The long awaited BlackBerry 10 OS will be launched tomorrow along with some new devices, BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry X10, and maybe even more. Dare we hope these are the BlackBerry smartphones that will at long last rival Apple or Samsung devices? We have taken a look at the rumored specs and seen that RIM has put some serious effort into its new devices.

Blackberry Z10

Blackberry Z10 and BlackBerry X10 smartphones might be available as early tomorrow, and according to BGR, the price will be well below the usual $200. RIM's way of saying "we mean to be competitive" and a great price point to steal away some high-end smartphone users from the competition.

BlackBerry Z10 throws down the gauntlet at the iPhone

BlackBerry Z10 really seems to compete with the iPhone, and the latest BlackBerry Z10 viral video makes it look a lot better than its aluminum-back cousin, the iPhone. Here are some rumoured specs:

  • 4.2-inch HD LCD display with 1280 x 768 resolution
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 8-megapixel rear camera with Auto Focus and 5x digital zoom, 1080p HD video
  • 2 MP front facing camera, 3x digital zoom, 720p HD video
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 4G LTE connectivity, WiFi and GPS
  • NFC technology, microUSB, microHDMI-Out and Bluetooth
  • 16GB internal storage and a microSD Slot
  • Touchscreen intelligent keyboard

Blackberry X10

BlackBerry X10 photos leaked on Instagram

Photos of the BlackBerry X10 were leaked on Instagram this month, showing a redesigned BlackBerry with the traditional QWERTY keyboard. Who knew Instagram could actually be useful? Check out the X10 specifications:

  • OLED display with 720 x 720 resolution
  • QWERTY keyboard (yay!)
  • 1.6 GHz Dual core processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, NCF technology and LTE
  • 8 MP rear camera with HD video
  • 2 MP front camera with HD video

BlackBerry Backup Extractor and BlackBerry 10 support

However you choose to spend your hard-earned money, either BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry X10, make sure to make a backup of your BlackBerry phone in case you have any issues with it.

The BlackBerry Backup Extractor does not yet support BlackBerry 10 backups, but we are working to launch a new version of the software that will open the BlackBerry 10 backups.

BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry X10 – which one do you prefer? Or are you still thinking at the previous rumoured Naples, Nashville or London BlackBerry 10 smartphones?
