Do you like the look and feel of a real, physical keyboard? Then you’ll love the innovative yet classic BlackBerry Q10. It has a traditional BlackBerry keyboard but without the trackpad mouse in the middle or the old-style navigation keys. It does, however, have a great predictive text program and the traditional BlackBerry keyboard shortcuts that you’ve come to know and love.
The BlackBerry Q10 not only has a new keyboard design, but it also addresses a problem that has driven some users away from BlackBerry in the past. Instead of focusing the user interface on the keyboard, the Q10’s designers and developers have moved that focus to an interface based on gestures. For example, to access the Hub, you just swipe from the bottom up and to the right on the screen. With this simple motion, you have access to all of your notifications and messages in one convenient location.
If you swipe up from the bottom, you’ll see minimized versions of all running applications, allowing you to turn them off or switch between them with ease. You can also open menus by swiping down from the top.
The Q10 also has a virtual keyboard and a highly advanced prediction engine, which learns your typing style, as well as which words and phrases you use the most and in what context.
The camera includes BlackBerry’s new TimeShift feature, which lets you take pictures as if they were video and then capture different parts of the image at different times to create the perfect shot. So, if you enjoy great predictive texting, convenient notifications and messaging, and you never want to take a picture of someone blinking again, then the BlackBerry Q10 is the phone you’ve been waiting for.
