BlackBerry Leap introduced in India
BlackBerry's latest handset, the BlackBerry Leap, was introduced in India this morning. Already available in other regions, the device will be offered for sale in India sometime early next week. Pricing will be announced at the same time. BlackBerry and Amazon sell the model in the U.S. for $275.

The BlackBerry Leap is equipped with a 5-inch 720 x 1280 resolution screen. This provides a pixel density of 294ppi. Under the hood is the greybeard Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU. The dual-core processor is clocked at 1.5GHz. The Adreno 225 GPU handles graphics. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. If additional memory is required, there is a 128GB capacity microSD slot available precisely for that reason. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP respectively, and BlackBerry says that the 2800mAh battery will give users enough juice for 25 hours of use.

The BlackBerry Leap comes with the latest build of the OS on board. BlackBerry 10.3.1 supports virtual voice-activated BlackBerry Assistant. The phone also comes with BlackBerry Blend which allows you to access content from your handset right on your PC screen. And both BlackBerry World and the Amazon appstore are pre-loaded to provide BlackBerry and Android apps, respectively.

No, this is certainly not a new flagship model from BlackBerry; but if you are looking for a serviceable device with many of the bells and whistles that BlackBerry offers, the new Leap will do the job.
