BlackBerry Q10

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.

Pros

  • Hardware QWERTY keyboard

Cons

  • Thick body (0.41 inches)
