Phone maker BlackBerry, on Thursday, unveiled their first ‘touch or type’ device, the BlackBerry Q10. With this device, BlackBerry hopes to entice touchphone connoisseurs while keeping their Qwerty loyalists intact. The phone can be owned at Rs 44,990/-. The Q10 is powered by a 1.5 GHz Dual-Core processor and PowerVR SGX544 GPU. It runs on BlackBerry 10.1 and comes packed with 2 GB of RAM. It offers 16 GB of internal memory though a microSD card will let you expand up to 64 GB.

This dual camera device sports a 3.1-inch capacitive AMOLED multi-touch screen. The Primary camera has a resolution of 8-Megapixel while the secondary is a 2-Megapixel camera. Connectivity options include 4G, WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n), Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, microUSB v2.0, NFC among others.  The Q10 fueled by a 2,100 mAh Li-Ion battery supports video recording at 1080p.

Comparisons have already begun between BB’s new device and Z10 that was released a few months ago. The specifications may be more or less similar but the touch plus qwerty phone could better its predecessors performance, experts reckon.
