BlackBerry 9720 announced; super-social touch & type
Apart from BlackBerry’s line up for BB10 devices, they have just announced a new phone running BB OS 7 – the 9720. The phone is meant to ‘spark the conversation’ as it features the makings of a super social phone and a lot more.
The phone features both touch and type inputs to cater to different needs, and just as you’d expect, BBM, Voice and all of BlackBerry’s signatures come with the device such as Enterprise Server. As for the necessities, BlackBerry has you covered as it already has deep social media integration, a 5MP camera, an FM Radio and a shortcut button for instant BBM.
