Though the BlackBerry Z10 was the first handset to run the company's new BlackBerry 10 OS, the phone we've been waiting for is the Q10. It's been five long months but BlackBerry is finally ready to launch the first BB10 phone with a hardware QWERTY keyboard. We just unboxed ours, a model from Telus, and took a quick peek at the device itself. The BlackBerry Q10 boasts a 3.1-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.5 GHZ dual-core Cortex-A9, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and (of course) that all important hardware keyboard.
BlackBerry announced today that the Q10 will launch in the United States in June. It's already available in Canada. Check out the video of the unboxing below!
I wouldn't call the iOS clunky, just in comparison to be BB10. It's the same issue BB had in the past with BBOS 5,6, 7 was better (they felt clunky and looked clunky compared ot android and iOS) but BB10 has now surpassed iOS and android in feel and flow. Well literally BB10 is called flow. I still think iOS would be easier for someones grandmother to use, since, it's just push button based where as BB10 is gestures based (think minority report Tom Cruise for people who don't get the difference between gestures and push button). iOS and Android definitely feel dated and antiquated when up against BB10. Once BB10 app store grows, for myself, I wouldn't have any compelling reason to go back to an iPhone. BB10 is that good.
Yeah, well, try to tell that to my COO. LOL. In Android at least there are 3-4 ways to achieve the same goal (like getting into some settings, for instance), depending on what/how is more convenient for you, whereas in iOS you have to quit whatever you're doing to achieve that (in several clicks). No true multitasking, either. I tend to agree with him.
