will a fully touchscreen smartphone be the saving grace of the ailing BlackBerry (formally, Research In Motion)? perhaps. after much anticipation (or lack thereof), BlackBerry has finally unveiled its latest OS, the BlackBerry 10 and along with it, a pair of new LTE-enabled handsets – the BlackBerry Z10 & Q10 LTE-enabled Smartphones. though it is worthy to note that the keyboard-equipped Q10 will not surface till April. the Z10, on the other hand, is almost immediately available to various markets, including the UK, Canada and UAE. Stateside should be seeing the Z10 in March, with most carriers already accepting pre-registration. as far as we can see, BlackBerry is counting a lot on the Z10 and hence, its near-immediate availability. well, it is better to throw in the lifesaver before its to late, ain’t it? we wouldn’t say the Z10 was a love at the first sight but as far as aesthetic goes, it is actually quite a looker. beyond that (and the BlackBerry 10 OS), expect features such as a 1,280 x 768 resolution 4.2-inch touchscreen display that packs 356ppi, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot (support up to 64GB), a 8.0-megapixel BSI main shooter with 1080p HD video recording capability, a 2.0-megapixel front-facing camera (HD video recording capable), micro HDMI, LTE network, NFC support and a 1,800 mAh battery that offers up to 10 hours talk time on 3G and up to 13 days standby time. needless to say it also has the usual bunch of connectivity and sensors such as WiFi, 4G Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS (A-GPS), accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity and ambient light sensor.
