Finally! RIM, or should I say BlackBerry, has officially announced its first BlackBerry 10 smartphones – the full-touch Z10 and the keyboard-equipped Q10.
For those who want a full-touchscreen experience, the BlackBerry Z10 offers 4.2-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 which equates to 356 ppi. It sports a dual-core TI OMAP 4470 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing, 16GB of internal storage. microSD card support up to 32GB, Micro HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, WiFi a/b/g/n, LTE, and a removable 1,800 mAh battery.
Next is the BlackBerry Q10 which is equipped with a QWERTY physical keyboard and an “edge-to-edge” glass. It has a 3.1-inch super AMOLED touchscreen display with 720 x 720 resolution at 330ppi. Like the Z10, the Q10 also has an 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing, 16GB of internal storage with microSD card support, Bluetooth, WiFi and LTE.
Both handsets will run the new BlackBerry 10 OS which include new features such as BlackBerry Hub, an improved BlackBerry Keyboard, BlackBerry Messenger with Voice Chat and Screen Share, BlackBerry Balance and BlackBerry Remember.
Local pricing and availability are still unknown but Thorsten Heins mentioned that price points depend on carrier partners.
