Blackberry, the company formerly known as RIM, unveiled its new Blackberry 10 device after much hype.
The new device, officially named the Z10
, replaces the Blackberry's signature QWERTY keyboard with touchscreen technology. The phone boasts a 4.2" display at 1280x768 resolution on a 356ppi LCD screen. Other features include an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video, 16 GB of storage (with an additional 48GB available via microSD storage), a dual-core 1.5 GHz CUP, and 2GB of RAM.
The expected price of the phone will be around $200. The phone will be available for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile, but won't be released in the US until sometime in March. Canada, which houses Blackberry, will be an early adopter; the phone will start shipping in the Great White North next Tuesday, February 5th.
The United Kingdom, though, will get it even earlier: as in tomorrow. First Down on, not Blackberry 10. Is there anything they don't make us Americans wait for?!Watch All Access Weekly Wedsnsdays at 1a/1c on SPIKE.Source: Mario Tama/Bloomberg/Getty Images News
