Heins: BlackBerry Q10 is being tested by 40 carriers in 20 countries

BlackBerry Bold 9000 and the more recent BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. Since the company is known for its physical keyboard, many were surprised with the decision made by the Waterloo firm to launch its all-touch model first. In addition, CEO Heins has said in the past that the Z10 was more difficult to develop and that he wanted to get that out of the way first. In addition, the executive said that he wanted to compete in the BYOD market right away and felt that the BlackBerry Z10 would be a better choice to compete with the iOS and Android models being brought to work by employees.
Besides the physical QWERTY, the BlackBerry Q10 carries a square 720 x 720 3.1 inch Super AMOLED display. The combination of the physical QWERTY and a touchscreen works well on the Canadian manufacturer's previous flagship model, the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and we wouldn't be surprised to see the real demand for BlackBerry 10 kick in with the launch of this model, which is still some weeks away.

It's not about the looks, it's about function... For most business users, the tactile keyboard is what they're used to and want on a smartphone. I think BB is wrong for bringing out the touchscreen Z10 first instead of the Q10... If users wanted a touchscreen, they would get and have gotten the iPhone or Android device already.
