    BlackBerry C-series 'Americano' might combine best of the Z and Q

    BlackBerry isn't doing so hot, with losses and layoffs in its future, but the latest leak says that its next scrabbling handhold on the receding cliff face of profitability is a new budget line called the BlackBerry C-series.

    The BlackBerry C (code name: Americano) is said to combine the best existing BlackBerry 10 devices like the Z- and Q-series phones: sleek design with budget specs, respectively.

    That will keep the BlackBerry C series looking fresh to consumers while appealing with a lower price point than the high-end Z-line, like the just-announced BlackBerry Z30. Or at least, that's reportedly the idea.

    If it's true, the Americano will be mucking about in the just-released iPhone 5C's neck of the sea, which may not be the best place to tread water right now.

    The leaks keep flowing

    News broke today that BlackBerry has agreed to an initial offer that could see it bought and taken private again by a group led by financial holdings company.

    That pretty-big-deal news didn't stop leaks of its alleged smartphone plans, however.

    As far as detailed specs, we've got little to go on where the BlackBerry C is concerned, besides the promise of specs similar to the chunky, QWERTY-equipped, budget-priced BlackBerry Q5.

    Besides that, the only morsel is that the initial BlackBerry C-series device will reportedly have a full-sized 4.2-inch 720 x 1280 touchscreen, no QWERTY and 4G LTE compatibility.

    The phone is said to be in testing stages currently.

    Inevitable comparisons

    Word of the BlackBerry C-series fits perfectly with the company's recent admission that it will back off from the consumer market soon and release just four new phones in the future, instead of the previously planned six.

    Of those four unannounced devices, two are high-end offerings and two are entry-level phones, like what the BlackBerry C is being described as.

    Comparisons with the iPhone 5C will be inevitable (imagine if they call it the BB C5?), but the "budget" iPhone has done pretty well for itself since its launch alongside the iPhone 5S this past weekend.

    Combined sales for both new iPhones hit 9 million in just three days, though Apple isn't detailing the exact split and TechRadar's digging indicates tentatively that the higher-end iPhone 5S is, in fact, in greater demand.

    Quoted from Techradar.

    BB's are on a low these days i guess..with Nokia starting to gain popularity because if its Lumia series..i think the BB's have to come up with really something interesting.

    .. and the fact is the market remains flexible and demands to get the hold of it, once you get it you are an apt fit in to it just like look back some years back what the good the bb was in mobile selling .. situations can always be turned, have you enough guts is all matters

    The market is always flexible. You will never know what is going to happen next. Which is why the risk is also pretty great. I advice a thorough research of the market before going for anything.

    bb has been strongly bounded with its traditional wide querty keypad style along with the not so attractive front having so tiny display .. whether the existing genre love to play with the media features and functions provided in the phone .. they need to look deep in this regard to make them start delivering again
