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.

    Blackberry’s only chance to avoid its imminent death is to adopt Android, the most professional OS ever! BB OS is so like Windows, both are old-school tech kaya walang appzzz ang gamezzz!

    Hahaha magsama yung BB OS at Windows kasi parehong bulok at halos walang apps di gaya ng Android halos araw-araw may apps and games, lolz.

    Dito sa car aircon repair business ko, nag-deploy kami from bulok na Windows to super-shiny na Android. Hahaha, mamatay sa inggit yung Windoze users losers dyan kasi halos araw-araw may bagong apps and games sa Android. Android is the only OS you’ll need if you’re a real professional!

    PC users suckers losers!

      You’re obviously a troll. I’ve always wondered why many netizens feed you.

      By just reading at your comments here on Yugatech, I can clearly see how sad your life really is. You’re using the internet as your outlet as a facade to cover up your really sad life. I can feel the sadness of your solitude. How every night you wish you will wake up in another day where you will no longer feel all your frustrations in life.

      You know this is true and I am now expecting another trolling from you. ;P

    abuzalzal adds traffic to this site. Could have been blocked by now if I own this site. Doesn’t bring value to discussions.

    why is there so much hate?? :(

  9. Abed says:

    Nasa magkano kaua ang price nito, the BB9900 ay nasa 10K na lang & free on plan 999 sa postpaid running OS7 din.

    Masyado kasing mahal ang BB10 phones the Q5 itself nasa 15K pataas na, maybe its time to lower the price range of their products. The company is dying IMO.

    I’m still using a blackberry pearl 8100 (circa 2006) up to now. It still suits my instant push email needs and bbm as well. Alternately, i also use a sony ericsson aspen windows 6.5.3 (circa 2010) for music listening. Both operating systems suit my personal needs, apps or lack of apps. For mobile games, I use ios.

  11. goodha says:

    @abed we have two ios devices in the house. 1 ipod touch (32gb) 4th gen and 1 iphone 4s only (16gb). I am not into candy crush thing. I go for shooting games like brothers in arms 2:global front, zombies gunship, iron force, dead trigger, dead space and of course the slash game infinity blade 2.

    • Abed says:

      Me too! I uninstalled Candy Crush, haha. Infinity Blade I & II, Samurai vs Zombie Defense II, Mirror’s Edge, Into The Dead, Badland, Smurf’s & Tiny Wings here. Yung ibang games naka save na lang sa iTunes hindi kasi kasya sa 16GB ko na iPhone 4S. :)

    This will be my next smartphone replacing my aging BB Curve 8520. I love dedicated hardware QWERTY keys on a smartphone. Okay lang kung old school ako at least happy ako.

    Language programs IMHO most of them are cross platform like C, C++, C#, Python or even and Android App and SDKs.

    BTW I’m posting this comment using Ubuntu Linux 12.04LTS.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this in my search for something regarding this.
