Blackberry Finally Launches The Blackberry Q10 In India
Blackberry has finally launched the Blackberry Q10 in India, at an initial price of Rs. 44,990/-.
The Blackberry Q10 smartphone, which comes with the physical keyboard that many BlackBerry fans prize, is selling well in both Canada and Britain, the 2 main countries where it was launched first.
The BlackBerry Q10 is the successor to their premium QWERTY phone which is Bold, and features a square 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen with 720 x 720 resolution. The usual shortcut buttons are now part of the user interface with the space below the screen dedicated solely to BlackBerry’s tried and tested QWERTY keyboard. BlackBerry also noted that the Q10 has a glass weave body for added strength and weight reduction.
The Blackberry Q10 sports a 1.5GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, which is expandable with a microSD slot. The 3,1-inch touchscreen has 330ppi, 720 x 720 display.
Blackberry Q10 will come running on BlackBerry 10, which will also come with applications and games such as Foursquare, Skype, Twitter, Facebok, Angry Birds Star Wars, Where’s My Water, Cisco WebEx and many more.
The Blackberry Q10 was listed on online retail sites for pre order, Blackberry claims they have already received over 1000 pre orders.
BlackBerry hopes its new line of smartphones, led by the touchscreen Z10 device it introduced earlier this year, will help claw back market share lost to the likes of Apple Inc’s iPhone and Samsung Electronics Co.’s wildly popular line of Galaxy devices, which are powered by Google Inc.’s Android operating system.
