Just last week we managed to catch a glimpse at alleged photos of the BlackBerry “Kopi”. For those unfamiliar with the device, it’s apparently one of the devices that BlackBerry had cancelled before the company decided to go ahead with the BlackBerry Z3 and the BlackBerry Q20. We’re not sure why BlackBerry decided to cancel the phone, but interestingly enough it has been getting a lot of attention as of late, thanks to even more leaked photos.
The photos were leaked by genk.vn and this time it is seen next to the BlackBerry Q5 for comparison purposes. As far as we can tell, both devices look pretty much the same, save for the silver accent at the bottom of the BlackBerry Kopi. In fact for all we know, perhaps the Kopi’s alleged cancellation could be due to the fact that it is too similar to the BlackBerry Q5 which would be pretty pointless.
However with all these recent leaks, we can’t help but think that the device isn’t as dead as we’d like to believe. BlackBerry did state that they are planning on appealing to fans and loyalists who apparently prefer BlackBerry’s QWERTY devices rather than their full touchscreen handsets like the BlackBerry Z10 and the Z30, but what do you guys think?
