One of BlackBerry’s biggest challenges after the release of its initial high-end BlackBerry 10 smartphones was to launch a lower-cost device capable of shoring up the company’s market share in key emerging markets. The company did just that on Tuesday by announcing the BlackBerry Q5, a fully QWERTY keyboard BlackBerry 10 device that will launch in July in select markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America. The device features a 3.1-inch touch display and comes in multiple colors including black, silver and red. BlackBerry has not yet disclosed the device’s full specifications and pricing information.
