The new BlackBerry Q10 by RIM is a smartphone with a physical keypad and is powered by the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, same as the one featured in the BlackBerry Z10 touch screen smart phone. It is equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.
Some BlackBerry loyalists may fancy the Q10 more than the Z10 as it retains the iconic physical BlackBerry keyboard and resembles the BlackBerry Bold line of smartphones. With a 3.1 inch screen size, the Q10 features an AMOLED touch screen display.
The keys on the keypad are straight instead of the classic curved keys found in earlier BlackBerry phones. However, it does sport similar sculpted edges and frets and will feel familiar to old BlackBerry users. With an all-glass back plate reinforced by a resin weave for extra durability, the Q10 is claimed to have a premium design touch in comparison to existing BB mobiles.
The speed of the Q10’s camera is impressive and it focuses and captures images pretty fast. What may be a turn-off for some users is the lack of more shooting modes, HDR and ISO settings.
Comparing with Z10, its touch screen sibling, the Q10 has a bigger 2,100mAh battery which is surely going to offer longer charge and thus will be an attractive option for power users. It would certainly help while you’re having those long chats with your friends on the Nimbuzz application.
The BlackBerry Q10 is expected to hit the US market in April 2013. Stay tuned for more.
