Finally, BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 to hit the market

Category: Technology

The Canadian BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIMM) recently announced much anticipated two new products.  A full touchscreen BlackBerry Z10 will hit the market in March 2013 and the BlackBerry Q10, a device equipped with a keyboard that will come in at the end of January.  The RIMM will also officially change its name to BlackBerry.  BlackBerry has been losing its market share to Apple’s iPhone 5 and Google’s Android operating system based Samsung’s Galaxy S lately.  BlackBerry Z10 may be its hope to stay alive.

BlackBerry Z10 has many innovations still be familiar to those who are using BlackBerry.  It introduces what it calls a Hub, a scrolling drop down menu of incoming and outgoing communications, texting, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, phone calls all in one place.  It can show you your entire history of those or if you choose history of one person.  If you prefer, it will bring up an on screen key board that anticipate your next word cutting down on your typing.  The keyboard appears to be bit larger than the one in Apple iPhone 5.  It is priced at $199 with two-year contract on Verizon and BlackBerry will announce other carriers soon.
