BlackBerry might not be doing too well in the smartphone arena these days, what with some rather mediocre releases in recent memory, but this does not mean that the company is about to throw in the towel and call it a day! Far from it, as we have just witnessed how the Canada-based organization has just made an announcement at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) on the BlackBerry Leap.
This spanking new all-touch device has been specially developed for those who are just starting to make their way around the corporate world, and intend to go full speed ahead where productivity is concerned, in addition to communicating well without compromising on security. You can be sure that the modern design is bound to attract a fair number of curious folk, and since people are always interested in what kind of hardware specifications does a smartphone come with these days, we will get to that right away.
The BlackBerry Leap boasts of a brilliant 5” High Definition display at 294 pixels per inch pixel density, accompanied by an 8MP camera at the back that is full well capable of performing Full HD video recording, a front-facing 2MP camera, 2GB RAM 16GB of internal memory which can be further expanded by another 128GB via a microSD memory card slot, and a 25-hour battery life. All of it will chug along to a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 processor.
Connectivity options for the BlackBerry Leap will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE. You will find that this smartphone will run on the latest BlackBerry OS 10.3.1, where it will arrive with BlackBerry Hub and BlackBerry Assistant right out of the box to help you get started from the get go. There is no word on pricing or availability as at press time, but it ought to be out soon.

Where the tech geek is concerned, one can never have enough memory – and this is why we continue to see leaps and bounds happen in the world of personal storage. More than a decade ago, if you were to carry a 128MB USB flash drive, that would be a real big deal. Today, we are no longer dealing with MBs, but rather, GBs. Having said that, Android-powered smartphone owners would most probably be able to identify with the presence of a microSD memory card in their respective handsets, not to mention having to sort out the various photos, videos and other media files from time to time, simply because said microSD card has run out of space. Well, if you have a little bit of extra cash to spare, you might want to take time to check out SanDisk’s latest achievement – the 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card Premium Edition.
Yes, you can tell by its name alone, that this delivers an unprecedented level of storage space for your mobile devices – smartphones or tablets, it does not matter, as long as those devices happen to come with a compatible microSD memory card slot. Just what can you do with 200GB worth of storage space, all crammed onto something so small that it is roughly the same size as that of your fingernail? Well, we are looking at 20 hours of Full HD video, now how about that?
The 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card Premium Edition is able to be realized thanks to the lessons learned and applied after rolling out its predecessor, the 128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card in the previous year. Storage capacity has been increased by 56% within the same fingernail-sized form factor, where you no longer need to worry about storage limitations.
With such a large amount of storage space, data transfer speed is important as well, and thisPremium Edition microSD card does not disappoint as it offers transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s. Expect the 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card Premium Edition to retail for $399.99 each later this Q2.
