Blackberry Aurora, comes a new Android smartphone without a keyboard

Blackberry Aurora comes from the partnership with Indonesian BB Merah Putin to expand the market of the Canadian company also in Southeast Asia

The BlackBerry Aurora is a smartphone with mid-range technical specifications that, until yesterday was known by the codename BBC110-1. The announcement comes from Indonesian BB Merah Putin, a company to which BlackBerry granted the use of its trademark in September last year.

John Chen - CEO of BlackBerry - reported that this model is "made for Indonesia", although it is not excluded that it could also be available in other emerging markets in addition to that of the Southeast Asian country. Hardly, however, we'll see it in "premium" markets like Italy. It is, as we shall see shortly, a low-medium range device, characterized by technical specifications not of the highest level. A technical card, however, more than enough to use the BlackBerry Aurora in the main daily activities: from reading email to updating social networks.
