BlackBerry’s latest ammunition in its fight to become competitive in the smartphone market once again is Leap, an evolved edition of the Z10. Canadians will be able to purchase the Leap for $349.
Due to Canada’s weak dollar, consumers in United States, United Kingdom, France and Germany can purchase the smartphone through ShopBlackBerry for $275. While the device is currently available for pre-order in all of these locations including Canada, there is no solid confirmation on its official release date in Canada as of yet.
Leap is the first all-touch BlackBerry released by the company in over a year. The device has a five inch HD display, front and rear facing cameras, and promises up to 25 hours of heavy battery usage.
BlackBerry Leap comes preloaded with the Amazon Appstore, which will come in handy for users wishing to download Android applications.
