Comments on: Blackberry Q10: The key is the keyboard Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: Jerryg50 Wed, 15 May 2013 03:05:08 +0000 With the Z10 or the Q10, now if you want Google Maps, open the browser. Type in the web page search if you are in Canada. In the US, type

Once the maps open, save the shortcut to the desktop using the side menu. When prompted type the name to save as Google Maps. Close the browser.

Go to the desktop. Open the new Google Map icon. Log in and save your favorite place to open.

Explore the Google Map menu. There are a number of useful features. I found it to work very well for me.

Then I decided to buy something more modern – finally I’ve selected Nokia N8, however Nokia E7 was considered too. I decided to go with N8 because of very good digital camera and some additional features, like I/O ports (HDMI etc.) and a possibility to use microSD cards. Now, I want to buy a smartphone which will combine all the features I want – and to be honest: this is the physical, real keyboard. Instead of operating system, thousands of applications, I/O ports and a nice screen, I want my keyboard experience back. A great digital camera is a very nice feature, especially for a person which don’t want to have an advanced device separately, but touch-screens are unable to simulate the joy of having real keys under our fingers  So, come back keyboards, please!

You are either:

1. Shilling for RIM or
2. Technologically challenged or
3. Dumb as a bag of Nokia flip-phones

Which one is it?

I am sure it is the same on the Q, press for a long hold – multiple select then select the fourth icon down with a closed envelope behind an open one. Not sure if that is what you meant or not but for whatever its worth. Thanks for the great article.

By: Tony67 Sat, 27 Apr 2013 16:03:11 +0000 Thought I’d add a good link for the Q10 from a UK seller as the Q10 has just been launched there… sounds very busy in the background and good to see a knowledgable salesperson… Rk

By: Tony67 Sat, 27 Apr 2013 15:57:33 +0000 Good job BlackBerry and nice article. I have a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet which will get the BB 10 OS update at some point. The Q10 is going to be the perfect complement to that soon!

Nice to see that BB designed their own OS unlike all the Droid phones out there. The Z10 and Q10 are both excellent phones and BES 10 (for business use) that will accept all BYOD devices in the workplace are all winners! BlackBerry is going to be around for a number of years analysts are starting to wake up to this…

4 more product releases coming based on BB10 OS that will allow BB to access all markets. How many developments from Apple in this space? A 5S maybe a watch LOL

Not to mention I highly expect to see a licensing deal with perhaps Lenovo or Sony or both! Sony can sell in Japan using BB10 on their phones – No BlackBerry phones in Japan made by BlackBerry… Coincedence – maybe or maybe not?

By: ehhow Sat, 27 Apr 2013 13:22:09 +0000 I don’t use any apps except Google Maps, I don’t play games or watch videos on my smartphone, I take photos occasionally for work, but only occasionally, I’m not on social media all day, etc. But, man, do I crank out some emails. And I get a lot of emails, too. And a fair amount of texts.

So, yeah, I love the BB physical keyboard. I have a BB Torch (bigger screen, slide-out keyboard), and I really, really hope that model is in the queue over at BlackBerry, because I’d love to get one with the new 10 OS.

Android and Apple operating systems are dead-on perfect for most of their buyers, but not for me.

By: JuanGruber Sat, 27 Apr 2013 08:29:49 +0000 Good points. I have held off upgrading my Curve because i can’t do without my keyboard. I have an Ipod touch which provides a superior web browsing and media experience ;However, I am usually at home for that and use a Kindle as well for that experience. The Ipod is too cumbersome for writing emails and lengthy messages which is my primary use for my phone. I will be getting the Q10 first day it arrives stateside. Blackberry’s problem is repairing its brand image here. People have no idea they have new phones coming out and the people that do believe its still the old hourglass/constant battery rebooting os.

By: mentioch Sat, 27 Apr 2013 03:16:14 +0000 Why did RIM abandon the slide keyboard feature that is available on the Torch? With the other features you covered, that would make the 10 a clear winner for me. I’m not willing to give up my keyboard or lose screen landscape in favor of it.
