    BlackBerry stocks sank yesterday following the announcement by BlackBerry bosses that BB Messenger would be made available on Android platforms. This must have come as a huge disappointment not just to the market but also to the millions of BlackBerry fans who have stuck with it for a very long time. But another news that has brought cheers to millions of other BlackBerry fans throughout the world is the news that the Ontario, Canada based company is launching a toned down version of its BlackBerry Q10 in the form of BlackBerry Q5 that will come with the QWERTY and a small touchscreen. The handset will run on BB10 and would

    The handset whose pictures were leaked to the media and were among the most searched pictures on the internet was earlier thought to be coming under BlackBerry 10 R series handset but BlackBerry has clarified that the handset will be coming under Q line of handset. In my view Q denotes QWERTY handsets and BlackBerry is set to stick with it in the days to come.

    To be true, because of the fact that BlackBerry Q10 and Z10 both come with huge price tag, there were rumors that QWERTY handsets with lower price were imminent. For the last several weeks the handset was being talked about across the tech world. But no one was sure that Canadian company will actually launch it so early and showcase it to the world. The new handset with obviously lower specs will make it possible for many million people to go for it, instead of very expensive Q10 and Z10 handsets. In the meantime BlackBerry CEO while announcing a lower Q5 version said that the Q5 device will be available in selected markets this summer. It is the company’s third smartphone to run the new BlackBerry 10 system and is an instrument to take on cheaper Android and Windows Phone 8 operating systems. notwithstanding the new announcement, BlackBerry lovers in much of the world including the United States are still awaiting its arrival of Q10 with great patience. For many BlackBerry Q10 fans this is very disappointing that despite months after being showcased, the handset is still not available in markets and they are forced to wait for the handset when it should have already been delivered to them. The delay cost BlackBerry, Ontario, Canada based smart phone manufacturer dearly in case of its first full touch screen handset Z10 and many analysts believe it will cost it even more in case of Z10 if the company further delays the launch.

    Blackberry Q 10 is set to be more successful than Z10. So far it has been launched in Canada and UK and the response has been massive. There is sort of newfound enthusiasm among Blackberry fans across the world since the launch of BlackBerry Q10, QWERTY handset. The handset not just comes with QWERTY keyboard, but also 3.2 inch touch screen. So it brings the best of both world and mainly entices BlackBerry old timers who were charmed by the ease of use of its QWERTY handset. A US Today report calls the handset “your Back to the Future BlackBerry” and goes on to add, “…It’s got the kind of physical Qwerty keyboard that BlackBerry loyalists were so enamored with on prior generation handsets”. BlackBerry Q10 that comes with a QWERTY keyboard and a 3.2 inch touch screen, it has everything for almost everyone. Almost every BlackBerry fan would like to get this handset not because of the fact that it acts like the old BlackBerry handset, but also because of the fact that it has improved tremendously and is completely compatible with iOS and Android, the two leading mobile operating system. Many analysts are upbeat about the company’s prospects in the days to come. Jefferies analyst Peter Misek in a note to the clients said, “Our checks indicate broad sellouts with generally limited stock otherwise…Based on our store checks, the BlackBerry Q10 has been selling extremely well and has been sold out or seeing limited availability in Toronto and across the U.K”. this must be the best news for BlackBerry that was earlier known as Research in Motion (RIM).

    The handset comes with top specifications and great features. Q10 comes with exceedingly great specifications and are being loved by old time BB fans and new converts too. As far as specifications are concerned, Q10 comes with everything great. 3.1in 720×720 Super AMOLED touchscreen, physical QWERTY keyboard, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 4G and HSDPA connectivity, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 8MP autofocus rear-facing camera with LED flash and HD 1080p video, 2MP HD 720p front camera, Blackberry 10 mobile operating system, 119.6×66.8×10.4mm, 139g and everyone expects this great handset to be a super hit in the market.

    Meanwhile Q10 fans are awaiting the arrival of Q10 with bated breath. Its US launch is expected in June. Blackberry Q10 will arrive in the U.S. early and will be priced $249 with a two-year contract. The good news is the It will be available for Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint Nextel Corp. and T-Mobile USA. The extensive availability will certainly help BlackBerry, but the handset should have arrived in the US earlier. The handset is expected to be priced $249 in the US with two year contract. So things are looking bright for the Canadian company, whose stocks also crossed $16 at stock market. This must be a great news for BlackBerry phones.
