The results of a pair of polls taken during last week's BlackBerry Live conference in Orlando showed that not only are former BlackBerry users tempted to return to the platform by the Q10, those already sporting a 'Berry say that the QWERTY equipped model is enough to keep them loyal to the BlackBerry platform.
Each of the four major U.S.mobile carriers will be offering the BlackBerry Q10 with T-Mobile making a last minute 180 degree change and deciding to offer the phone. BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins has said that the decision to go with the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 first was done in an attempt to counter the strength of touchscreen models like the Apple iPhone and Android devices at businesses that allow employees to use their own personal smartphone at work.
Heins apparently thought that by rushing out the Z10, BlackBerry could better compete in the enterprise market. But what the executive has only now realized is that BYOD workers still want a phone with a dependable QWERTY to use for important business messages. The physical QWERTY is also a great feature that differentiates BlackBerry from flagship models like the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
