According to a last-week disclosure - via a twitter post - by famous tipster Roland Quandt, Canadian tech firm Blackberry will likely launch a new handset in the US. The yet-to-be-announced handset - called the 'BlackBerry Mercury' - will be available in the US from Verizon.

In revealing that BlackBerry's new Mercury handset - which, going by reports so far, will probably be the last device to be launched by the company - will be available in the US, Quandt has not divulged any expected price or launch time-frame of the handset in his Twitter post.

Nonetheless, Quandt has revealed that the Mercury handset has been designed by BlackBerry, and has been built by Alcatel brand's parent firm TCL.

So far as the specifications of the BlackBerry Mercury handset is concerned, the expected key features of the device include a nearly 4.5-inch curved display, a Snapdragon 821 processor, and a physical QWERTY keyboard.

Moreover, it is also rumored that the BlackBerry Mercury handset will come with a battery which will be powerful enough to last two full days of handset usage.
