BlackBerry could launch a new flagship smartphone this year, due for the holiday season according to a report. Named BlackBerry A10 is a full touch smartphone running updated BlackBerry 10 operating system and will boast better specs than the current BB Z10.
The A10 codenamed “Arista” will be a full-touch screen phone unlike the Q10 launched today in India that came with a physical keyboard. According to a report on CNet, the A10 has atleast one US carrier support now, Sprint Nextel and A10 is not exclusive to Sprint that means it will be carried by other carriers too.
BlackBerry is launching devices to increase its lost market share, although Z10 is a competing device it carries a premium pricing over the competing devices. Even Galaxy S4, Xperia Z are cheaper than this phone. BlackBerry is also launching its BBM message service on Android and iOS soon.
