BlackBerry R10 –Latest BlackBerry Phone

Images of the next BlackBerry device, the BlackBerry R10 have leaked fuelling rumours that the R10 is the budget Q10.

BlackBerry launched their new OS BlackBerry 10 earlier this year in a bid to revamp their offerings and flagging image. BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry 10 were launched with the BlackBerry 10 platform. While the BlackBerry Z10 is a completely new, sleek, touch-screen offering the Q10 is more traditional and comes with a QWERTY keyboard.

Cheaper variants of flagship devices or ‘minis’ seem to be the latest rage in the gadget smartphone world and BlackBerry has caught up with the trend. However, BlackBerry Z10 has clearly been the company’s blue-eyes boy with the Q10 being relegated almost the background. Not only was the Q10 launch delayed by BlackBerry, there have been little or no promotions surrounding the device. Seems a little odd though, that the Canadian phone-maker would come up with a ‘mini’ or cheaper variant of the Q10 and not of the Z10.

We wonder if BlackBerry is afraid of bringing out a younger sibling of the Z10 fearful that the budget model will take over the over-priced flagship device. Whatever the case, we love the Q10 equally and are not complaining at this new version.
