Summary: The BlackBerry is an affordable phone that offers the advantage of a touchscreen OS plus a full physical QWERTY keyboard. That makes it a an attractive option compared to entry-level QWERTY phones like the Nokia Asha 302 or the BlackBerry Curve 9320 .
Summary: The spec sheet of the 9720 is best suited for the target market. At its core it is pretty much a Curve model that was given a bigger shell to live in. It isn't being targeted for the masses and that's what needs to be realized. There is a place for it and for that place, it will do well.
Pros: Bigger / wider keyboard, Rubber texture for added grip
Cons: Low RAM, Low processing power (for power users)
Summary: The BlackBerry 9720 is an unfortunate reminder of just how far we’ve come in the last few years. There’s little to no reason to aspire to this, an operating system even BlackBerry has moved on from, when you could get more apps and a bigger screen with Android.
Conclusion: If we’re to be frank and fair, simply look at the competition out there. The 9720 doesn’t stand a chance. The HTC First, Sony Xperia L or HTC Windows Phone 8S are all far better options for your cash. And if BBM is really your thing, then just download the app and let the 9720 rot.
Excerpt: What’s this, BlackBerry has release the new 9720 into the wild, which sports BBOS 7.1 and a design we became accustomed to until everything changed at the end of 2012, but why is it here now? Let’s take a look. Haven’t we been here before?

Pros: Good touch screen display, Decent build, Good keyboard
