Along with the video overview of the BlackBerry Q10, the @1337group also snapped some pictures beside the BlackBerry Z10 which gives us an idea of how the 2 compare. As much as I love my Z10, I do sometimes miss a real keyboard. Mostly for the shortcuts. I really like the look of the Q10 and I’m sure keyboard enthusiasts will find it fits their needs.
Check out the pictures below and let us know your thoughts.
The back of this Q10 looks to be the smooth, glass weave version. We have seen a rubberized version as well. I wonder if they will go with smooth for white and rubberized for black similar to the Z10. It’s interesting that we have seen both.
As these pictures are obviously taken on top of a carrier display case, I wonder if carriers have access to the Q10 for testing. It would make sense since BlackBerry has confirmed the global launch to be in April.
Notice the 2 tiny microphone holes on top of the Q10 as opposed to only one on the Z10. My understanding is these are used for noise cancellation so it’s interesting that the Q10 has an extra one.
