    First they take Manhattan, and then they take the world?


    Perhaps marking one of the most important milestones they've ever had, BlackBerry maker RIM held its long-anticipated BlackBerry Experience event today in Manhattan. As promised, the company unveiled its two newest BlackBerry phones, the BB10-powered Z10 and Q10 handsets.


    But what's really got the mobile industry bubbling is the Z10, since it's the first ever BlackBerry phone without a physical QWERTY keyboard. "Gone is the impish keyboard, loved and loathed alike, to be replaced by the now ubiquitous display," writes the Huffington post, with one of their live bloggers at the event adding, "The handset looks impressive for the company's first major foray into the keyboard-less phone area."

    After a few years lagging behind the likes of Android and Apple, BlackBerry 10 is being lauded as "RIM's latest, best comeback attempt," (BusinessWeek) and its star attraction is this glossy, sleek, new all touch phone. Oh, and by the way, it's not RIM anymore, it's just BlackBerry.


    So, what, exactly was revealed today about the Z10, BlackBerry's great new hope?


    For starters, its display has better resolution than that of the iPhone 5 (1280 x 768 vs. 1136 x 640.) Slim and sleek, it sports a 4.2" screen and boasts textured surface that's easy to grip feels good in hand.


    And, as though to completely demolish the perception that BlackBerry's all about keypads and physical buttons, the new Z10 heavily stresses swiping rather than button pushing. You don't even have to push a button to turn it on, just swipe up!


    But one of the best features of BB10, which applies to both the Z10 and QWERTY-touch Q10 phones, is the way it lets the user manage apps.  All apps are integrated into the BlackBerry 10 "hub," so that app notifications and emails are easily accessed with a single swipe, even when another app is open. "You are only one swipe away from the heart of your activities," said CEO Thorsten Heins of this new innovation.


    Already, the Z10 has been praised as "striking," "powerful," and "beautiful." And from what we've seen, we at Pure Mobile have to agree. Of course, the phone will only become available in the U.S. as of March. But if you're as excited as we are, hold tight, because we're already lining up accessories for BlackBerry Z10 in time for its release.

  • BlackBerry 10 Z10 L Series all touch phone BlackBerry's new BB10 phones, among them L-Series, were heavily leaked this week

     


    So, there's still two weeks to go until BlackBerry officially unveils their two new BB10 phones, but after this week, is there really anything to show that we haven't already seen? Both the all-touch L-Series phone – also known as the Z10 – and their Qwerty/touch X10 popped up in leaks all over the place, leaving little to the imagination before the big reveal.


    For starters, there was what Gizmodo called "the clearest shots yet of BlackBerry's great Qwerty hope," referring of course to the X10. Though there's only so much a picture can say about a device, the N-Series phone looks like a slicker, more modern update to the "conservative simplicity" that RIM's always excelled at, says Gizmodo.

    As for the L-Series, we've already seen our fair share of pictures of the new all-touch BlackBerry phone, but this week revealed a couple of juicy details that were new to us at least.


    A pretty thorough video demonstration of the Z10 and its features was posted online by German site TelekomPresse, and you can view it at the end of this post.


    But just in case you were still hungry for hard facts, a leaked Rogers training manual – slides of which were secured by Techradar – has been making the rounds, revealing the actual specs behind BlackBerry's first all-touch phone.


    If the leak is to be trusted, the L-Series will sport a 4.2" high-def screen (1200 x 768 pixels), an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. It features 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, and will be powered by a Snapdragon processor.


    Now, all that remains is to learn the release date for the new BlackBerry phones, which we should find out at RIM's BB10 event, scheduled for January 30.

  • We at puer Mobile couldn't be more excited for the official launch of BB10 or for the two new BlackBerry handsets that'll be the OS' flagship smartphones.


    But for many longtime BlackBerry users, change is scary. It isn't that a new device will mean learning a new OS, or even that users will have to get all new BlackBerry accessories (shopping for cool new cases is actually fun.)


    It's that, for so many, the draw of BlackBerry is its signature Qwerty keypad, something RIM has done away with in their upcoming all-touch device – or have they?


    Actually, judging from a new hands-on video detailing the new BB10 touch keyboard, and according to Gizmodo, the "BlackBerry 10 touch screen keys could rival even its traditional keyboards."


    For starters, RIM's made the transition from physical keyboards to all touch keys pretty seamless. As Blackberry's Head of Software Portfolio Vivek Bhardwaj explains in the demo video, the keypad of the new L-Series device has stayed true to the look of traditional BlackBerry keyboards, right down to the signature "frets." So it looks and feels like the blackBerry devices you're used to.


    Where it does differ from the original is that the new touch keyboard is more intuitive and intelligent than its predecessor. It automatically separates words when you forget to hit the space bar, it understands context, learns your personal vocabulary, and knows when to switch between languages.


    The video below should put your mind at ease about making the upgrade to BlackBerry's first ever all-touch smartphone. So let the accessorizing begin!

  • Sprint’s CEO Dan Hesse has just confirmed that his company will carry Motorola’s Photon Q LTE later this year. The new 4G LTE smartphone runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 on a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. The Photon Q comes with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard,  a 4.3-inch ColorBoost Display screen,  a rear-facing 8MP camera with 1080p video capture, and a long-lasting battery (thanks to Motorola’s Smartactions app.)


    The new Photon Q is expected to ship with NFC capability to power the new Android Beam data transfer service and Google Wallet mobile payment services.


    This Android slider phone with a full QWERTY keyboard is perfect for the business community that has long been looking for a reason to retire those worn out BlackBerrys. The Photon Q is the latest 4G with a physical keyboard smartphone, joining the ranks of the Motorola Droid 4, Samsung Captivate Glide and Samsung Epic.


    Like other Motorola phones, the Photon Q LTE will be environmentally friendly and ULE-platinum certified.


    Sprint hasn’t mentioned a release date or pricing information for the Motorola device, but the company expects to make these announcements in the coming weeks.
