The BlackBerry 9720 is targeted at budget-minded consumers in Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America. North American users need not apply (yet).
But it's also not above taking a few steps back. This week, the Canadian company announced it would introduce a new (but also entirely old-fashioned) smart phone called the BlackBerry 9720, which clearly harkens back to the Curve devices of yore. According to BlackBerry, the 9720 will run the BlackBerry 7 operating system (a few iterations behind the current BB10 OS) and include a QWERTY keypad, an FM radio, and the BBM messaging platform.
