If they are planning to really push this as a social phone and a business phone, it will still fail as the specs would suggest at least a €400 price tag without contract.
If it were at something like, say a €200-€250 pricepoint, it would be a gamechanger in the market.
I was bit interested, but then, I saw the display type. uggh, super AMOLED. Burn in burn in burn in burn in. meh, next phone please.

gonna be the best fone , better than iphone or android phones, thumbs up to blackberry.
Nice, cool bb on the go, great alternative to the bold 9900, but hope the bugs that flocks around the 9900 wont repeat itself here. cute mobile but the back design could have been better..thanks rim, cant wait for it to be on sale.

It serves its purpose well for what it is intended for. Rim did not make a frogleap with this line up, as a matter of fact they just came back in the game. they need to do way lot more. I am betting on their rest of 4 devices they are bringing in this year.
Lets be honest . . its not that bad :) respec and peace.

AnonD-69184, 30 Jan 2013Outdated hardware...Android is a good OS but being an open source OS it needs more horsepower to run as it is not optimised for the Hardware. QNX is totally optimised OS for the Hardware hence it does not need loads and loads of Cores and piles of memory. It performs similar way witha dual core what a Quad core can perform on Andriod plateform. dont mean to bash anything, its just two differnt plateforms. respect
meeky, 30 Jan 2013will the battery last for some hours9900 has 1250mAh battery and Q10 has 1800mAh battery, Plus QNX is way more power efficiant then Java based OS's. Hope it explains.
Design could have been a bit better, but overall promising phone. I would rather go for it. Cool UI, Good camera and features, awesome memory, Physical KeyBoard, good processor,Good and improved Battery, LTE, 70,000 Apps at Launch, Ability to use Android Apps, what else i need? Thanks BlackBerry for a Phone that makes sense.
