Announced to be released a few weeks after the Z10, the first mobile to run on a BlackBerry 10 operating system and is also the second handset to provide OS 10. However, the phone being QWERTY will not be as high as Z10 in its appeal and looks but still much can be expected from it. The lot who still feels uneasy with touch screens but are technology freaks can go for this device without a second doubt. BlackBerry phones are known to provide best QWERTY keypads in the market and the same can be expected for this yet to be launched BB handset Q10.
Solid Built Quality
qwerty keypad & touch screen combination
Blackberry 10 OS still needs improvements
Blackberry Q10 Features:
Though BB has not declared any specifications but it can be assumed that the new BB qwerty driven handset will have a screen size bigger than the previous versions of OS 9 league. We further assume it to have a similar crisp display as its counterpart touch screen phone Z10. Like BlackBerry Z10 it is expected to have an amazing pixel quality as well. It should feature an 8 megapixel back- side camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera with similar good capturing quality. The processor running in Q10 should also be similar to Z10, which is 1.5GHz dual-core processor
BlackBerry as usual has not taken many risks with the design specifications of the BlackBerry Q10. As mentioned earlier it is a keyboard-equipped BlackBerry to appeal to long term users who are ardent fans of the QWERTY factor. The rear side has a ‘woven glass’ pattern look, similar to that of carbon fibre. Rest its usual black and silver with no extra artwork still giving business phone looks. So the looks are exactly like what generally BlackBerry users wish for stylish yet classy.
Most importantly the keyboard like all other BlackBerry phones feels superb with each key vigilantly sculpted for ability. The keys are probably little larger than previous BB versions and the action is also smoother and lighter that allows to type at a decent speed.
BB 10 OS
The key feature of this phone is definitely the OS it uses. The commendable work done on the OS by BB can be noticed all over while using the device. Perhaps it will be a very -very useful OS from BB this time.

Blackberry Q10 Intro Video:
The phone does not have a “to die for “kind of look but the OS it uses is definitely the kind that would steal your heart. BB has not revealed Q10 specifications clearly as of yet and as it is not released much can’t be said about its individual performance and features. Though its specifications are assumed to be like Z10 as it uses the same OS but exact apps and features can only be talked about when it releases. If you are a QWERTY fan then only trusting the commendable OS, it’s recommended to be bought.
