Body: 

The BlackBerry Q10 is the second BlackBerry 10 smartphone released. The Q10 has a more traditional BlackBerry form factor with a physical keyboard, but doesn’t have the traditional navigation keys or optical trackpad. Despite the physical keyboard, it still leverages the SwiftKey-powered prediction in a more traditional suggestion bar at the bottom of the display. The BlackBerry Q10 also makes use of the traditional BlackBerry keyboard shortcuts. The BlackBerry Q10 launched in May 2013. 

Arguably, the most significant feature of the BlackBerry Z10 is the operating system. Though the primary focus on communication hasn’t changed in the software experience, the user interface has moved from one that relies on physical buttons to gestures. The most important one is the quarter-turn swipe from the bottom frame to the right frame to access the Hub. This is where notifications from all sources are unified in one place where users can respond and otherwise interact with them. Swiping up from the bottom returns users to the Active Frame screen, where minimized version of all running applications are visible, while menus can be opened by swiping from the top pane or long-pressing on individual items for context-sensitive actions.

The virtual keyboard for BlackBerry 10 uses a prediction engine powered by SwiftKey which makes suggestions based on personalized usage on a per-app basis. Suggested words appear above the next letter on the keyboard, and are picked by swiping up from that key. The camera software includes a new TimeShift function which shoots a fast burst of photos, and allows users to selectively edit individual faces to different shots taken in that burst to effectively create a moment that never really existed.
