Dec 27, 2013 UK post Christmas sale - Pick up a BlackBerry 9720 for only £99.95

With many folk here in the UK waiting until after Christmas day for the sales to start with High Street and online retailers I thought it was worth pointing you in the direction of the price that Carphone Warehouse now has the BlackBerry 9720 up for. We published our UK PAYG price guide just recently, but things are already changing after the Boxing Day sales kicked in. Now at just £99.95 plus a £10 top-up and available in a range of colors this holds pretty good value for money in my book considering that some of the other UK networks are still offering the BlackBerry Curve 9320 at that price.

Time to turn the clock back - kind of. The BlackBerry 9720 is now on sale in the UK and we've been lucky enough to get our hands on one pretty sharpish. Whether BlackBerry should be releasing a new handset running BlackBerry 7 when BlackBerry 10 is now all the rage is a big topic of conversation, but it's here so in traditional CrackBerry fashion we have to bring you an unboxing. This one is a retail version so if you are looking to pick up the sub £200 BlackBerry you'll at least be able to see what comes with it.

With the BlackBerry 9720 now official, many retailers and carriers will start to release pricing details on the newest addition to the BlackBerry 7 family. Many people still question why such a device is needed but I can see many markets where this will certainly sell well, especially in the areas it is being targeted - EMEA, Asia and Latin America.

During the BlackBerry Q1 2014 conference call, BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins let it be known a new BlackBerry 7.1 device would be released soon and after many sneek peeks at it in unofficial capacity, the time has come to make it all official.

The BlackBerry 9720 takes on some of the styling from the BlackBerry Q5 while maintaining a cost-effective point of entry, which should serve its intended markets well. You can jump below to read on through the full press release from BlackBerry.

Aug 02, 2013 BlackBerry 9720 compared to Q5 on video

We've seen plenty of the upcoming BlackBerry 9720 so far, and though the resemblance to the recently-launched BlackBerry Q5 is obvious, until today we've yet to see the two devices side by side.

The video above runs through the hardware layout of either device, and we can see that there are a few subtle differences, including plug placement, presence of a convenience keys, rear finish, and shape of the edge. The 9720 is also briefly compared to the Q10 and Bold 9900. Anyone that knows Russian is welcome to give us the gist of the narration in the comments.

We've seen a few hands-on pictures of the upcoming BlackBerry 9720, but just in case those weren't quite clear enough, here are some press pictures that have recently bubbled up. There's an obvious Q5 influence here, and OS 7.1 is looking like it will be borrowing a few things from BB10, There's no carrier branding here, so no hints as to which markets we'll be seeing it in.

When the BlackBerry 9720 started to appear many BlackBerry 10 owners scoffed at the the idea of running a BlackBerry 7.1 device again but the fact is, there's still several markets where that device will do well. With that under consideration, we've already seen plenty of images of the 9720 in action but some new videos from BerryInsider have now popped up on YouTube showing off the device as well.

During the BlackBerry Q1 2014 conference call, BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins let it be known a new BlackBerry 7 device would be released soon. Before that, there was plenty of rumors one was coming but that sealed the deal for it. At this point, there's no official branding for the device that we're aware of but there is plenty of references in recent builds of BlackBerry Desktop Manager that suggest it will be a 'Curve' series device. But with that being said, we've seen stuff change before so alas, wait and see how it gets branded. Aside from that, the UAProf (viewable in Firefox) required for it has appeared on the BlackBerry website and confirms a few other details about the device.
