At Mobile World Congress (MWC) today, we unveiled the latest BlackBerry smartphone. I’ve decided this is my new favourite device. All-touch? Yes, please. The BlackBerry Leap is built for those rising stars who value productivity, communication, and take security seriously. With its modern design, brilliant 5-inch HD display, and battery life that powers through 25 hours of heavy use*, the BlackBerry Leap gives you the power to succeed.

When you have the right tool, small steps can become giant leaps. Up-and-comers find their stride, and great achievements fall within your grasp. This is the spirit of our valued BlackBerry users; this is the spirit of the BlackBerry Leap.

Everything You Expect from a BlackBerry

The BlackBerry Leap fits nicely into the BlackBerry portfolio, offering an affordable device for those out there who prefer an all-touch option. It boasts the features of a ‘hero’ device with the price tag of an entry-level one. When serious work has to be done, when an email from your boss can’t be missed, and when you need a trusted secure device that can power through a full day of work, BlackBerry Leap will be at the ready so you can grab opportunities as they come.

The huge selection of apps from BlackBerry World and the Amazon Appstore render beautifully on the 16×9 (aspect ratio) display, and with perks like “Free App of the Day,” you won’t run out of new things to discover.
