The next device from the BlackBerry 10 portfolio is the already announced BlackBerry Q5 but before it ends up in the hands of consumers in select markets consisting of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America, there are a number of certification tests it must go through.
One of those certifications comes from the Global Certification Forum to ensure global interoperability between mobile devices and networks and newly listed today in their database, you will find the SQR100-2 variation supporting LTE (3, 7, 20), HSPA+ (1, 2, 5/6, 8) and Quad band GSM.
There's nothing really shocking to be found here but if nothing else, maybe we'll see the BlackBerry Q5 turn up before July. Normally, devices get uncovered by the GCF just right before they're ready to launch but where BlackBerry already announced this, maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part due to me personally wanting to see yet another BlackBerry 10 device on store shelves, even if it's not in my region.
