For the Nigerian Market, well we expect something that wont move past the N XX,XXX, We cant know until it comes nah

Speaking directly with TrustedReviews at BlackBerry Live in Orlando, Rob Orr, BlackBerry’s UK managing director, exclusively revealed that BlackBerry Q5 prices would see the handset line up on “the kind of £20 odd per month tariff.”

Formally unveiled during the BlackBerry Live keynote speech earlier in the week, the BlackBerry Q5 joins the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 as the only confirmed BB10 handsets to date, with the new wallet-friendly offering lining up with a physical QWERTY keyboard in tow.

“The Q5 brings the BlackBerry 10 proposition and democracies that proposition in to the mid-teir of the market, the kind of £20 odd per month tariff in the marketplace,” Orr told us.

Although a handset that is to target the entry-level youth market, with four varying hues seeing red and pink handsets thrown into the mix, it has been suggested that the cheaper BlackBerry Q5 will offer the Canadian manufacturer new avenues into enterprise sectors.

“The Q5 is a huge opportunity in the consumer world, but if you look at it from an enterprise business, not everyone will get the high-end phone in the enterprise business, so it lets us roll out volume in our enterprise customer base, bringing them BlackBerry 10,” Orr said.

Matching the physical QWERTY keyboard with a 3.1-inch touchscreen display, the BlackBerry Q5 adds a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera, and a 2-megapixel forward-facing snapper, alongside a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

Lining up at 10.8mm thick and 120g in weight, the BlackBerry Q5 boasts a 2100mAh Lithium-Ion battery and will hit retailers this summer.
