Blackberry SA debuts the 9720

Just when we thought Blackberry has finally phased out OS 7 devices, a rather unusual press release land on our desk.

Blackberry SA finaly released the much awaited (heres why its much awaited) 9720 last week, by sending out compact leather bound notebooks with a USB carrier to the press.

The phone has a 2.8-inch 480 x 360 display (214ppi) above a “re-engineered” (but distinctly Curve-like) thumbpad, a 5-megapixel rear camera and 512MB of RAM. There’s also a dedicated BBM key to take you straight to the messaging app and the OS has been tweaked with a not-so-revolutionary onscreen button to make photo sharing easier. The handset is destined to hit a much, much lower price point than the Q5.
