chen says that the Q20 will be targeted to clients in the corporate and government sector. The Q20 smartphone will be available by the end of this year.
According to renowned analysts, the two BlackBerry devices by the Canadian tech manufacturer are a real hit, as the smartphones are bound to appeal to different groups of fans.
The BlackBerry used to be an essential smartphone for every businessman or official, due to its secure emailing. However, it has lost the market share battle to rival devices. Chen claims BlackBerry will lower the prices on its devices in order to regain some of the market share. In addition, Chen says, "We don't want to lose the rest of the market, but for the next 18 months I think you see us very much intent on going back and winning the regulated industries."
