Targeted at the youth, the 9720 is available in black and white. 

The first thought that came to our minds after we picked up the BlackBerry 9720 was "It's so light". 

While it is built well, long-term users might feel the 9720 to be plasticky.

The 9720 comes in the classic BlackBerry shape and the Qwerty keyboard is easier to use than the BlackBerry Q5, which runs the newer operating system (OS), BlackBerry 10.

The 9720 runs OS 7.1 and the touch interface seems like an add-on when one compares it to OS 10.

Targeted at the youth, the 9720 is available in black and white.

At Rs 15,999 the 9720 is a value-for-money device. But the question is whether the youth would opt for an ecosystem that is stable but can't compete with the number of apps provided by its rivals.
