BlackBerry Q10

The BlackBerry Q10 is the soon to be released phone from BlackBerry and at the time of writing (April 2013) it was available to be preordered from Vodafone. It's not long since the Z10 was introduced and now there is another new flagship phone from Blackberry.

The main difference between the Q10 and the Z10 is that the Q10 has a QWERTY keyboard that BlackBerry users will be familiar with. Perhaps the Q stands for QWERTY? Nevertheless, the touchscreen display on this phone is the largest that has ever appeared on a BlackBerry QWERTY phone.

BlackBerry OS10

The phone runs the latest version of BlackBerry's operating system - OS10.


This phone is 4G ready.

The Processor

Equipped with a 1.5GHz processor and 2GB of ram, this phone is fast, smooth and multitasking is a breeze. You can input either via the touchscreen or the keyboard.
