BlackBerry may be known for its smartphones with physical keyboards but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t dabble in all-touch devices every now and then. The latest such device from BalckBerry is the BlackBerry Leap, which just arrived at the FCC in order to receive approval for a North American launch. Little is revealed aside from the fact that it’ll be all-touch.
Although BlackBerry slipped up a bit early and listed the device formerly known as the Z20, now the BlackBerry Leap, inside FCC documents for the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry Leap has arrived at the FCC seeking approval. As the device is already official, the FCC documents don’t reveal much of anything that isn’t already known about the latest all-touch device except, perhaps, a possible approximate launch time frame for North America. The short term confidentiality agreement expires on May 4th, 2015 and while that is far from a proven method of determining release of a device, it’s shortly after the April launch BlackBerry confirmed for Europe.
