We're hot off the heels of the BlackBerry 10 event, where they released the BlackBerry Z10 and the Q10.  They also renamed the company "BlackBerry" - no more RIM.   The Z10 features a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU, 4.2-inch HD display, 16 GB of internal storage (with a microSD card slot), 1,800 mAh battery, and 4G LTE connectivity (with carriers that support it).  It'll be coming to the four nationwide carriers in the US.  The Q10 is a bit more mysterious, with a 3.1-inch HD display and a physical QWERTY keyboard.

They're nice upgrades for BlackBerry, but these phones won't be out in the States until March - after HTC's event in New York and Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where new devices are expected.  Can RIM sustain the buzz until then?  What do they need to do to compete with the three top players in the market?  Hit the comments section and let me know!
