BlackBerry Z10 Goes Official: The Full-Touch BlackBerry 10 Experience

Of all the leaked hardware we’ve seen leading up to today’s BlackBerry 10 launch event, no device has been more clear in our eyes than the Z10. BlackBerry is really embracing the idea of models with no hardware keyboards from the get-go with BB10, and the Z10 is intended to highlight just how far the company has come since its QWERTY roots.

The Z10 features a 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 display, for a pixel density of 356 ppi. Around back, there’s a textured surface to give you a secure grip on the phone, which will be arriving in both black and white. The phone runs a dual-core 1.5GHz OMAP 4470 SoC, has 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of flash (with microSD expansion). There’s an eight-megapixel main camera, with a two-megapixel front-facer.

BlackBerry has spent a lot of time making sure that the typing experience on the Z10 won’t disappoint, introducing a software keyboard that adapts to the user, offering convenient tools to edit text, a smart prediction engine, and the ability to quickly adapt to text using foreign characters.
