The problem with the phone is that is shows how the Canadian OEM has not learned its lesson. This model will apparently feature a dual-core processor and a 720 x 1280 resolution. Once again, BlackBerry wastes an opportunity to offer a phone with specs that at least are matching what is on top-shelf Android models.
BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins has said that this model gets him excited which makes us wonder if he has actually looked at what the competition is offering. Has he not learned his lesson from the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 and the release of the BlackBerry Q10? And even if he is dressing up the company for a sale, he still needs to show that there is some sort of future for the company to attract buyers.
Check out the video of what looks like the first 5 inch BlackBerry, and hope that it is not too late for BlackBerry to give the phone the specs it needs to compete against comparable Android units.
