BlackBerry 9720

Description

The BlackBerry 9720 is a brand new device, but it runs on the dated BlackBerry 7 operating system. In exchange for that shortcoming, it comes at an affordable price and features BlackBerry’s signature full QWERTY keyboard. Other specs include a 2.8-inch 320 x 480 pixel display, 800MHz processor with 512MB RAM, and a 1,450mAh battery with the pretty average 7 hours of talk time.

Pros

  • Hardware QWERTY keyboard

Cons

  • Thick body (0.47 inches)
