New arrivals: BlackBerry Leap in Singapore for business users

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

The mid-tier 5-inch all-touch smartphone is now available in Singapore for S$389 from M1, Singtel and StarHub.

The new BlackBerry Leap is an all-touch alternative to the mid-tier BlackBerry Classic.

The new BlackBerry Leap is an all-touch alternative to the mid-tier BlackBerry Classic.

BlackBerry Leap is basically the all-touch version of the Classic – the other BlackBerry mid-tier smartphone – for those who prefer an onscreen keyboard over the traditional QWERTY keyboard in the similarly-priced sibling.

Like the Classic, the new Leap is targeted mainly at the business user whose main priority is to get work done – effectively and efficiently – while on the go.

BlackBerry Leap features the latest BlackBerry 10.3.1 operating system, an edge-to-edge five-inch HD display and more than a full day’s battery power.

Check out the first impressions below that I had from trying out the phone over lunch.
