Low-end BlackBerry 10 device with QWERTY keypad leaks - read the full textAfter the Z10 and the Q10, a new BlackBerry 10 device has been uncovered.

Didn't some Blackberry executive said some time ago that they wouldn´t sully themselves with low-end devices? Rubbish as always! BB should sink like a stone!

qwerty keyboard is best feature of phone for some
not everyone like touchscreens so it is very good we still have companys like BB making phones with physical keyboards

I'm a part of the market and I definitely don't agree with your opinion. There is still a substantial market for smart phones with physical keyboard. And Apple will never sell a phone to the people who prefer the physical keyboard. BlackBerry appreciates the need for both. Now that's truly doing the market a favor.

You can't multi task, you can't type without looking as you can on a keyboard. Anyone who has used both a touchscreen phone and a blackberry know how to get the job done...And thats with the Blackberry. When you're rushing meeting to meeting, trying to catch a flight, eating, etc and you need to be accessible by your device theres no better way than with a keyboard. I can eat with 1 hand and type with the other...Something you could never do with the S3 or Iphone.

Its sad to see all the uneducated people out there with these uneducated comments. If you knew anything techanical about BB10 or the Iphone or the Samsung then you would know the Z10 is not a low end phone. BB has the most stable platform on the market and its a brand new platform. I work for a carrier and my daily phone is the Z10. My previous phone was the S3 and I've tested the Iphone 5, etc. Nothing compares in terms of the UI and reliability. I can legitmitley use my BB10 with 1 hand..Typing etc...I do well over 200 emails on a daily basis and Im getting things done faster. The Android and Iphones are for kids.

Sure, it takes up space, but not everybody likes a virtual keyboard. I wish my Ion had a physical keyboard(like the nokia E7), even if it made the phone a bit bulkier, i wouldnt mind.

This is another huge mistake made by BlackBerry!
Physical keyboard is outdated and it is a waste for display.

There are people like me who truly hate full touchscreen phones, yes to us even galaxy s4, iphone 5 etc are nothing else than rubbish phones. Blacberry is currently the only brand that makes good smart phones with hardware qwerty keyboard that are not limited for verizon, sprint, t-mobile etc...
Most of other brand smart phones with hardware qwerty keyboard dont support HSDPA 3g 900/2100. BB seems to understand that phones must also be compact sized, not too large sized like S3 eaxmple.

I understand the usefulness of a physical keyboard but for navigation use a trackpad with a normal screen or use a touchscreen. There is no need for both in a phone.
