Research In Motion, now called simply 'BlackBerry', has finally announced details of its first BlackBerry 10 handset, the 4G-capable BlackBerry Z10.
The device is the first to use the new BlackBerry 10 OS based around the concepts of Hub, Flow and Peek, and signals BlackBerry's ambition to take on rival headline-dominating handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone.
The Z10's core specs include a 4.2-inch 4-point multi-touch display with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be augmented by an additional 32GB with a microSD card.
While the device is clearly aimed at traditional BlackBerry users, BlackBerry also knows it needs to appeal to consumers too (including the Bring Your Own Device crowd). It's covering both input bases: the Z10 will come with a touchscreen, and a Qwerty and touchscreen equipped model (also announced on Wednesday) to be released in the near future.
The Z10's lock screen, which shows notification updates on the left-hand side without the need to unlock the device, is shown above.
