All About The Upcoming BlackBerry Q10

It does not matter if you are currently a BlackBerry user or not, you are probably still anxious to see the Q10. It will have features that will feel familiar to faithful users, yet it will also boast other features that will entice the typical smartphone user to go ahead and give the brand a try. The BlackBerry Q10 will finally merge hands-on technology with a keyboard. Yes, you very well may get your dream of having the best of both worlds in this one very special phone!

Description

The biggest draw to the Q10 will be that it is a hybrid touch/physical QWERTY phone. Most faithful BlackBerry users remain so loyal simply because of the keyboard, but many other consumers have longed to try the line, if only it offered features similar to other favorite smartphone. Now everyone can be happy.

Q10 boasts a 3.1-inch display with 328 ppi. The screen is brighter and easily viewable from different angles. So, while it does have a smaller screen than what most people would like to see in a BlackBerry, it also has the familiar keyboard that makes life easy, and very accurate.

The phone does not feel heavy in your hand, but it does have a nice solid feel, which is probably due to the glass-weave back plate and steel band wrapped around the middle. It is a little thicker than Z10 though, measuring in at 10.3mm. This means that if you are used to a super lightweight smartphone, this one will definitely feel weighted, and may take a little getting used to.

Q10 boasts a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and a respectable 2GB of RAM. So, this is certainly enough to offer quick response to input. It will also have internal memory in the amount of 16GM, which is more than what most people need to store music, audio books, pictures, etc.

Although the keyboard will feel familiar, it will also feel more modern. It has those nice sculptured edges and frets you may be familiar with that the BlackBerry Bold has. Instead of being curved, the key layout is straight, and easy to find your way around.

Battery

If you had problems keeping your BlackBerry charged in the past, you may want to consider giving the brand another try with the Q10. When BlackBerry put a 1,800 mAh power unit in Z10, this was already a significant improvement. Now they have gone and given Q10 a 2,100 mAh battery. So, this is sure to make a lot of people happy.

Camera

BlackBerry has never been known to have the best camera on the market, but they do get the job done. If it wasn’t for phones like Galaxy S3, with 8-megapixel cameras, then maybe competition wouldn’t be stiff in this department. Still, the BlackBerry Q10 does alright for itself. It locks on objects and snaps pictures nearly instantly. It does not look like there will be ISO, HDR or other alternate-shooting modes available, but the TimeShift features is a nice touch.

All About BlackBerry Z10 – Cases & Accessories for Blackberry

Has BlackBerry finally joined modern times with the Z10? One of the biggest complaints people have had with their product line in recent years is concerning their styling. Consumers have wanted and demanded the performance of BlackBerry combined with the exterior appearance and display of a smartphone. Will BlackBerry Z10 deliver?

Design

BlackBerry Z10 offers a refined exterior with curved corners and a solid band of plastic (feels like metal) that encircles the perimeter of the phone. It is a bit larger than iPhone, boasts a 4.2-inch display, but there is no home button on the front.

The phone is not heavy, but it feels solid in your hand. The back is made of a soft touch, dimpled material and opens to reveal the battery, microchip and SIM. As far as display goes, you may instantly compare it to Windows phones from HTC and Nokia, but when you explore closer, you find it is so much more.

Performance and Battery Life

There should be no complaints when it comes to performance; BlackBerry Z10 is impressively responsive. It has no problem zipping in and out of messages, and from one application to another.

As for battery life, it likely won’t blow you away, but it does fall in line with other LTE devices. The average user may very well be able to get through a day without recharging, but a busy professional will definitely need to plug-in midday.

Interface

The interface of BlackBerry Z10 is brilliant, but will demand a tutorial to use it to its full potential. Gestures are used to move through software selections. There are essentially four “states” in the Z10 “country.” These include homescreen, BlackBerry Hub (messaging), in an application and in your app drawer.

The homescreen is unique, and displays a colorful grid of apps you are currently running. It will hold up to eight, and they can double as widgets. In a nutshell, the interface combines a lot of iOS and android features in one, so you essentially get the best of both worlds.

Features

  • Keyboard – The one element that BlackBerry absolutely had to get right was the touchscreen keyboard, especially after their disaster with the Storm. Fortunately, they did a stellar job on this keyboard and the word-predict feature is hauntingly accurate.
  • Browser – Z10’s browser is fantastic, loading even heavy sites with ease. It also has Flash functionality build right in.
  • Messaging – BlackBerry Hub offers respectable email capabilities. It integrates a variety of services, but can get a little overwhelming using the Twitter feature at times, if you have a lot of mentions.

Bike Mounts

When you use a smartphone bike mount, you’ll be able to take calls, change music tracks, and use GPS with zero fuss.

Arm Straps

New Global Record For Tablet Shipment

According to IDC, we’ve already created a new yearly record for tablet shipments and it’s only the first quarter of 2012.

As the result of this growth, from 28.2-million in last quarter in 2011; increasing to 56.1% in the first 3 months of 2012 alone, IDC is raising 2012 targets into 106.1-million tablet shipments globally.

As stated by a Research Director from IDC, Tom Mainelli, “Products across the pricing spectrum sold well, including everything from Apple’s premium-priced iPads to Pandigital’s line of Android-based, entry level tablets As the sole vendor shipping iOS products, Apple will remain dominant in terms of worldwide vendor unit shipments. However, the sheer number of vendors shipping low-priced, Android-based tablets means that Google’s OS will overtake Apple’s in terms of worldwide market share by 2015. We expect iOS to remain the revenue market share leader through the end of our 2016 forecast period and beyond.”

BlackBerry PlayBook: RIM Rocks with Knockout TAT Software

With their backs against the wall, RIM fights back and lands a knock out punch!

With last September’s Fall fury of 7 OS releases behind us, tech pundits move forward to witness BlackBerry’s next ‘big-thing’ — the awe-inspiring BlackBerry PlayBook software: TAT.

The new software merges both BlackBerry mobile smartphone with BlackBerry PlayBook tablet; promising to “revolutionize” the way BlackBerry users conduct face-to-face meetings.

Through TAT, users can connect several BlackBerry PlayBooks cohesively in the same virtual space. All of them are intuitively connected together in file-sharing mode; making business meetings that much more easier to communicate and transfer information.

But it doesn’t have to be business all the time. BlackBerry’s TAT will go over well with those who love to share media, audio books, and movies — the options are endless.

Through PlayBook cameras, each individual device is bound together, granting each device impressive proximity compatibility; represented by designated bubbles.

To share files, all users have to do is point and drag.

Easy and simple.

This also means that each user will have full visual control of new files, along with display with unlimited power presentation control.

You can even fling actions between different tablets and do what BlackBerry calls a “power swipe,” which allows users to push on-screen info to a nearby projector over WiFi.

Pretty impressive, looks like old dogs can still learn new tricks.

Oh Canada!

Check out TAT live!

RIM Clawing its Way Back to the Top

Confirmed: RIM Will Release its BlackBerry 4G LTE Playbook Early April

With all the tech pundits shaking their fingers at RIM, all echoing “death to BlackBerry,” it’s no surprise RIM’s flurry of moves to re-position itself in the global market has snuck under the radar.

But underneath the media clamour, rises the RIM mission to release its new updated BlackBerry arsenal; fully equipped with 4G LTE enabled hardware devices.

BlackBerry sets to introduce a newly re-assembled BlackBerry Playbook 4G LTE; expected to make its debut in April.

Cellular Firm confirms wireless tech giant Bell will be the first to roll-out the BlackBerry Playbook 4G LTE, with Rogers and TELUS LTE soon to follow suit sometime after.

Tech Fans Demand Waterproof Mobiles!

Do you hear something, a faint cry over by that way?

In the distance, across the pond in Barcelona — a rigorous chant for “waterproof phones?”

Yes it’s true, people were up in arms for it ready for the waterproof movement.

At the Mobile World Congress (MWC), there was a massive demand for waterproof mobiles, calling out all tech giants to step up their game.

And who can blame them? Like the tech mob clustered overseas, I would also love to have the option of bathing in a tub filled with melted chocolate while zoning out and doing business on my mobile. Oh would this epic dream ever be a reality.

Surely, like the tech mob at MWC, I too have mourned and grieved and pulled a few strands of hair over the death of a cell phone. Two, to be precise.

All thanks to good ol’water damage: one in a toilet; one in a drink spill.

Whether the culprit is rain, a beer spill, cereal bowl, sink, or laundry detergent — “it” happens, all the time.

But “it” doesn’t always have to happen! Especially when research Perform Protect Improve (P2i), a company who has developed liquid-repellent nano-coatings, has given us a case for mobile manufacturers to cure our mobile-to-liquid aches and pains.

As seen in the MWC consumer demand for standardizing liquid-repellent mobiles, P2i’s survey reveals 51 percent of consumers have spilled liquid on their mobile phone: 30% water spills, 13 percent coffee spills, and 8% tea spills.

And there’s more!

64 percent of users are known to take their phones out in the rain, 59 percent in the snow, 8 percent into the shower, and 3 percent into the sauna.

Looks like I’m not as crazy as you thought — the majority rules: we want waterproof protection!

What is your water-damage mobile story?

Mobile Chart of the Day: Mobile Ad Response Rates Plummet

Plummeting Response Rates Pose Concern

Here’s an interesting statistic.

YouGov has recently released an interesting mobile discovery to Tech Crunch, advising mobile ad companies need to find a new inventive way to make ads more productive.

In 1997, there was a 7 percent average for mobile ad response whereas 2011 only stimulated 0.1 percent.

But which mobile users tend to click the ad?

According to by Smaato 2010 report, it was not Android, Blackberry, or iPhone users; it was the Symbian-powered cell phones via Nokia.

In 2011, Windows Phone 7 came out at the top as with Nokia.

Do you click your ads or turn them away?
