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. What you see below is known only as the R-Series for now but is supposedly an upcoming BB10 device. Like the Q10, the phone above has a full QWERTY keypad and a square touchscreen. It is, however, said to be a low-end...

I own Blackberry Z10 for about 2 weeks and battery life is great. Not the best but great. Whole day usage gives me almost always 50% remaining battery at the end of the day.

More than enough for me.

And Blackberry OS 10 is best mobile OS on the market today. I also own HTC One X+ and iPhone 4S too and I know what I am talking about.

Do the market a favour Blackberry and give up. We don't need your under-specced, historically designed mini keyboard wearing useless devices.

Just stop it now.

HTC Status/ChaCha is the best phone in terms of keyboard. Very comfortable to type

Whilst Blackberry has indicated that it is committed to launching more devices for different market segments it is unlikely that this one will be among them. The design language is too different from the rest of the BB10 range.

Looks good but the new software will definitely lose customers due to no BIS which is the main reason Blackberry's were successful however many have switched android and IOS and Blackberry will go further down with the new software as it is just like any other phone on the market with not much for the consumer

It looks pretty damn good for a low end device.
