BlackBerry Q10 demo videos released
BlackBerry has just released some videos designed to teach users of the BlackBerry Q10 how to use the QWERTY equipped device. Many fans have been waiting for the release of this model because of the physical QWERTY on the phone, a feature that BlackBerry has been known for going back to its roots as a two-way business communication device.

The 2008 launch of the BlackBerry Bold 9000 took the mystique of the BlackBerry QWERTY up another notch with a keyboard that some hard core users say, has never been topped. Others say that the more recent BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 beat out the QWERTY on the original Bold. Regardless of which one you think is best, BlackBerry has been looking to take the physical QWERTY on the Q10 to another level.

The 2GB of RAM on the BlackBerry Q10 is a multitasker's best friend. While the BlackBerry Z10 also includes 2GB of RAM, the QWERTY equipped device features a larger 2100mAh battery than the 1800mAh cell on the "all-touch" Z10. This could means that despite BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Hein's insistence that the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 was released first to staunch the firm's bleeding of market share in the BYOD market, the Q10 is designed to be more of a business tool than the first BB10 handset.

We've selected a couple of the new BlackBerry Q10 from BlackBerry's YouTube channel for you to take a look at. Not only will it show Q10 users how to run some of the features on the phone, those with a different device might find themselves longing for the handset after viewing the videos.

i wonder how the support for apps would work. does every z10 apps work with the q10 or would developers have to make 2 versions. Also, how many apps does blackberry app world have by now?

They need to adjust them because of the different resolution(like android apps from 720p to 1080p).

The Z10 has a good amount of apps so far. They are getting Skype within the week and have some real nice games as well. Not too sure about the Q10, Checkout for more info

Q10 is more business and Z10 more for play... I disagree the Z10 is a great device. Only difference is Q10 will have the keyboard and larger baterry but Z10 already has best keyboard on touch screen device on the market. Many times with longer words i don't have to type it all out cuz the phone already figures out what I want to say plus it corrects any errors seamleslly. Truly a dream to have this keyboard. i tried all other touch keyboards and none can even come close to this one. Baterry life last me a full day or more

Totally agree. I'm a blackberry power user and will definitely pick up both. The Z10 is a great device and so the q10
