BlackBerry, known as Research In Motion before Wednesday, has formally announced its next two smartphones, the Z10 and Q10. However, the company didn't provide much details about them.
During its launch event Wednesday morning, BlackBerry focused on demonstrating its new BlackBerry 10 operating system rather than walking the audience through specs for the phones. The company simply revealed the two devices' names and said the Z10, which is touch screen only, will arrive in the U.S. in March.
But early reviews of the Z10 have began pouring out, and they are providing some notable details.
According to the Verge, which gave the Z10 a score of 7 on a 10-point scale, the phone has a 4.2-inch screen with a 1,280 by 728 pixel resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
The LTE-capable phone also has a microSD card slot and is enabled with Near-Field Communication, or NFC, technology. The Z10 also has a 2-megapixel forward-facing camera that shoots 720p HD video and an 8-megapixel rear camera that can shoot full HD 1080p video.
