5-inch BlackBerry Z10 like device coming later this year, says analyst

Don’t count BlackBerry out of the ‘phablet’ race. According to Peter Misek, analyst from Jefferies, believes that BlackBerry will enter the larger display sizes later this year and release a 5-inch BlackBerry 10 device. In a report to his clients he indicated that the design will be similar to the Z10, just bigger.

In addition, re-confirmed the words from BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins that there will be more BB10 devices coming this year: a mid-range device with a QWERTY keyboard (priced around $400), a mid-range touch, plus the 5-incher. Heins recently stated that “There’s one new product I’m really excited about, but I can’t really share it… It takes BlackBerry 10 to another level in terms of the user experience.”

BlackBerry already has the Z10 in market, plus we Canadians will see the QWERTY/Touch BlackBerry Q10 hit stores on April 30th.
