    Just heard news today that the Blackberry 9720 is the 2nd most popular device purchased in South Africa. Its amazing to see that even a phone thats very old still has its niche market. Its also nice to see that the Blackberry Z3 is not far behind.
    Maybe there is still a market for a Blackberry 7 Device with updated specs? probably not :P

    I wonder if they offer very cheap BIS plans that help make the legacy devices popular

    Isn't the 9720 newer than the Z10/Q10? Lol

    Also:

    "The phones above are ranked alphabetically, and not from most to least popular."

    The BIS package in Africa currently sits at $5.99 per month for unlimited data**.

    **unlimited is based on a fair usage policy of 1GB

    I think the fact that this is the latest (correct ) BB 7 device in the country, and popular because of the fixed data cost (bis).
