BlackBerry CEO Heins talks BlackBerry Q10
In an interview with Bloomberg Television, it seems that Heins is now coming around to the idea that traditional BlackBerry users would rather type on a keyboard as long as they have the ability to navigate on the rest of the phone using a touchscreen. Heins, noting that the BlackBerry Q10 is $50 more on contract than the Apple iPhone 5, called the Q10 a "high quality" phone for hyper-connected multitaskers who need to get the job done.
On Sunday night, we told you that an exclusive deal with U.K. retailer Selfridges made the phone the fastest selling consumer electronic device ever sold at the store during the weekend's launch. During the interview, the CEO mentions that tens of millions of BlackBerry Q10 units are expected to be sold, although it wasn't clear what timeframe he was talking about. It now sounds as though Heins sees the error of his ways and realizes that it could be the more old fashioned of the two current BlackBerry 10 models that makes waves. And considering T-Mobile's last minute decision to jump into the BlackBerry Q10 game last week, it seems that others have started thinking the same way.

That's right this phone wa made to be a tool not a toy like the iphone and android devices. Although the Z10 works as a better tool and toy than the iphone and androids so he has a win, win
