The new BlackBerry Q5 smartphone will be available in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America by mid July but BlackBerry-ME were kind enough to send me a device to try it out yesterday. The first thing I had to do was go to the airport and register it (As per the new Telecom Ministry regulations), so I didn’t have the chance to test it yet.
I currently carry a BlackBerry Curve for work purposes and I’ve been wanting to change it for a newer one but I wasn’t convinced of the BlackBerry Z10 (No Keyboard) and thought the Q10 was a bit too expensive. Having said that, the Q5 comes at a much lower price and looks like a great replacement for the BB Curve (Or even the BB Bold).
I will hopefully post a quick review about it very soon.
BASH IT! BAAAAASHHHHH
It’s a bit late now, but you don’t need to go to the airport. Any MTC or Alpha location will do this for you (per the guy at the Phone Registration desk at the airport). That’s what I did.
Even though Instagram CEO confirmed that Instagram won’t launch an App for your platform anytime soon, Blackberry choose to take the first step.
Now you can easily take a photo without cropping it into the square you’re forced to fit your picture in. LOL
