It’s been a long time coming but AT&T customers can now expect to get their hands on the BlackBerry Q10 on June 21. The physical keyboard-toting gadget will cost the industry standard price of $199.99.
With an expertly designed typing surface that’s based on BlackBerry’s legendary Bold line of handsets, the Q10 features keys that are billed as 30 percent larger. In my experience with the device, I can certainly vouch that punching out messages on the keyboard is both fast and accurate.
That said, to make way for the bigger key layout you sacrifice screen real estate. The Q10 uses a tiny 3.1-inch touchscreen which offers an eye-straining view of websites, photos, and video. Still, the new Q10 runs BlackBerry’s freshest software, BB10, and connects to AT&T’s lightning quick 4G LTE data network.
