RIM offers a cheaper BlackBerry

ORLANDO — Research In Motion unveiled a lower-cost BlackBerry aimed at consumers in emerging markets on Tuesday, stepping up its efforts to regain market share lost to Apple’s iPhone and Android ­devices powered by Google’s software.

The lower-cost gadget, called the Q5, is the company’s third smartphone to run the new BlackBerry 10 system. It will have a physical keyboard, something that sets RIM’s devices apart from Apple’s iPhone and most Android phones.
