Description

With its hardware QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Q10 follows in the footsteps of many legacy smartphones made by RIM. The four rows of hardware keys are situated underneath a high-resolution, 720 by 720 pixel touchscreen measuring 3.1 inches in diagonal. The back of the BlackBerry Q10 is made out of a fancy, glass-like material that is claimed to be stronger, thinner, and lighter than the plastic used in many handsets today. The company's re-imagined BlackBerry 10 operating system runs on the device.
