BlackBerry’s newest smartphone is now available for Malaysians to pre-order on 11street. The BlackBerry Leap is aimed at young executives who are just about to begin building their careers, and is priced at a point that won’t break their wallets.
Featuring a 5-inch touch display, the BlackBerry Leap follows the more conventional smartphone form factor. Running on BlackBerry 10.3.1, it also features a 2800mAh battery that BlackBerry claims to provide 25 hours of power even on heavy use.
The pre-order begins today and lasts until 19 May 2015; which is the day that the smartphones start shipping. BlackBerry fans can secure their Leap for only RM1089, which includes GST. In addition to this, 11street is throwing in a BlackBerry premium cap and leather phone pouch for the first 100 pre-orders. Confirmed pre-orders will also receive an 11street shopping coupon with RM150.
This pre-order deal is exclusive to 11street, and other vendors will only begin selling the BlackBerry Leap after 20 May. There is no word from local telcos yet about their BlackBerry Leap plans, but it can be expected that Celcom should be announcing something reasonably soon as they are one of the partners behind 11street.
