BlackBerry has just launched two devices – BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 on the latest BB 10 OS. The Z10 is an all touch device, while the Q10 has a QWERTY portrait keyboard. As expected, the Z10 device has a 4.2-inch screen, 356 PPI and uses the “latest screen technology”. The smartphone has got textured surface for comfort, “just feels good holding it in your hand.”
This the best BlackBerry smartphone to date! The BlackBerry Z10 is has a specially designed screen for precise touch input, so typing on the BlackBerry keyboard can be faster and more accurate. The BlackBerry Z10 screen uses the latest technology to ensure images are sharp, clear and incredibly vivid.
Q10 is the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone with a physical keyboard, and have been made for the people that have to have the physical keyboard typing experience. The stunning touch screen display makes the device as the largest ever on a BlackBerry QWERTY device.
The battery is designed to get you through your day smooth and efficiently. The browser is fast, the media experience is rich, and it’s all because of the built-in power of the BlackBerry 10 OS. Additionally, meticulous detail has been put into the design. The BlackBerry Q10 features a unique glass-weave material that is meant to be not only thinner and lighter, but stronger than plastic.
Vivek Bhardwaj, head of software portfolio demonstrated the “BlackBerry Flow” feature for multitasking. He demoed a video playing on the display, while being able to check notifications at the same time by swiping to the right to peek at the BlackBerry Hub. You can tweet straight from the hub, act on notifications, etc. without leaving the hub. “It’s like a universal inbox on steroids.”
The interface is very gesture based, everything is activated with swipes. Contact pages, which are built into the Hub, can show up-to-date social network information and activity. All of that is accessible without having to leave the hub and go to separate apps.
The keyboard has a unique word prediction feature that lets you “flick” words from the keyboard to the screen. They call it “writing without typing.” You can use swipe gestures to access punctuation and other characters. The keyboard also has built-in Multilanguage support that’s accessible with a gesture.
