Blackberry Limited has unveiled its Blackberry Q20 smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2014 held in Barcelona, Spain promising that the smartphone will deliver longer battery life and enhanced keyboard experience.
The new BlackBerry Q20 smartphone will feature ‘Menu’, ‘Back’, ‘Send’ and ‘End’ buttons and the integrated trackpad to enable the fast efficient navigation and one-handed use that has endeared the brand to its QWERTY customers, according to the Canadian smartphone maker.
John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO at BlackBerry says “In my first 90 days on the job, I consistently heard from our ardent BlackBerry customers that the hard buttons and trackpad are an essential part of the BlackBerry QWERTY experience, that made their BlackBerry smartphone their go-to productivity tool. I want these customers to know that we heard them, and this new smartphone will be for them.”
According to Chen, “We’re delighted to announce the new BlackBerry Q20 smartphone, which is designed to give you the distinct experience that every BlackBerry QWERTY loyalist and high-productivity business customer absolutely loves. With the BlackBerry Q20 smartphone, you’ll get the familiar hard buttons and trackpad that you want, along with the best email service, the best keyboard experience and the best battery life possible.”
The BlackBerry Q20 smartphone comes with the latest enhancements in BlackBerry 10. The 3.5 inch touchscreen smartphone will be available in the second half of 2014, according to the company.
