  • Z10: The Z10 features a 4.2-inch LCD touch screen with 1280 x 768 pixels, making a pixel density of 356 pixels per inch. It is 9mm thick.
  • Q10: The Q10 is a more traditional-looking BlackBerry smartphone in that it has a smaller, 720 x 720 pixel screen and a physical QWERTY keyboard.

On top of the new Phone phones, Canadian tech firm is changing its company name to BlackBerry to fit with its brand of smartphones.

“It is one brand, it is one promise,” Chief Executive Thorsten Heins said at the event. “From today on, we are BlackBerry everywhere in the world.”
