A few days ago the BlackBerry Z30 smartphone was announced, it is the company’s first phablet powered by the BB10 platform. Just yesterday the company announced that it is going to reduce its product roadmap from six to four devices, two high end and two entry level. While there’s no information on what those four devices are going to be, a new BlackBerry smartphone from the alleged “Cafe-Series” or “C-Series” has been pictured. This is said to be an entry level device which carries the codename “Americano.”

As per rumors, the C-Series will include two devices, one full touch and one with a QWERTY keyboard. Since they’re supposed to be entry-level devices, specifications aren’t expected to be that grand. Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processors with 5 megapixel cameras and 4.2 – 4.5 inch 720p displays are rumored. There’s really not much known about the BlackBerry C-Series devices at this point in time, there’s certainly no information about the pricing and availability. Yesterday BlackBerry announced that it expects to take a $1 billion hit in operating loss for Q2, most of which is accounted for by unmoved inventory. Up till now the three BB10 devices it has released, barring the Z30, haven’t been able to bring back its lost market share. Will the C-Series be able to perform? Time will tell. [Image via BBIN]
