Two in One: BlackBerry Brings Back Keyboard along with Touchscreen in its new Q10 Phone

Blackberry has recently unveiled Z10 with a full blown screen to compete with the other smartphones available in the market with touchscreen.

But perhaps people at RIM were not too happy to depart from their famous phones with QWERTY keyboard. So they have decided to bring back the love of the past and is introducing a two in phone: Touchscreen as well as QWERTY keyboard.

Julian Slim, Head of Home and Lifestyle at Selfridges said: 'Following the very successful Z10 launch we are thrilled to be hosting the European Exclusive of the highly anticipated BlackBerry Q10.

BlackBerry chief executive Thorsten Heins believes the handsets will beat the iPhone, which makes up 38% of the installed base of smartphones in the US, against 5.9% for BlackBerry.

The Q10 is equipped with a Dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus with 16GB flash, expandable via microSD and 8.0MP rear camera, 2MP front camera. Laced with BlackBerry 10.1 OS, the Q10 has a 720×720 3.1" (330 ppi) Super AMOLED touchscreen.

The new Q10 will be available next week in the UK for £579 - and in the US next month.
