BlackBerry Bold 9720 shows off new OS additions, caught on video


When the BlackBerry Bold 9720 started to appear many BlackBerry 10 owners couldn’t understand the idea of running a BlackBerry 7.1 device again but the fact is, there’s still several markets where that device will do well. With that under consideration, we’ve already seen plenty of images of the 9720 in action but some new videos from BerryInsider have now popped up on YouTube showing off the device as well.

In the videos, you can see BlackBerry isn’t simply pushing out yet another BlackBerry 7.1 device, as they did make several small refinements to the OS. The lock screen resembles that of a BlackBerry 10 device, you get the camera quick launcher from BlackBerry 10, although it doesn’t seem all that ‘quick’ and you get a new sharing menu as well.

Is that enough to make me want another BlackBerry 7.1 device? Not at all, I’m happy with my Q10 but,  ready to move onto the A-Series if BlackBerry UK feel the need to send me one. For those who want another BlackBerry 7.1 smartphone, the BlackBerry 9720 is it.
