Reviewing the Blackberry Q10

Blackberry may not be the most popular mobile handset maker in the world anymore, but it's not going down without a fight. The Q10 is a top of the line Blackberry and brings back a true blackberry signature – the QWERTY.

Blackberry may not be the most popular mobile handset maker in the world anymore, but it's not going down without a fight. The company has released some new handsets that incorporate several new features and a new operation system. The Q10 is a top of the line Blackberry and brings back a true blackberry signature – the QWERTY.

The most noticeable feature of the Q10 is that it has a physical QWERTY keyboard. Most will be able to reach across the 3.1-inch screen while holding the Q10, all with one hand. While typing, it doesn't take much stretch to tap and swipe the lower half of the display to activate gestures. This kind of thoughtful design is what BlackBerry used to be known for; it's something usually only seen in products made by manufacturers with control over both hardware and software. Of course, it wouldn't be a blackberry in the true sense of the word if I didn't have those smooth curved edges.

Operating System:
Blackberry has done a lot of work on the operating system for the new generation of handsets. It's all about the gestures and reminds us of Windows 8 with all the swiping from the edges you have to do. The gestures and swipes are easy to learn and remember, so the learning curve isn't that steep.

Blackberry Hub:
This is the heart of the new BB10. The hub is somewhat the central messaging system of the phone. Even though emails, messages and come in here, it doesn't feel cluttered.

The Q10 runs on a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The back pops off to reveal SIM and microSD slots; the latter takes cards up to 32GB. radios include dual-band a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and NFC. Wired connectivity includes a micro USB port for charging and connecting to a computer and a micro HDMI port for HD video output.

The phone runs BB 10 very smoothly and does truly feel like an upgrade to the older Blackberry's. On the Home screen and in the Hub the gestures gives quick access to often used settings and wireless radio toggles. In the Hub and on the Home screens it's all about swiping left and right to get where you want. The Active Frames screen is very useful. It's the heart of BB10′s multitasking features and makes it easy to get to the most recent apps.

Blackberry brings a certain amount of flair to the whole Business phone domain and for a first generation release the BB10 operating system feels very nice. The Q10 is made to deliver the best experience around messaging. For people who prioritize this above everything else, including good apps, the Q10 is a good buy.
