Yesterday’s BlackBerry conference wasn’t just to show off the new Z10 handset or a change in the name or the 70k apps it’s launching with, there was another handset there too. The BlackBerry Q10 is what traditional BlackBerry users will love since it’s their new BB10 smartphone with full QWERTY keyboard.
The form factor looks similar to the current Bold 9900, although it doesn’t seem to have that high-end feel. Still, with a 3.1-inch touchscreen and a resolution of 720 x 720, the Q10 looks very promising with a 350 ppi. It has the same dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 2GB RAM, the Q10 promises to be just as great an experience as the Z10, only it has the added benefit of a physical keyboard.
Sadly there’s going to be a slight delay for the Q10, with the handset expected to hit our region somewhere around April. Still, the Z10 is out on February 10th in the UAE retailing for AED 2,599 without contract.
