BlackBerry 9720 Smartphone Gets Official

BlackBerry today introduced the new BlackBerry 9720 smartphone. Available in a variety of colors, the new smartphone comes packed with all of your favorite social apps to let you spark the conversation.

"The BlackBerry 9720 smartphone gives you all the essentials of the BlackBerry smartphone experience to support a communications centric lifestyle. It has the best keyboard and functionality for BBM, as well as an updated BlackBerry 7 OS that adds many enhancements," said Carlo Chiarello, Executive Vice President for Products at BlackBerry.

With the new device, Blackberry hopes to attract customers who wish to upgrade from a feature phone or entry-level Android or Windows Phone device.

The BlackBerry 9720 smartphone features a BlackBerry Keyboard, a 2.8" touchscreen and trackpad, offers generous battery life, and numerous enhancements including:

- BlackBerry 7 OS - The new BlackBerry 9720 smartphone comes with BlackBerry 7 OS version 7.1, which features an updated interface that lets you swipe to unlock the phone or access the camera from the lock screen, as well as additional enhancements.

- BBM - The new BlackBerry 9720 smartphone features a dedicated BBM key that makes it quick to access the popular mobile social network, and with its BlackBerry Keyboard, messaging your BBM friends is easy. It also includes BBM Voice, which lets you chat over Wi-Fi for free. The latest version of BBM, which features BBM Channels, will also soon be available for download on the BlackBerry World storefront, letting you tune in and connect with the businesses, brands, celebrities and groups.

- Built-in FM Radio - With the BlackBerry 9720 smartphone you can listen to local FM stations, and automatically let your BBM friends know what station you're currently listening to.

- Multicast to Make Yourself Heard in an Instant - The refreshed BlackBerry 7 OS lets you quickly type your message once and post it simultaneously and instantly to your friends on BBM, Twitter and Facebook. You can even snap a picture and post it to multiple social networks all at the same time, right from the camera app.

- Discover New Possibilities - Access BlackBerry 7 apps and games on BlackBerry World.

- Smart for Business Too - With BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, the BlackBerry 9720 smartphone offers business productivity features with mobile device management, application management and security.
