Blackberry Q10 Arabic Keyboard Unveiled, 4G LTE models for Middle East
Even though the Blackberry Z10 had a very successful launch in the Middle East and was called Axiom's best selling smartphone, the real Blackberry loyalists are waiting for the more texting-friendly Blackberry Q10 that is set to hit the market somewhere around April. And though we've seen a lot of shots of the camera in international editions, below is our first look at the version that will be hitting the Middle East - the one with the Arabic keyboard.
BBin has a look at the phone, and the above image is a pretty good look at the device's keyboard. Design-wise (aside from the changes in the buttons), it doesn't look much different from the key layout on the current Bold devices that are in the market. But that's what hardcore Blackberry users want anyway, and there's no point fixing something that isn't broken considering the 9900 had critical acclaim for its keyboard design.
Also, a good news is that the Q10 is actually going to be hitting the region with the 4G LTE versions. Surprisingly, the Blackberry Z10 hit the region with a non 4G variant which disappointed a few people. So they would be glad to know that we will now be getting the full-fledged version instead of a scaled back one.
Below is a hands-on of the device. What do you think?
