We all know that out of so many countries in the world, BlackBerry is huge in Indonesia for some strange reason. In fact, BlackBerry is not a company that many people are willing to back up to make a comeback at this point in time with disappointing quarterly reports as well as whispers of its co-founder wanting to take it private. Heck, even the latest BlackBerry Z30 flagship device which was announced recently could not increase the enthusiasm for the brand by much, and we have seen yet another entry level BlackBerry C Series device being mentioned not too long ago. It seems that there is yet another unannounced, low-cost BlackBerry 10 smartphone that is in the works, where it has been given the codename Kopi. The BlackBerry Kopi will be a throwback to the old while toeing the line with the new – it features a combination of a touchscreen display and a hardware QWERTY keyboard.
It is rumored that the BlackBerry Kopi will not be as powerful as the budget-friendly Q5, which makes it even more entry level, although there are whispers of a faster chipset and a removable battery. Forget about LTE networks on the BlackBerry Kopi, and considering how ‘Kopi’ means ‘coffee’ in the Malay and Indonesian languages, it might just be headed for emerging markets.
