The Blackberry Leap smartphone is a departure from the most recent products, such as the Classic and Passport. It is a fully touchscreen model, similar to the Z10 and Z30. The formal ID number is the Z20 and it actually just arrived at the FCC seeking approval.
What is this phone all about? Well, if you are still loyal to the Blackberry brand, its fairly exciting. It has a five inch display with 1280 x 720 HD resolution, 294 PPI, 8MP Rear camera, 16GB of expandable storage and has up-to 25 hrs of battery life according to the specs put out by BlackBerry. BlackBerry has priced the device at $275 USD and its going to be available in April or May.
A hands on preview of the device has been released by Blackberry, giving us a sense of the form factor.
