BlackBerry Q10


Today is THE day that the first customers will start to get their hands on the new BlackBerry Q10 in the UK and next week, in Canada, on May 1. Throughout the week we’ve let you know where and when it will be available first, what went into the design and what our favorite features are. Now it’s time to hear from the tech media.

Like me, they’ve had their hands on the beautiful BlackBerry Q10 with full QWERTY keyboard. Turns out I’m not the only one who was impressed by the device and how well it performs as a daily driver. Physical keyboard lovers, meet your new match! Here’s what the press had to say:

  • orville laird

    I have always liked my blackberry phone.Still do.I had hoped to be able to buy the new phone.Unfortunately I can’t at this time.Hope I can afford one soon.

  • kate

    This is the perfect effficiency tool. I have mastered typing on a physical keyboard to the point I don’t have to look anymore. I could never do that on a virtual keyboard. The endless bells and whistles in the Q10 is delightful. I’m not a gamer so screen size isn’t crucial to me, as long as it’s touch. This phone has the best of everything I need in an organization device. I❤ BB

  • ajay gupta

    Its a best QWERTY phone in the market. Superfast and elegant. Its an engineering marvel…after a long time such a good habdset is available in market. Good work done blackberry boys.

  • paullatin

    Yes I own a BlackBerry Q10. Keyboard is awesome, battery life if more than perfect and theBB10 is the first step to a beautiful and well made product. But there are problems. No auto brightness on/off toggle, missing a lot and I mean by massive proportions key Apps used on iOS and android, poor flexibility to adjust or customise font size in many native apps.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on the Q10. From all I’ve seen and read it should be awesome and a great replacement for my 9800. I will miss the tracking ball. That said I’m really looking forward to the Q10 s great touch screen and the best qwerty keyboard in the business. I will definitely be fitting a 64GB micro SD card.
