BlackBerry Q5 launched in Germany; QWERTY equipped unit comes only in black
Similar to the other QWERTY equipped BlackBerry 10 model already available, the BlackBerry Q10, the device has a 3.1 inch display with a 720 x 720 resolution. Unlike the premium QWERTY on the Q10, which harkens back to the spectacular QWERTY on the original BlackBerry Bold 9000, the keys on the Q5 are much more basic and are not arranged with frets to help separate each row of letters more easily.
Earlier this month, the BlackBerry Q5 was launched in the U.K. and in South Africa. Originally expected in emerging markets, the device is not expected to see the light of day in the U.S. Last month, a leaked picture showed off the BlackBerry Z5 which is expected to be the entry-level all-touch model for BlackBerry 10.

Price is the biggest reason why BB10 devices are doing so badly.
They priced this at 390 euros ($503) which is supposed to be a mid range device.
Good luck BB.

No D-pad. No programmable side button. Regressive.

Delusion of grandeur?
Please BB, you need to crawl all the way up from the bottom,
Don't expect to sell 10,000 units with that ludicrous price
