Where the familiar comfort of a tactile keyboard meets the intuitive performance of touchscreen technology, you’ll find the BlackBerry Q10.  This multitasking smartphone has all the tools you need to accomplish amazing things at work and enjoy engaging fun in your down time – all in a lighter, thinner, stronger package than you’ve ever seen on a BlackBerry.

BlackBerry users have developed a distinct thumb-muscle-memory that makes the physical QWERTY keyboard a necessity for maintaining productivity. The BlackBerry Q10 keeps the comfortable keyboard intact for convenience, but also hosts a 3.1-inch touchscreen directly above it. A Super AMOLED display with 720x720 resolution provides a crisp, clear portal into your digital world. Vibrant bright colors and deep dark tones make it a breeze to navigate, and keep your images visible across a wide range of viewing angles.

The Q10 operates on the BlackBerry 10 operating system, which integrates some super useful shortcuts for preeminent multitaskers. A short swipe up the touchscreen gives you access to your open apps, while a quick swipe to the right sends you to the BlackBerry Hub.  Here you’ll find all your essential functions at your fingertips: social media, texts, BBM chat, call history, contacts and more. 

The BlackBerry Q10 gives you the tools you need to stay connected – whether that means fielding a high priority message from the boss or keeping up with your Facebook friends. A BBM chat can turn into a collaborative videoconference at the drop of a hat, allowing the more animated participants to present themselves in their full visual flare. And for in-person meetings, you can share thoughts, images, videos, and other files through the Q10’s micro HDMI connection; sending your smartphone screen to the big screen for all to see.

And you can definitely give the crowd something to look at if you take advantage of the Q10’s 8MP camera. Take beautiful, exciting images, even at night, with the built-in LED flash.

The photogenic glass weave shell on the back of the BlackBerry Q10 is elegant enough to suit the classiest ensemble – and tough enough to take on the road. The stainless steel chassis gives it a solid framework, rounding out the unique sensation of holding a BlackBerry Q10.  It looks and feels like a modern machine.  And it performs like one too - inside the slick case, the Q10 feeds off the advanced computing power of a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor.

Inside and out, the Q10 is designed for advanced efficiency and smooth performance. Its power-efficient design allows it to stay active up to 10 hours, easily sweeping through a 9-5 workday (plus your commute).

Take the BlackBerry Q10 for a spin. Whip through your workload, maximize your playtime, and get the most out of both.
