Product Description

Product Description

Elegant and distinctive, the LTE-enabled BlackBerry Q10 is the fastest, most advanced BlackBerry smartphone yet, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 3.1-inch display, full QWERTY keyboard, 16GB of storage, and an 8-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus that can also record Full HD 1080p video. The Q10 also features NFC, microSD slot for additional storage, WiFi, and support for international use with quadband GSM and WCDMA modes.

Accurately and confidently type out messages and emails as well as compose documents on the go with the BlackBerry Q10 for Verizon Wireless combines the power of the robust and responsive BlackBerry 10 platform with a large, re-engineered physical keyboard and stunning touchscreen display -- the largest ever on a BlackBerry QWERTY smartphone.

The BlackBerry 10 platform includes a variety of new features and improvements. The new BlackBerry Hub allows you to peek at your inbox from any app without having to stop what you're doing. The touchscreen BlackBerry Keyboard learns your writing style and suggests words to help you type faster, more accurately. And you'll be able to share content and apps right from your device using BBM Video with Screen Share.

You'll be able to outfit your BlackBerry Q10 with a wealth of apps downloaded from BlackBerry World -- games, music, videos, books, magazines and more. You can also browse and preview millions of high-quality DRM-free songs from your favorite artists, as well as download or rent movies and TV shows at BlackBerry World. Plus, the new BlackBerry World storefront gives you recommendations so it's easy to find something new.

In addition to connecting to Verizon's ultra-fast 4G LTE network, the BlackBerry Q10 also features Wireless-N Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) networking, Bluetooth 4.0, and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology -- enabling you to make mobile payments, add a BBM contact, or swap photos with just a tap of your phone. Additionally, this phone is Global Ready--enabling you to call, text, and access the Web from more than 205 countries around the world (more than 150 with 3G connectivity).

BlackBerry Signature QWERTY Keyboard, Now Re-Engineered

Meticulous attention has been paid to every detail of the BlackBerry Q10's design, particularly its elegant and ergonomic QWERTY keyboard, which features a wider layout and larger sculpted keys. It's designed to help you type quickly, accurately, and with the least amount of effort, and its smart keyboard software understands and adapts to your typing style. It creates personalized word suggestions and contextual auto corrections while you type. Your conversations can move along without having to waste time fixing typos. Plus with Instant Action, you can type and perform tasks faster by using shortcuts. From the home screen, just type "email Paul" or "call Paul" and the device initiates the action.

When you're not using the QWERTY keyboard, you can access apps and use gestures via the 3.1–inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display with HD 720p resolution (720 x 720 pixels).

BBM Video with Screen Share

Switch your BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) text chat to a BBM Video conversation and talk face-to-face with those that matter to you most. Use the new Screen Share feature to show photos, your browser, or review a business document together. You can even share the view from your camera. The BBM app also supports voice calling.

Camera with Time Shift Mode

Take great shots with the super-sharp 8-megapixel camera, or switch to the front-facing camera and be part of the scene. Crop, enhance, and apply artistic filters, then display your masterpiece on the big screen for all to see. Simply connect to your TV via HDMI or tap Play on to link wirelessly through DLNA.

Using the camera's Time Shift mode lets you take a picture using an ultra-short video -- capturing milliseconds before and after your photo -- so you can choose the exact moment in time when your subjects look best to create the ideal shot. It lets you select different areas in the same photo, choose the best expressions and poses, and then combine them to create one great shot. Once your photos are the best they can be, use Story Maker to weave them together and make a movie with music to share with the world.

BlackBerry Remember

Managing a busy project, or planning this weekend's party? BlackBerry Remember combines memos, tasks and much more into a single experience. It helps you organize and manage information you have on your smartphone around projects or ideas, letting you collect content such as Web sites, e-mails, photos, documents, and other files. Then, like a to-do list, you can create tasks, assign due dates, and track your progress. You can automatically sync your Microsoft Outlook Tasks with BlackBerry Remember, or configure it with your Evernote account.

BlackBerry Balance

Use your BlackBerry Q10 smartphone for work, and access e-mail, apps, and documents without compromising your personal content. BlackBerry Balance separates personal content from corporate content, providing freedom and flexibility while satisfying the need for corporate data to be highly secure and manageable. You can switch between your profiles with one simple gesture.

Voice Control

Send a BBM message, schedule a meeting, update your social networks, or open an app when your hands are full -- just by using your voice. Voice Control recognizes natural speech patterns, so you can talk naturally and always be understood. You can use Voice Control anywhere you can type, so it's easy to dictate a document, compose an email or search your smartphone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best communication device ever created June 21, 2013
Notice I didn't say best smartphone ever? Because different people need different things from their smartphones, so that title is subjective. Objectively and measurable...for email, text, social networking, etc, there is no device anywhere close to this phone.

Not for people who need their phone for Netflix and 3D gaming. Understand, I am not belittling those pastimes, but this won't serve you well if that is what you use your phone for.

Anyway. Best keyboard EVER on any device. Wait until you start clicking away at it. The rush of power you will feel as you hit every key as intended, no mistakes, no auto-correction...amazing. Monster battery, I tortured it for 11 hours at work, still over 50% at end of day. Small screen, but brilliant, clear, responsive. The 10.1 update mine came installed with has numerous improvements over BB10 initial release.

Perfect weight and feel and size. Snappy, nice camera with HDR now. So much to be excited about. LOVE this phone.

This is the best Blackberry phone ever! Finally, i have a phone with a real touchscreen, apps and 4G! Upgrading from a Bold 9930 this phone is like 10x better in every possible way. Web browser that actually works! I can open attachments in seconds with all native apps! I can scroll through thousands of emails and contacts in seconds and they don't take up my entire screen. I can actually do everything the rest of the world has been doing for 5 years plus actually have a REAL KEYBOARD so i can actually respond to emails in seconds without making a million typos and wrong auto-corrects, like all the idiots around me on the bus/train typing like fifth graders with their silly 2 fingers!! (I haven't looked at my fingers to type in 25 years, so no, i will never type on a flat piece of glass and take homosapien evolution back 2 billion years.) You can sideload all the cool Android apps like Google Maps (with navigation, works perfectly!), Amazon, Kindle, OKcupid, Candy Crush Saga, etc. to satisfy and shut up all the stupid Android zombies and iSheep. I have 5,413 contacts as i'm a real estate agent and it breezes through them just like Blackberry always has with the ability to search 1000's of fields in seconds (including Company name, which for some reason half the Android phones still can't do! Android just farts and crashes, and stupid apps like Go SMS/Contacts throw smartphones into epileptic seizures if you try to throw this many contacts or any real data at them). Plus you no longer need BES enterprise, so i can get my Exchange mail and pay $15 less a month on my phone plan, and have a real email instead of Google's gARBAGEmail that looks like email did in 1993!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Keyboard SmartPhone I ever had... June 24, 2013
I bought this phone from AT&T and it blew me away with its BB10 software and keyboard. I am from an Iphone 4S. Here is the only thing I am going to say: If this is the device you will be using to play video game, just forget about; it is not yours. Anyway, if this is the device you need to get your job done fast, this is a must have device over the competitions, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars So happy to be back home July 16, 2013

I had the Blackberry Pearl and and the Curve - loved them both. The Curve had been an upgrade from the Pearl. When the contract was up on the Curve and the battery was really toast it was about the time the Android had made it big and it sounded like writing was on the wall for the Blackberry. So - first I went with the Droid - hated it!! Next phone was the HTC Incredible, ok but the auto correcting drove me absolutely nuts and I had a really tough time with the keyboard. Hated the calendar.

Have had my Blackberry Q10 for 2 weeks now and am extremely happy with it. It is so nice to type what I want to say and have it actually appear that way on the screen, no more having to closely screen emails and texts before I send them. Still getting used to the swiping, but it is better everyday. Love, love, love having the Blackberry calendar back, it is so much easier to use - actually tells me what the date is today and in the future; I did miss that so.....

The camera is great, I take a lot of pictures of pets and they never wanted to stay still long enough for the HTC to finally decide to snap the picture - the BBQ10 takes the picture pretty much right away and it is very clear and sharp.

I really debated about the size of the Z10 screen vs the Q10 actual keyboard. Am not sorry in the slightest that I went for the keyboard, I love the feel of it and the ease of moving between numbers and symbols. The size of the screen is big enough, do kind of miss the sideways feature but I can live without it. Wish call blocking was a little easier on the Blackberry, that was a feature on the android that I haven't been able to locate without going into my Verizon account and entering the number.

And finally, the battery life is amazing........ I usually had to plug the HTC in by mid morning and if I wasn't going to be in my car at night was generally concerned about losing power.

Not a bit sorry! Blackberry rocks.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back BlackBerry August 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I started out with BlackBerry when it worked like a pager and didn't have a phone component. I had several more BlackBerries until the iPhone 3G came out and then I was an iPhone user with a 3GS, 4, and 5. This is an excellent phone and for those of us business users who love the quick typing of a keyboard, this phone is a very nice fit with most of the conveniences of other smart phones. You have to realize this is basically version 1 of the OS so beware it is not as mature as the competition. The version on my phone is They seem to be coming out with updates regularly so some of my comments may be rendered moot by a future release.

Things I don't like:
* Android ports don't work as well as native "Built for BlackBerry" apps so you might find yourself avoiding many of the apps in BlackBerry World in favor of the few but better native apps.
* Only 1 twitter account in the app that comes with the phone (and is tied to the Hub).
* Not much choice on the music streaming front yet. Spotify would make this phone awesome. I Heart Radio is native and works well. We can only hope more choice arrives in the future.
* Some things functions are not as polished as you would experience with iPhone. I would expect that to be fixed over time.
* I have two friends left on BBM which makes it useless. It set the standard a long time ago but now they need to get people back on there to make it useful.
* The great old professional ringtones are gone. You can still download and use older BlackBerry tones but this phone comes with a weak offering. Luckily it is easy enough to fix but surprising considering all my old phones had a better selection.

Things I like:
* BlackBerry as always is a great tool for communication.
