Remember the good old days of typing texts on a QWERTY keyboard and exchanging BBM pins instead of Twitter names? We miss that shit. The times of the Crackberry have come and gone, but are we on the brink of a comeback? Blackberry would like to think so.
Check the BB revival devices after the pause.
The Z10 is designed to compete with the touch screen phones already on the market. It sports a 4.2-inch touchscreen and a battery that promises up to 10 hours of talk time on 3G and 13 days standby time. It will be 4G-LTE capable, 0.35 inches thick and weigh 4.84 ounces. The thing we hated the most about our old Storms, Tours and Curves was the shitty browser. Thats improved as are the cameras. It features 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front facing cameras.
The smaller Q10 resembles the Blackberry we rocked with a few years back. It has a lot of the same specs of the Z10, but features the physical keyboard that has almost become something for the history books. Blackberry brags it’s the widest keyboard they’ve ever manufactured. The screen on the Q10 is 3.1 inches and receptive to touch just in case you have to be weaned off an iPhone.
The Z10 will be available for purchase in the U.S. in mid-March while the Q10 gets delayed until April.
