Just today I dropped in at the Blackberry Q10 media briefing and launch and laid both my eyes and hands on the Q10, the first Blackberry 10 smartphone with QWERTY keyboard.

Oh how I missed a QWERTY keyboard!

It was heartbreaking (over I’m a little over-dramatic here) for me to give up my Blackberry Torch. Barely 2 weeks after I passed my BB Torch to my staff, I caved in and bought myself a BB 9900, the most good looking BB at that time. That damn BB hung on me every 30 minutes so I sold it off after 1 week.
And that was the end of my affair with Blackberries.

Today as I pushed the buttons on the Q10 excitedly, I remembered how I loved keypad on my phones. But at RM2388, I don’t think I’ll be picking this up anytime soon. However bear in mind I have not tested the phone (other than 10 minutes of toying with it) and this is just the price talking. Perhaps I might end up loving it, but that leaves to be seen, since there are no review units available.

Just like you, I’ll be waiting for reviews online and opinions of new owners before I decide.

There isn’t much for me to write today, but I got these really useful and informative PDFs from Blackberry Malaysia and I thought it’s a shame not to share. Bear in mind I don’t normally repost press releases on my site but these slides doesn’t count right? :)

The new Blackberry = Re-designed. Re-engineered. Re-invented. REALLY?

This is a lovely visual walk-through. Even I had a good read.

I was a BB user but was only on BlackBerry® 6 and BlackBerry® 7 so I found this reviewer guide to be really informative as I read on what BB10 has to offer. All presented in such a compelling manner too.

Remember how the phrase “Blackberry sucks” is always uttered when it comes to picture taking time? Well the camera was the first thing I tested when I had a chance to try the Q10.
It was much improved, especially on the speed.

We all know BBs are best for work. But BB knows how all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
The keyword is Balance. How aptly named.

    It has 0 grams of total fat, 420 mg’s of sodium, 1 grams of total carbs and less than 1 gram of protein in it. College kids gain on average about ten pounds the first year. As a matter of fact, most recipes are long cooking ones that require several hours of cooking time to complete.
