BlackBerry Q5 due July 1st

Good news today for anyone waiting on BlackBerry’s new budget BB10 device – we have today received confirmation of a price drop to 275 GBP ex. VAT against our initial reports. The device has also been brought forward a couple of weeks so we are now expecting our first stock by Monday July 1st.

BlackBerry Q5 July 1st

The Q5 features the iconic BlackBerry keyboard like the similar and widely popular Q10, however comes in as a response to some concern over the former’s comparatively high price point. BlackBerry have passed down savings with a switch to a polycarbonate chassis and a change to a 720 x 720 IPS LCD panel and 5 megapixel camera. The Q5 still features the full BB10 operating system with no amendments.

You can place a pre-order for the BlackBerry Q5 HERE, we will be in contact with all customers who place a pre-order to take payment closer to the launch date

BlackBerry Q5 now available to pre-order

If a front facing keyboard is for you then you do not have a lot of choice today in terms of smartphones. The Q5 is one such option.

We have today enabled the pre-order facility on this phone through clove.co.uk.

The exact price and release date is subject to change, but currently we expect the handset to sell for £295+VAT with the first units expected around the middle of July.

BlackBerry announces BBM Channels

BlackBerry ChannelsWe saw some big announcements at BlackBerry Live yesterday; BBM is coming to Android iOS and there’s a new budget BlackBerry to be released, the Q5. As well as this, BlackBerry has announced BBM Channels – a Twitter-like service for BlackBerry Messenger.

The beta release of BlackBerry Channels can be downloaded from BlackBerry Beta Zone.

With BBM Channels, organisations or individual users can create a stream on content to share and interact with others in real-time. To promote the beta launch of BBM Channels, Lewis Hamilton joined Thorsten Heins on stage to announce the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS channel.

The idea behind channels is that organisations can publish content and then discuss it directly with fans. For such organisations there are built-in tools to monitor engagement and assess followers. Channels can be managed directly from a BlackBerry handset or from the web.

For users, there is a new discovery tool for finding new channels, which can be shared using a BB Pin or QR code. There’s also the ability to subscribe to a channel – much like Twitter – so that you receive updates as soon as new content is published.

The new BBM Channels beta is available for smartphones running BlackBerry 10 (the Q10 and the Z10) and BlackBerry handsets running BlackBerry 5 OS through 7.1.

Be sure to let us know what you think if you give it a try!

BlackBerry Messenger coming to Android and iOS this summer

BlackBerry has announced that it plans to make its popular messaging service, BBM, available across multiple platforms this summer. The news emerged from BlackBerry live 2013, which kicked off yesterday in Orlando, Florida. 

BlackBerry Messenger for Android

BlackBerry Messenger has long been one of the exclusive selling points of BlackBerry handsets. However, while the service useful initially as a USP, its lack of availability on other platforms has left room for rival services such as WhatsApp to gain considerable market share in the mobile messaging market. 

The first release of BBM for Android and iOS (subject to approval from the Play Store and the App Store respectively) will make the service’s core features available to users, including: 

  • Delivery reports/read notices
  • Multi-person messaging
  • Voice note sharing
  • BlackBerry groups, which can include up to 30 users and share calendar appointments, photos and more

Later on in 2013 BlackBerry expects to add functionality for its newly announced BlackBerry Channels (a Twitter-like service for BBM), voice chat and video chat to its Android/iOS apps, which will be free to download.

BlackBerry is not the only company trying to unify its messaging service at the moment. Facebook recently stepped up its offering with improvements to Facebook Messenger (which now includes free voice calls in some regions), WhatsApp does not yet have voice calling, but is the most widespread cross-platfrom messaging app in many regions, Skype has long offered free voice calls and is being integrated with more of Microsoft’s services, plus Google is expected to announce a massive update to its messaging portfolio at Google I/O this week. 

It’ll be interesting to see which of the above makes it to the top first – a truly unified cross-platform messaging app would only leave room for one or two of these to be prevalent in the long run.
