BlackBerry is showing off a new, modern set of software and hardware. But it hasn’t lost the most beloved element of its past: the company’s just announced the BlackBerry Q10, a new smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard that will be instantly familiar to anyone who’s ever seen a BlackBerry before. Make no mistake, the Q10 is a thoroughly modern smartphone: it runs RIM’s new BlackBerry 10 OS, and has a 3.1-inch, 720 x 720 display above that full keyboard. But unlike the other BlackBerry models we’ve been hearing about, which prizes a large screen and a touch interface, the Q10 is all about the keyboard.
The battery is designed to get you through your day smooth and efficiently. The browser is fast, the media experience is rich, and it’s all because of the built-in power of the BlackBerry 10 OS. Additionally, meticulous detail has been put into the design. The BlackBerry Q10 features a unique glass-weave material that is meant to be not only thinner and lighter, but stronger than plastic.
The phone will be available in April around the world
