BlackBerry fans who long for keyboard will have to look towards the warmer months for the release of the BlackBerry Q10. The device will be the first BB10 smartphone to sport a hybrid touch / physical QWERTY approach. CEO Thorsten Heins has confirmed that the device will hit US shores approximately 8-10 weeks after the all-touch device, the BlackBerry Z10 is launched. Heins continued to say that specific launch dates will rely heavily on each major carrier, but consumers can expect to see the Q10 sometime in May or June.
The Q10 is still on schedule to hit other markets, including markets in Europe, this April.
