Following Orange and T-Mobile, EE has begun takings pre-orders for the BlackBerry Q5, offering the handset free on its range of 4G pay-monthly tariffs.
The UK’s sole LTE network has slashed the £49.99 upfront fee for the Q5 as part of an introductory offer. It has also knocked a fiver off the monthly bill for the first 5,000 pre-orders, meaning you can snap up the phone from £26 per month as opposed to £31.
Aside from a saving of up to £169, this also entitles takers to unlimited calls and texts, plus 500MB data for surfing and streaming content on EE’s super-fast network.
Widely seen as a spiritual successor to the popular Curve range, the BlackBerry Q5 is powered by the all-new BlackBerry 10 operating system and features the time-honoured physical QWERTY keyboard that BlackBerrys are so famous for.
In terms of specs, the Q5 is home to a 3.1-inch IPS LCD touchscreen display with a 720 x 720 resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and a five-megapixel camera that records in full 1080p HD.
Available in black and white, demand for the BlackBerry Q5 is thought to be very strong, so we highly recommend pre-ordering fast to take advantage of the reduced pricing.
