The phone isn't all business though. It features an 8MP rear camera that can shoot 1080p HD video with image stabilization and has 5x digital zoom. For self-portraits and video conferencing there is also a 2 MP front-facing camera that shoots 720p HD video and has 3x digital zoom.

The smartphone is 4G LTE Capable, and is backwards compatible with 3.5G HSPA+ as well as and 2G GSM/EDGE. It comes unlocked and will require a contract as well as a micro SIM card to start using.

In addition to mobile networks, the phone can connect to the Internet and other devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and NFC. Additionally, GPS is built-in so that maps and other location-aware applications can get a much more accurate fix on your location than mobile data alone can provide.

The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, which is dual-core and has a clock speed of up to 1.5 GHz. In addition, there is 2GB RAM as well as 16GB built-in flash memory for data storage. The internal memory can be augmented using a microSDHC card up to 32GB in size. A 2100mAh battery will power the phone for up to 13.5 hours while talking and up to 14.8 days on standby. Use of the touchscreen and other features may reduce battery life significantly. For charging and as a hard-wired interface to your computer, it features a micro USB port, and there is a micro HDMI port for connecting it to an HTDV, projector, or other display.

8MP Rear and 2MP Front Cameras
Capture 1080p HD video and shoot up to 8MP still photos with the rear facing camera. For video conferencing and taking self-portraits, the phone also features a front facing camera that takes 2MP stills and 720p video. Features of the rear facing camera include:
  • Back-side illumination for better low-light performance

Time Shift Photo Mode with Camera App
While taking a still photo, the camera actually records a brief video clip several milliseconds in length and allows you to move parts of the image back or forward in time. For example, letting you scroll back on the dial to open one friend's eyes, and then forward to catch your other friend smiling, before combining it all to create the perfect picture

BlackBerry 10 OS
BlackBerry 10 OS is a phone operating system designed for multi-taskers on the go. Active Frames display summary information from compatible apps, such as new messages from the Messenger app, or available file space in the Manager app, in customizable frames residing on your homepage, keeping what's most important consolidated in one place. BlackBerry Hub allows you to peek into conversations or check messages from within in any app helping you stay productive without constant app switching. And if the built-in apps aren't enough, the BlackBerry World Store is more than just an app store, you can download games, music, videos, and more; it even also pays attention to previous downloads and makes automatic recommendations for you. The OS features a virtual keyboard which can be used even on phone models that also feature a QWERTY hardware keyboard; in addition, Voice Control allows hands-free users to dictate a document, compose an email, or search for a file or contract, among other things using voice-recognition alone. Finally, BlackBerry Browser notably offers a Reader Model that cuts out the extraneous noise letting, you focus strictly on the main text of the document. To help back up files, as well as migrate them to a new BlackBerry OS device, BlackBerry Link allows you to synchronize your phone with a computer

Type the way you feel most comfortable - the Q10 features a full QWERTY keyboard for those who prefer a tactile interface as well as a 3.1" touchscreen. Either way, the keyboard input features contextual auto-correction, next-word prediction, Instant Action typing shortcuts, and a personalized learning engine that gets to know the way you type

The Q10 features a 3.1", 1:1 aspect ratio touchscreen display. With a resolution of 720 x 720, the screen has a pixel density of 330 ppi. Additionally, it features 8-bit color depth per RGB channel for a total of 24-bits, allowing the screen to reproduce over 16 million colors
Navigation
Relying on the phone's built-in GPS, the BlackBerry Maps app provides spoken turn-by-turn navigation, the option of 2D or 3D maps, and real-time traffic alerts. Furthermore, it will automatically import all your contacts' addresses so you don't have to go hunting or copy-and-paste. It will even help you meet up with friends or business associates by letting you instantly share your location

With BBM you can send instant messages, share photos, exchange documents, video conference, and more

Security
  • BlackBerry Balance provides separation between your personal usage of the phone and your work usage for an additional layer of enterprise security. Apps and data that are sent by your organization to BlackBerry devices it manages, are restricted from being accessed by personal apps, and work information can't be copied and pasted into personal apps or email messages
  • BlackBerry Protect is designed to help protect you from data theft by allowing you to remotely lock your phone, or even wipe the all of the data on it in the event it is ever lost or stolen

          Left RIM to Razr Max thinking that features were important and the android seemed to offer more bang for the buck. I guess it depends on what you want your phone to do... The Q-10 is an exquisite communication device. It is integral to itself, the logic inherent to this phone is impeccable. Every day I thank myself for going back to black. True, there are fewer apps but I've been able to recreate everything important. What's also true is that the apps I've found to replace the ones I was using on the android actually work better. This is also a faster phone with a more responsive touchscreen. "it's the keyboard, stupid" so the saying goes. What I've experienced is that I'm using the Q-10 more than I ever used my Android because the keyboard frustrations are now gone. The sound is remarkable, the reception is excellent... In summing up... This phone is a different sort of Blackberry because it's a touchscreen hybrid but it's still very much a Blackberry. This is not a phone put together by a series of apps, it's one designed to work extremely well with itself and it does. The HUB is the prime example. Every communication shows up there... I have Yahoo Messenger, a corporate email account, a personal email account, test messages and calendar information from Google Calendar all showing up in the heart of my phone... It's... I guess 'comforting' is the right word... I know what's there and what's not and I know instantly. After a 2 year diversion into android land, I won't leave RIM until they finally stop making phones and I hope that never happens. As an aside... B&H gets high marks too. I've purchased cameras from them for years, this the first phone. To the guy who commented about buying the specific ATT phone... B&H was really clear about what this phone was. The Q-10 model numbers are carrier specific and the experience I had was that the B&H presentation was clearer than most. I shopped specifically (and extensively)for the ATT version. The bells and whistle apps are available for this phone but if what you are wanting is an extremely effective communication tool and if you prefer a real keyboard...look into this phone. There's an anti Blackberry bias floating around, an android/ Apple arrogance that has no basis in reality. This phone blows my android away... Long live Blackberry!

                It took me a while to figure out that B&H sent me an AT&T Blackberry. B&H , please specify in your ad because I did not notice at time of purchase! It took 2 days for old phone provider and I to figure out that I needed to change provider. Once, I switched over to AT&T, it was a long process but worth the hair tearing patience.
                This phone is a jewel! But I still miss the old trackball(faster and more accurate than swiping) from old BB! But the beautiful keyboard makes up for all the old ways & losses.

                Great compromise if you want to keep using a "keyboard" blackberry. The new OS is great and does not freeze.

                Major issue: New program to save data "Blackberry Ink" that is not compatible with OS 6, so you loose almost everything.

                Overall, would recommend; specially with B&H / best price unlocked.

                This is really powerful phone, might be the best I have ever got. Not the same as what you may see on the street iPhones, BB is different. I have tons of emails and text everyday, making BB my best choice, the keyboard is fantastic, typing freaking fast! I would say all the features designed here is for better job accomplishment, no matter where I am, BB will give me access to do my office communication. Unfortunately, BB not has the Google Map built in, its own map app is not as powerful as Google's, and also, the app store is kind of tricky, not having as many apps as apple's or android's, however, most of apps I need, may be found in apk file, and to install directly to BB.
