The BlackBerry Q10 must be imminent – when you look at the BlackBerry Docs website, there is now a new Manual titled:
Notice that the Q10 will be the first device to have the 10.1 operating system. I suspect that the 10.1 update for the Z10 will follow soon too as the same website shows the manual for the Z10 with 10.1 software on it.
When I look at the Q10 compared to the Z10, besides the obvious keyboard, the trwo devices are similar which makes sense as the Q10 also has a touchscreen.
From the developers notes there are indeed differences between the Z10 and the Q10 and I cant wait to check out these out and explore all the new features. Will be great to be reunited with the old BlackBerry keyboard and those shortcuts. I am especially looking forward to the new Type N Go feature that I saw in Amsterdam at BlackBerry JAM !
Several cell phone retailers are now advertising the BlackBerry Q10 at around R7999.00 and there is even evidence of a white-coloured Q10.
Not long to go now…
