Here it is CrackBerry Nation, a first look at the BlackBerry Q10. Q10. Q10. Q10. Q for QWERTY I think. Or Quantum. Either way, it's the BlackBerry Q10 and it's the first BlackBerry 10 phone to feature a physical keyboard. From a hardware standpoint, it's the same specs as the BlackBerry Z10, with the exception that the display is 3.2" at 720x720 pixels and instead of a touchscreen keyboard, it's physical.
Compared to the Bold 9900, which features a smiling keyboard, the Q10's keyboard puts the buttons in a straight row. With no trackpad or menu / back buttons to make room for, there's no need to work with that design. With this design the keys are a little bit bigger, and the straigh row makes for excellent muscle memory. I've played a little bit around on the keyboard, and it definitely FEELS GOOD. It's a little different than the 9900, but the response rate and pressure of the keys is even more dialed in than the 9900. We'll talk a lot more about this later, but in the meantime check out some Q10 sexiness in the video above!
