Reviewer: BlackBerry 10 QWERTY Keyboard is "Fantastic" & Software "Feels Unique"

Long time BlackBerry beat journalist Al Sacco just posted his feedback from his hands on demo with the upcoming BlackBerry 10 devices. Sacco is the latest in the line of media that RIM has been showing the devices to and as a current BlackBerry QWERTY user I was really curious to see what his response would be. After reading his write up today I think we can more or less see where these BlackBerry 10 devices will hit for current QWERTY keyboard device lovers. In Sacco’s words:

RIM definitely did not let down customers who love that QWERTY hardware keyboard with this new device. The keyboard is fantastic, and even though I only spent a few minutes typing on it, I was impressed right away and plan to get a new BlackBerry 10 QWERTY smartphone as soon as possible.

Sacco also gives us a bit of a taste about the software being way more polished than what RIM was showing at BlackBerry World. He also confirmed that the Full Touch device looks like an aesthetically pleasing and relatively light version of the Dev Alpha though not as thin as some recent Android phones. He also relates that the BlackBerry 10 experience and software “feels unique” instead of borrowed from iOS, android, or Windows Phone though it does have touches of WebOS.

I highly recommend checking out Al Sacco’s full write up on the devices. Let us know what you think in the comments!

  1. With Apple suing everyone and stopping sales of Android systems and whatever else, it may just be that Blackberry will sneak thru all that BS with a great os… hopefully
    Love my Playbook,,, my iPad3 is a dust collector and on craigslist

  2. so stoked for BB10

    I am seriously gonna be conflicted though about which models to get.

    It will hurt the pocket book buy I may have to get both…

    I ll get the all touch to try and hopefully by the time the QWERTY comes out I will have made my decision on whether I am a true keyboard guy or not.

    OMG can’t wait

  3. Hmn, my QWERTY keyboard on my Torch 9850 has a few more keys on the side of the keyboard?
