The BlackBerry Q5 is a new entry-level device from BlackBerry. The Q5 is coming soon and will be available in white, black, red and pink. It features a classic BlackBerry design with a full QWERTY keyboard in the style of the older Curve devices.

We spotted the Q5 a while back and have been calling it the BlackBerry R10, but now we know for sure that it is indeed the Q5.

Details and specifications have yet to be revealed, but we expect to hear more on the Q5 very soon.
