BlackBerry Q10 Panda

When the BlackBerry Z10 was released we quickly discovered the tastiness of the BlackBerry Z10 Oreo. Putting a black battery door on the white Z10 made it look not only like a tasty cookie (or maybe ice cream sandwich??), but also gave the slightly slippery white Z10 more grip thanks to the soft touch feel of the black battery door.

Now that I have both a white and black BlackBerry Q10 in my hands, we had to mix things up and see how the black and white treatment faired. The result is in the photos. The Oreo name doesn't quite fit this time around - we're thinking panda maybe works.

Like the Z10, the black battery door on the Q10 has a grippier feel than the white battery door. When it comes to white, smartphone manufacturers are forced to go with harder plastics so blue jean die doesn't stain it blue. Putting the black battery door on the white Q10 definitely makes it a little grippier, though I've been finding my all-white Q10 easy to hold.
