BlackBerry Z10

The BlackBerry Z10 (pronounced BlackBerry zed ten) is the first touchscreen smartphone to run the BlackBerry 10 operating system.

BlackBerry unveiled the new BlackBerry Z10 at a media event in January 2013, and the device became available on a country-by-country basis over the following three months. In the United States, three major carriers -- T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and AT&T -- offer the BlackBerry Z10 on their networks.

The BlackBerry Z10 features a 4.2" (diagonal) touchscreen with 1280 x 760 resolution. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage and 2 GB of RAM, as well as MicroSD, USB 2.0 and Micro HDMI ports. The Z10's front-facing camera, which is designed for video chatting, has a 2-megapixel resolution and can take 720p video. The rear-facing camera, which is designed for taking photographs, has an 8-megapixel resolution. The device, which weighs less than a third of a pound, supports 4G LTE, 802.11 wireless and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
