Today Wednesday 30th of January was the official launch of BlackBerry 10 operating system + the unveiling of the first two BlackBerry 10 smartphones. No more waiting for BlackBerry fans.
Now lets talk Hardware, one is called BB Z10 and the other BB Q10, The Z10 has a 4.2 inch 1280 x 768 screen same resolution as the Nokia Lumia 920, and it looks very similar to the renders that we’ve seen before. It’s got a 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (microSD storage up to a 32GB card), NFC, and LTE. The camera is 8MP and Front-facing is a 2MP. Now everything looks technology competitive and appealing to my opinion but nothing special comparing to other devices like iPhone 5 and S3.
The Q10 features a smaller screen with a familiar keyboard underneath, the keyboard that kept many people loyal to the BlackBerry franchise for sometime now, and both phones will have the new OS from Blackberry. Pricing and availability will vary by country and we might get it probably within a week or two in Kuwait.
BlackBerry decided to create the new OS from scratch and its entirely new. At this time developers will have to decide whether or not to support the platform based on how well it sells. At last if BlackBerry 10 had come out 2 years ago it would have been noteworthy, but now lets just hope it survives through this tough technology battle.
