Always On Torture Test Giveaway: BlackBerry Q10

The BBQ10 couldn't handle a day of R&R. Maybe you can show it the good life.

Now playing: Watch this: Torture-testing the BlackBerry Q10 at the spa

When we walked through the doors of SenSpa in the Presidio a couple months ago, the BBQ10 was far from relaxed. Despite the soothing aromas and comfy slippers, destruction was in the air. Unfortunately, it didn't take long for us to discover that massage oil and bubble baths do not mix well with technology.
