Welcome to the new Q10
Unlike the new Z10, which has just a touch screen, the new Q10 sports the keyboard that made BlackBerry famous. The BlackBerry 10 OS is new, of course, but the Q10's hardware isn't very different from BlackBerry's previous phones. Here you can see the icon-based main menu.
The physical QWERTY keyboard has four rows of buttons. Numbers share space with letters and symbols.
On the "Active Frame" page, you'll see up to eight thumbnails of the apps you're currently using. Tap the thumbnail to open the app or click the "X" in the lower-right corner to close the app.
On the Q10's right side is a thin silver volume rocker.
Its best side
The Q10 has a trim profile. The charger port is on the left spine.
The Q10's back cover has a textured surface. The camera lens and flash are in the top-left corner.
Up top are the power control and the headset jack.
And on the Q10's bottom end are the microphone and speaker for hands-free calls and media.
