AMSTERDAM: CANADIAN SMARTPHONE MAKER Blackberry showed off its latest Qwerty smartphone, the Blackberry Q10, at the Blackberry Jam Europe developer conference in Amsterdam on Wednesday.
The handset has a physical keyboard, echoing the firm's older devices such as the Blackberry Bold 9000. Blackberry said that this is the largest and most rugged physical keyboard it has ever built into a smartphone, and that it's three percent larger and retains an edge to edge design.
The Blackberry Q10 also touts a 3.1in touchscreen OLED display and uses black backgrounds to save battery life. With 4G LTE support, the Blackberry Q10 also has the biggest battery yet, but Blackberry didn't provide an estimate of battery life. The Blackberry Q10 is due to launch in April. µ
