Unboxing the Blackberry Q10 Video Transcript
-At long last. -You've been waiting for this. -I have been waiting and I am excited about this perversely because we didn't have a good luck with the Blackberry Z10. -No. We were not fans but the Blackberry is all about that physical keyboard. -They are and so the Blackberry Q10 or as we are calling it the BBQ10. -I love that. -I mean if barbeque is involved, how can we not love it? -We need to torture test this thing by throwing it in barbeque sauce. -Oh, I think we do. Actually I think we have some other ideas. All right. Can we finally? -Let's do it. -Right. -There it is. Boom. -Q10. -Q10. Oh, look at that. Looks like a Blackberry. -Yes. That's hilarious. It's half underwhelming, half awesomely old school. -I love them. I love the physical keyboard. I really do. -I know. -That screen is tiny though. Doesn't it feel tiny? -Yes. That's just embarrassing. -Yes. -Wow. Look how small that is. I'm assuming it's so lightweight because the battery is not in there yet. I mean it's a nice size overall. It sort of feels nice in the hand. I don't know that you've want something so top heavy if the screen was a lot bigger. I don't know. -Maybe. You know phones are getting so big now I feel like you could still get a lot more real estate on the screen and keep the keyboard. -And it wouldn't feel too weird. All right. Let's see what else we have in here. -Just things like the Blackberry-- -This is very-- I have to say, this is a very nicely packed box. Let's see here. Got a whole bunch of instructions which you need because it's a brand new operating system that no one's ever used before. That's completely impossible to navigate as we found out so painfully in Barcelona, okay. Aha. -Battery. All right. So cool beans. -I don't know. I'm gonna bust this out right now. -Oh. -This is like the linguini of headphone cords, fettuccine. -It is like fettuccine. -It's more fettuccine. Yes. It's odd. -It is. What are those little hoops for? -I don't know. For my earrings? All right. We'll finish that up and do the specs. The BBQ10 is running Blackberry's newest OS 10.1. -It's processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with 1.5 gigahertz dual-core CPUs. -It has 2 gigabytes of RAM but just 16 gigabytes of flash storage. It is expandable via micro SD but only up to 32 gigabytes. -The display is kind of sad. It's a 3.1-inch screen and the resolution is only 720x720. -Speaking of the keyboard, it is the biggest selling point. It has a full 4 rows with 35 keys, and Blackberry says the keys are 30 percent bigger than on previous models. -In terms of the camera, the rear-facing shooter is 8 megapixels with an LED flash and 1080p HD video recording. -The front-facing camera is 2 megapixels and can take 720p HD video. -The Q10 is a 4G phone and it also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. -Battery life could be dicey. The battery is 2100 milliamp hours but it is removable so you could carry a spare. -Blackberry claims up to 13-1/2 hours of talk time over 3G and 14 days of standby time, but that's also over 3G. -For connectivity, you'll find micro USB for charging and micro HDMI for sending video to TVs which you will want to do because the screen is so bad. -The BBQ10 costs $199 on contract. -Oh, look. I can get Maxim for free. -Oh. -That's kind of the only-- -Can I see it for a second? -One of the only apps available. You could borrow that for a minute if you want. So other than that, first impressions? -Yes. You know not a very responsive screen in our short time with it. -Yes. -And small and not a lot of real estate but I like the keyboard. -I know. I mean I'm excited to do some email I guess and try it out. But man, as a full-featured smartphone in a world overwhelms with full-featured smartphones-- -Yes. -This does seem a little on the weak side. Maybe not quite as smart. Read our full review over at CNET.com to find out if it is the Blackberry for you if you have to have that keyboard. I'm gonna spend some time with it. -Yes. -But I'm not gonna use those weird headphones.
