Filing suggests possible host of cheaper BlackBerry phone in US
The BlackBerry Q5, the cheaper alternative to the BlackBerry Q10 that is destined for emerging markets, could be heading to the United States soon, according to an FCC filing. A device matching the appearance of the BB10 OS smartphone has been spotted in the listing, suggesting it may make an appearance in the US after all.
Q5 mimics general design of Q10, heads to emerging markets
BlackBerry has revealed a BB10 smartphone aimed at emerging markets, at the same time as announcing the BB10.1 update's availability for the flagship Z10 device. The Q5, a remarkably similar device to the Q10 and leaked last week, provides the same QWERTY keyboard and 3.1-inch touchscreen as its more-expensive stablemate, but in a cheaper package.
