The wait is finally over. Blackberry fans will be happy that the classic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard has returned this time with 4G and the new BlackBerry 10.1 operating system. The BlackBerry Q10 will be available from Telstra on 2 July.
With more Aussie businesses wanting to maximise productivity and connectivity away from the office, the BlackBerry Q10 on Telstra 4G is a great tool for businesses wanting to work faster and smarter.
As the Telstra Mobile Network has Australia’s largest area of 4G coverage, and is quickly expanding (we’re on track to reach 66 per cent of Australians by 30 June), our BlackBerry Q10 customers will see these advantages in more places.
In 4G coverage areas downloading files, sending emails and uploading photos on the Q10 will be fast and simple for people on the go, while HD Voice compatibility will also mean crisper, clearer calls when phoning another HD Voice handset on the Telstra Mobile Network.
With the BlackBerry 10.1 operating system customers can easily separate work applications and data from personal content – protecting your privacy.*
In another plus for businesses, BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) not only allows voice calling and video chat, but also allows screen sharing with other BlackBerry 10 contacts.**
The BlackBerry Q10 also has a 8 megapixel camera, 3.1 inch screen, 1.5 GHz dual core processor and 16GB shared internal storage (expandable up to an additional 64GB via a separately purchased Micro SD card) and a 2100mah battery for long battery life.
From Tuesday 2 July 2013, Telstra Business and Consumer customers will be able to purchase the BlackBerry Q10 on a range of plans.
