It was a quite long wait, but it looks like the BlackBerry Q10 will be available in the US in the not so distant future. Following in the footsteps of the Z10, the Blackberry Q10 is the second device to run new BlackBerry 10 platform. The handset has just passed through the FCC, which means that was certified and is almost ready for launch. The Q10 is expected to be released on April 30 in Canada and should arrive in the U.S. about two weeks later. The time frame for the Q10 debut is still unofficial, however, you can expect some kind of formal announcement in the days to come.
Blackberry Q10 QWERTY Keyboard smartphone
The BlackBerry Q10 is the first BB10 smartphone to offer a full QWERTY keyboard. While this feature will definitely be appreciated by many users, it required certain sacrifice in the screen size. The Super AMOLED display is significantly smaller than in other all touch smartphones and measures only 3.1 inches. However, BlackBerry used touch sensitive technology making the Q10 a hybrid touch / physical QWERTY model. The display also delivers decent resolution of 720 x 720 pixels at 330 ppi.
The BlackBerry Q10 is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor paired with 2 GB of RAM and offers 16 GB of internal memory expandable up to 64 GB via microSD slot. The handset is equipped with 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing snapper. Other key features include 4G LTE support, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity.
